Mayor Berry’s bot garage

Hey DW here, just 3 short days away from Maker Expo! Last night, Ravi and I checked in on Kitchener Mayor Berry Vrbanovic’s makeshift robot garage at Kitchener City Hall. It is right in this very place that the Expo is happening, Saturday September 19 from 10am to 6pm. Free-no-pay.

We’ve got the mayors of Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge battling borrowed bots at 2:30pm, so come early and stay late. Tons of stuff to do for makers of all sizes. Roll up your sleeves like Mayor Vrbanovic and get involved. History is made by those who show up and engage. We are all makers. This is Waterloo Region.

Gotta give another big shout out to the City of Kitchener for supporting Maker Expo. You’re one of a kind. And thanks to you Mayor Vrbanovic for helping us promote this show on which we’ve worked so hard to deliver for Waterloo Region.

A short break and then back at it.

See you Saturday at Kitchener City Hall.
