First Organizational Meeting EVER!

Sunday lasted long, and we all accomplished a great deal for the Trenton Atelier. Extended Members Tim Heath, of HeathHousePro Video, and audio specialist Ken Palmer paid a much-appreciated visit to the TA to film for our upcoming promotional video. Through the process we all gained a greater sense as to what each of our roles is, and what we can offer to the TA.

As we filmed, a group of inspired Trenton youth wandered into our space and we were happy to help them work on their bikes and show them around a bit. We hope to see the youngsters return in the future so we can help them create!

After filming and packing up, we held our first ever organizational meeting. Don't feel threatened if you happened to be unable to make the meeting, as we will be having our second first ever organizational meeting on Sunday, November 14th 2010 from 4pm to 6pm at The Trenton Atelier; 220 Allen Street, Trenton NJ. The Meeting will be broadcast live over Ustream, which will be embedded in this website and posted to Facebook, and recorded, saved and archived on our Facebook fanpage.
