We are getting the keys tomorrow!!!
We have appointments with Eastlink and NS Power. Our occupancy permit is still being worked on. We will set an official opening date for later this month. Lots of activity!
Moving Help and Free Pizza
In the meantime we need to get the space into a functional state. We have a bunch of stuff in storage that we are planning to move into the makerspace this Saturday (Aug. 5th) starting at 9:30 am
. We would love to have some volunteers to help move stuff. If you are able to help please meet us at the U-Haul Storage facility at 156 Bluewater Rd. in Bedford. Or if you can’t make it until 10:30 am or after we will likely be over at Unit #19, 275 Rocky Lake Dr. in Bedford; feel free to meet us there to unpack the truck. For convenience, I’ve rented a large U-Haul truck so we probably don’t need extra vehicles for moving stuff, just lots of hands to make the work go quicker. As a reward for helping us move you’ll get an advance preview of the space and we’ll also order some pizza for lunch.
We need your money!
If you haven’t committed to becoming a member then this section doesn’t apply to you. But if you’re starting to get excited about the new makerspace and want to commit there is no time like the present. You can keep reading below for payment info and email us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
to let us know you want to join.
We will have a bunch of deposits and installments for power, insurance, rent, etc. coming out soon so if you have made a commitment to become a member of the space now is the time to start submitting those dues payments. We take a wide variety of payment methods, but if you aren’t picky there are some methods that will help us cut financial transaction costs and/or cut the administrative time we need to spend collecting dues.
The best thing you could do is pay for a year up-front. As an incentive we are giving a month free
to each person paying for a year up-front. Core members ($50/mth) can pay $600 for the year; that includes the initial signup fee of $50. Associate members ($25/mth) can pay $300 for the year; that includes the initial signup fee of $25. We can avoid expensive transaction fees if you pay this via Interac email money transfer, cheque, or cash. Paypal and in-person credit card are also options.
If you would rather stick with monthly payments then a recurring Paypal subscription would make our administrative work much easier. You can sign-up for that at: http://halifaxmakerspace.org/dues/
. You can also pay monthly with Interac email money transfer, cheque, cash, in-person credit card, or manual Paypal payments (https://paypal.me/HalifaxMakerspace
Cheques should be made payable to “Halifax Makerspace Society”.
Interac email money transfers should be sent to email@example.com
Manual Paypal payments should be sent via https://paypal.me/HalifaxMakerspace
