What’s New

We currently have no public display events scheduled for the rest of 2020, but we are still holding monthly meetings remotely so we can show off what we’re building. See the Upcoming Events page for our meeting schedule and to get a link to join a meeting on the day that it occurs. We’re always excited to meet new members and would love for you to join us.

Entrants into a recent build contest – Zoom vignettes

We will make every effort to keep our schedule here up to date in the event of cancellations due to COVID-19 precautions, but to be sure you receive updates as soon as possible, follow the GtwLUG Facebook page.

Even though we have been unable to put on any shows, Gateway LUG is still looking for ways to give back to the St. Louis community. We’ve recently partnered with Fairy Bricks, a UK-based charity that provides LEGO sets for donation to local hospitals, for sets to distribute to hospitals in the St. Louis metro area.

On August 27, 2020 the club received 3 large cartons of various LEGO sets valued at approximately $1800.00 to give to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.  Julie Gant of the hospital’s Child Life Services accepted the donation the next day at the entrance to the hospital, where the sets will be given to children receiving treatment.

On September 22, 2020 the club distributed 6 additional cartons to Shriners Hospitals for Children – St. Louis and Mercy Hospital St. Louis. Laura Teague, Senior Recreational Therapist from Shriners Child Life Department received the donation at Shriners, and Alberta Zanardi, Manager of The Child Life Department at Mercy, and Chelsea, a Child Life Specialist at both Mercy and Shriners, received the donation at Mercy.

Introduction
