First Friday Foundry News - February Edition

Greetings Foundry Family!
It's been quite a while since sending out one of these updates (in the before times they went out weekly with scheduling information) but for now I plan to send one wrap up a month just to keep everyone in the loop. 
WHICH MEANS if you have something to share - let me know! I have sent most of the information below to various people on this list but here it is in one place. 
REMINDER to those coming into The Foundry - keep on signing in everytime you are in the building - and please remember to wear your mask(s) in the public spaces. 
STAY SAFE. STAY WARM. STAY HOME (at least this weekend if you are getting snowed in!)
