$25,000 Endowment Established for Cruces Creatives!
Thanks to the generosity of Beverly Denney, who made a donation in memory of her late partner Ron Tipton, Cruces Creatives now has a $25,000 endowment through the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico! This endowment will be an important source of operating funds and a foundation for future growth—it’s a huge boost to our community makerspace!
To celebrate the new opportunities offered by the endowment and to thank Beverly for her tremendous generosity, all makerspace members and volunteers are invited to a light brunch with Beverly at Cruces Creatives 10:00 a.m. to noon. If you can attend, please RSVP at http://www.crucescreatives.org/event-3316977.
Call for Summer Camp Instructors
Do you have an idea for using the resources at Cruces Creatives to help children develop their skills in science, technology, engineering, art, or mathematics (STEAM)? If so, email Pat DeSimio email@example.com--Cruces Creatives is planning a variety of youth summer camps, and you could be part of the team putting together fun and educational programs for kids in Las Cruces.
Mini Maker Faire in Albuquerque April 6 and 7
On the first weekend in April, there’s a Maker Faire in Albuquerque!
