Community Projects are designed to provide a win-win situation for members and the public. These teams meet weekly for a 4-hour work session and are made up of all skill levels from beginners to advanced. All members are welcome and can come when they are able.
Projects are lead by an experienced leader who assigns tasks to individuals or small teams based on skill levels. These teams are an excellent opportunities for members to learn their craft and socialize with other members.
