What do you do with a broken toaster or lamp? Or with a shirt or blouse with a seam that is ripped out? Bring them to the Bolton Repair Cafe. The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, with help from Bolton Local, is hosting the next Bolton Repair Cafe on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will be held in the cafeteria at the Florence Sawyer School, 100 Mechanic St. The school is located behind the Emerson School, which is on the same driveway/street. Residents of Bolton and surrounding towns are invited.
At the Repair Cafe, everything centers on making repairs. Knowledgeable volunteers will help repair items such as clean mendable clothing, lamps, small appliances, computers and other electronics, bikes, toys, and outdoor power equipment. They can also sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools. You only pay for needed parts. If you know what parts are needed, get them ahead of time and bring them to the Repair Cafe to save time.
Volunteers at the Repair Cafe will look at all items brought in and try to repair them. If the volunteers cannot repair something, they will offer suggestions about where you could go for repairs.
