A Look Back at 2017

By Robert Herrera

This is the time of year when I reflect on the experiences of the last year and look forward to what’s ahead. As I look back, I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for all the support and love we’ve received from you. Our members, friends and supporters are what make me excited to start my day every morning and to keep finding new opportunities for how The Mill can best serve our community.

It has definitely been a busy year for all of us here. When we kicked off 2016, we were expanding into our second phase of construction. Now we’ve completed the entire floor and have filled almost every office. But The Mill hasn’t just grown in space but in the richness of our community as well. We’ve welcomed dozens of new members, including nonprofits, law firms and even a brewery! We’ve added a set of mediation suites to better serve our legal community. Zip Code Wilmington has moved in which has brought a new level of excitement and vibrancy to the space. I’m excited to see our staff grow as well, welcoming Tynisha Lomax, Megan Olson, and Joey Galvis to the team.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that The Mill is more than just a coworking space, but 2017 marked a few significant firsts for us. In October, we hosted our first wedding reception. Last month we hosted our first live music event with the Mattson 2 thanks to our friends at House Industries. And in less than two weeks, we’re hosting our annual INtheSpirit Christmas party with InWilmington, bringing together our members and friends to not only have a great time but help local families in need.

As 2017 wraps up and I reflect on the year, I want to let our community know how thankful I am. You are what makes The Mill special. I’m excited by what we have in store for next year and can’t wait to share it with you.

Thank you for taking this journey with us. Here’s to an even better 2018!
