For Canada Day 2017 we changed-up the kids "hammer-in" to make butterfly boxes, 70 box kits were given out and hammered together by the kids. Thanks to Recreation center for sponsoring this event and to Squamish Home Depot for their support in the material cost.
2017 Tool Library Extension.
Due to the need for more space at the tool library through the spring/Summer we built a free standing shed adjecent to the existing tool library shed. This will house the library check-in/out desk, small consumables and a battery charging table - the pictures are from the open house held in Sept 2017 to celebrate the new addition.
The PVMSS members were able to build this shed with the support of donations to covering the material costs, many thanks to:
We plan to protect the breezeway space with awnings that will enable the space to be weather protected for activities such as workshops. Funding is in place for this thanks also to grants from Squamish Savings.
