Making it Happen
Maker Update AND a Note From Founder kelley Roy
Hello ADX Community,
I can’t believe it is back to school time already! Maybe you’re not going back to school but are missing the energy that comes with buying fresh pencils and learning something new? Your practical education in building, printing, metal working or jewelry making can start right here! Hand make something you can show off to all those friends (young and old!) who are going back to school!
I am so excited to share with you our new Friend Referral Program! This is the perfect opportunity to get your buddy who has been talking about making a table for YEARS into the shop. As well as help you out with your membership costs! It’s good for everyone. Read all the details about it below.
I can’t wait to see you at ADX for a class, working on your project or for lunch with me and fellow members to talk shop on September 6.
Here’s to lifelong learning and working together!
New Member Meetup
September 6, 12:30pm
Are you a new member at ADX? Or thinking about becoming a member? Or a not-new-member and fancy some free food and wonderful company? Come by for lunch and get to know the ADX community! This will be a fun, informal meetup including food, and some handmade Jenga! We encourage you to bring something to share although ADX will be cooking! It’s Taco Thursday!
Friend referral program
now through september!
Stop in at the front desk and grab a stack of Hail Safety cards, use a permanent marker to put your full name and email on each card, and hand them out to all of your friends. When they come in to sign up for a membership, and present that card, you receive a credit (50% off the membership price they signed up for)! You are also welcome to bring your friend into ADX and sign up in person to get your credit. Start chatting your friends up now because we are only doing the referral program through the end of September!
