If you’re a business owner, entrepreneur, or maker and would be willing to offer insight into relevant programs, materials and tools for the makerspace, or you’re interested in joining our Makerspace Advisory Group, please contact Faith for more information (705-526-4216 ext. 3305, We want to hear from you!
