On the morning of Wednesday, April 30th, the Hive sent out a call for help to the Paonia community via e-mail and Facebook. We had 35 new chairs in boxes that needed to be assembled for the coworking room and the pile of boxes appeared very daunting. With a promise of local pizza and root beer, over 25 people showed up that evening to help with the task of building the chairs. In less than 90 minutes, all the chairs were built and we were out of food. This was the first of many opportunities to collaborate in the spirit of giving and community-building at the Hive, and it was a tremendous success!
Thank you so much to all of the wonderful people who joined us to help. Special thanks to John and Mary from Back Country Bistro who saved us by preparing a dozen pizzas with less than 3 hours notice when we found out that the local pizzeria was closed for remodeling. You saved us (and the pizzas were awesome)!!! Thanks also go to Revolution Brewing for making a mean handcrafted root beer. It was the perfect fuel to keep those allen wrenches turning.
