Social networking is great, but to me its true value is to make it easier for people to come together in-person and get things done. A great example of this comes on Sunday at “Mill City Skill Share” during which a number of individuals have volunteered to share a skill with others at no charge. Here’s some information from the Skill Share website:
Want to learn a new skill? Meet your neighbors?
Engage in a creative activity?
On Sunday May 6th, 2012, the first ever Mill City Skill Share will be held in historic Downtown Lowell, MA. Our goal is to share wisdom and knowledge through collaborative learning and connect members of our community in a way like never before! This promises to be a fun free event for all ages that shouldn’t be missed!
Over two dozen awesome workshops will be held from 10-6 at various locations throughout Downtown Lowell.
Registration and refreshments from 9:30-10:30 am at
The Mogan Cultural Center
40 French Street
Free for all ages!
