MAKESGIVING – Saturday November 22nd, 7:00pm

Welcome to Makesgiving. This is an event that has been held all over New England that is a time to spend time with our friends and chosen family. On November 22nd, I would like to invite all of our members and our extended community of maker spaces, hackerspaces, and community workshops to join us in breaking bread. We will have a potluck Dinner that starts at 7:00 PM. I encourage you to bring your family and friends to see where you spend your free time. 

Please sign up on this Doc with what you plan to bring.

This year, I would like to try something different. Every year we enjoy vast amounts of food and friendship. I would still like to follow this formula with one addition. I would like for everyone coming to match what they bring to share with a donation of pre-packaged food or gift card to a local market. If you spend 10 dollars on the meal, I request you to also spend 10 dollars to help those less fortunate in our city of Somerville get a needed supplies.
