Destination INNOVATION to Host a Public Meeting on September 8

InnovationSign    Destination INNOVATION, an initiative of the Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro, will be hosting a public meeting on Thursday, September 8, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at 46 West Main Street, Waynesboro, PA. The objective of the meeting is to solicit the community’s assistance in developing a permanent “creative technology center” downtown. This would serve as a “maker space” and hub for a series of classes, workshops, lectures, forums, and hands-on learning and project / business-building opportunities.
