Hey there raleigh [ ] space backers!!
It's been a big month for the parklet… it's ON THE GROUND and starting to take shape. Here are some updates for you.
We have LOVED meeting those of you who have stopped by this month to collect your backer rewards. We have many bags waiting at Deco Raleigh for pick up… we'd love to see the rest of the bags go home with our backers!
If you requested a reward when you donated, we sent you an email and a letter in the mail. Your letter tells you if you have a bag waiting at Deco Raleigh-- this includes your t-shirt. The letter also mentions that we'll hang onto the goodies until October 31. We REALLY want you to have your stuff!!!
The steel frame for the parklet was installed the first week of October. You might enjoy the time-lapse video of our install here: http://www.raleighspace.org
This month, we'll be installing tempered glass "windows" and will be framing benches and planters, which should be ready by Thanksgiving.
A few people have asked why we couldn't just knock it out in a weekend. Boy would that be a dream! Our designers and builders are all DONATING their time while they carry on the rest of their lives that include oral exams for Masters' degrees, paying jobs and teaching. We are having work days weekly, so if you want to chip in, we would LOVE to have you join us!!
We'll keep you posted over the next few weeks. Top priority for you is to grab your goodies from Deco Raleigh!! If you have questions or need help with that, please feel free to contact Pam Blondin, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again for being part of TEAM PARKLET!!
