Fall Cleanup


Saturday, 18 November, 10:00am – 2:00pm

Enough binging; it’s time to purge!

We’re clearing out abandoned projects* and the boneyard. We’ll have a dumpster and a determined attitude. Pizza will be provided for dedicated helpers!

*Red tags were placed on projects in the large storage area. If you have a project there, please either take it home or verify that you are still working on it by replacing the red tag with a green one. Contact Jared if you can’t make it in to the space before the purge. All red tag items will be removed from the space.

Thanksgiving at LVL1 2017


Thursday, 23 November, 1:00pm – 8:00pm

Don’t have a place to celebrate? Just need a break from your relatives? Wanna be able to say you spent the day being thankful with a charitable organization? (LVL1 is a 501c3, after all.) Ben is graciously hosting the 6th annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner at LVL1 again this year.

You do not need to be a member to attend this event. You don’t even have to have been at the space before. (First time visitors will need to sign a waiver for themselves and any minors they bring with them. Minors will need to be actively supervised — we have power tools after all.)

We are providing all the basics and folks are welcome to bring side dishes, desserts, and drinks. While this is aimed at folks who don’t have a place to go, all are welcome! Please RSVP and let us know if you are bringing a dish so our organizers can plan for everyone. You can sign up on our Facebook event page here or by adding your name to our Google Doc here.
