Club125 is moving forward in our mission of service to our community, but we are stretched thin on volunteers. Did you know that the Club has no employees? It's true. As volunteers we are the Club and we are the community which we serve. We fund it, we work it. It's a bit of a stone soup enterprise at times.
We are pleased to welcome Windy Cooler to our team, our newest member to volunteer as… our coordinator of volunteers! In addition to managing her Family Parlor "experiment", Windy will be the primary person to respond to questions about how you can help the club achieve our mission. She will also help you schedule use of our facility… you did know the club is available for holiday and birthday parties, and business use in addition to our non-profit series of workshops and seminars… right? Please use our contact or volunteer form to reach Windy. Thanks!

The Arduino is a small inexpensive microcontroller that can be used in a wide variety of engineering, arts, and crafts projects. Any project that interfaces or interacts with the physical world can probably benefit from using an Arduino, with sensors, switches, lights, motors, or other control devices. Not sure what this means? Take a look here, or here.
The next class starts Wed, Jan 8th, 7:30 – 9:00pm. Register below…
Great news for our local FLL teams! By luck of the draw, our state qualifier event is not scheduled until Saturday, Feb 1. This allows us to extend our team signup through Thanksgiving weekend. In addition, we have an anonymous donor who is now sponsoring our use of the Club125 facility, so there is now no fee to join a team. Those who have already paid a fee will receive extended membership in Club125. (Sorry, no cash refunds.)
To support kids who are new to FLL, or adults who would like to help!, we have scheduled six intro and training sessions. To sign up for a team and/or training, please visit our FLL website. Please let us know if you can not make it to our Wed/Thur 6pm team meetings, and we will do our best to schedule a weekend time that works for you.

“I’m the last of the breed,” says John Vecchiarelli, the last knife-sharpener from Guardiaregia. Bring a utensil or tool that needs sharpening down to the club, 9am-1pm this Saturday or next. John charges a reasonable fee for his services. We'll supply the coffee and snacks. More info is available on Facebook…
