Staunton Update

The dates for our trip to help in the community garden in Staunton is still set for April 6th from 11am- 1pm (approx.)
In addition we would like to have some class representation at the planting of the Elizabethan apple trees a few days later, on the 9th of April.

We have recently gotten in contact with CAB, after receiving a positive response back from Sunspots Studios, and the idea for a student trip to the glass blowing shop was well received. The CAB representative we contacted was very receptive to the idea and said that they would bring it up in the next CAB meeting. We will be emailing Sunspots Studios to inform them of the welcome reception our idea has had thus far, and that we will contact them again with the name of the CAB member with whom they will continue to orchestrate the trip and the pricing. We will continue to be as involved as we can during the planning process of this trip.

RC Electric

After contacting our chroming company we have come to find that the distinct "Silver Streak" trim is beyond any form of repair or chroming. Due to this circumstance we are now in need of a new one. A few individuals have been contacted in regards towards a donation to purchase the hood trim. We are waiting to hear word back from them as to how much they would like to donate.

Ideas of Fundraising opportunities have been brought up in order to raise some money which is much needed after discovering that some of our items are beyond repair.

Here are some photos that show us what we will be looking at for a completed car.

Currently we have the white papers completed and we will be printing them out and applying them to each of our grants.

We are going to send the grants out within the next couple weeks.

Our next step is to install the interior in the next few weeks.

Chrome should be finished within a week or two.

The running boards will be completed once we visit the garage to install the interior or the brakes.

Contact has been made with Electro Automotive and talked over what needs to be done with the conversion in order for a smooth development.

The group working with Transition Staunton has begun to communicate with Sunspot Studios, a glass shop based in Staunton, about potentially setting up a glass blowing session which would be open to all students on campus for what we hope will be a reduced group rate. The glass blowing session would potentially involve a beginners glass blowing class, a take home ornament designed by each participant,  and hopefully a more advanced demonstration. Ultimately the size of the trip WILL be limited. As we find out the terms, conditions, and pricing for this event we will provide updates on the trip's progress. Never fear, we will keep you as up-to-date as we can for this exciting and interesting trip!
