Good News! The Firewheel will have more space available to hold meetings. Sometime next week the storefront next to the Firewheel will become available. This will be helpful for those needing a private and/or quieter space for their event. You can show movies and PowerPoint presentations without disruption to other meetings. Private closed meetings can take place without the need to close the shop to the public. The number of meetings held at the same time can be increased without making the shop feel too crowded or noisy.
B&W Printer Services will also become available in the next few weeks. Many study groups have meetings in The Firewheel. They love the atmosphere and the books & coffee but many times need to print hard copies or files off their computers. That will no longer be a problem as we will soon offer B&W copies for customers at a more than reasonable price per sheet on the Canon 2830 (pictured here).
Our community appeal to grow the Firewheel.
These efforts to make The Firewheel the community center we all want it to be does not come without a price. We have operated on a shoestring since day one and despite the praise we receive from the community, we are only now beginning to do more than just pay the bills each month.This copier is an important service needed for the community and will aid our customers and grow our business. But the $300 we still need to pay for this copier is not easy to part with. Make no mistake, this copier will be here. It is being kept until we pay it off. But with support from the community we can offer printing much sooner than later. We are asking for donations to ease our burden and get this service up and running soon.
We want to set the trend for the type of community we want to life in. Just recently we were finally able to pay for recycling pickup. Now we are looking to find ways to make our customers needs available locally. Lets breath life back into the downtown area without the corporate logo stamped on every storefront. Lets work together to make anything we need available within walking distance from our homes or workplace. Lets all make Everett a sustainable community looking towards the future.
