Safety Note

  • Keep areas around fire extinguishers, including the floor, clear.

Helpful hint

  • The blue light switches at Lenox in the alley entrance hall do not turn lights on and off directly. For turning off lights, the switches send a signal to a controller to sound an alert and turn off lights after about 5 minutes. This is to ensure no one operating machinery has the lights go out on them unexpectedly. To turn off lights immediately use the little red boxes in the various areas.

Rule and Regulation of the Week

  • Adult family members of members can join the Makerspace for a mere $10 a month.
