Be Excellent to the 'Space

These are projects that need to be done around the space for the benefit of the space. If you want to help out on a project dig right in, if you need guidance ask a board member, if you want help with a project post to the group and see who wants to help.

Once you start working on a project put your name after it. Once you finish a project move it down to the finished list so people know who to thank.
