Friends, we’re so very excited to tell you…WE GOT OUR BUILDING!!!!
That’s right, Clever Octopus has secured a big new building with much more space in which we will have a bigger store, more classes, more volunteer groups, and so much more. MORE! MORE!!! (clearly, we’re stoked 🙂 )
There’s not much more poetic than receiving the good-news phone call at 4:30 on a Friday before the (effectively) weeklong holiday for giving thanks to make us think about the folks who have been with us along the way, and we’re so thankful for all the support you’ve provided us.
Starting right away, we’re painting and cleaning and moving things, and we’ll need all the help we can get. Whether that’s you or your friends or your students or your team, we’re hoping you’ll be able to join us for and/or share our upcoming volunteer opportunities – and we’ll have that list ready to go shortly. You’re on this list because we’ve talked recently about the big exciting thing that could not be named, you’ve helped us prepare for this building, you’re a Clever Octopus superfan, and/or you’ve been influential in the long road to this point. Thank you.
We’d love to give you a sneak peek of the new place! Come see us, explore the space-in-progress, and let us know if you have any big things we’ve been promising to take “as soon as we have more space” – so we can plan for their new home.
We’re calling it the Messy Open House – pop in and see what we’re up to on Monday November 25 between 3-5PM. We can chat volunteer opportunities, dreams and plans, and get y’all as excited as we are. You might even be handed a paintbrush!
The address is 2250 S West Temple. Unlike everywhere else you’ve seen us, there’s PLENTY of parking; bike racks coming soon 🙂
Please note: we’ll post the address publicly later; for now, we’ll keep that under wraps (google maps gets weird and causes issues when it finds another address…)
We are so happy to have you on our side. See you soon.
