What do you do with a broken toaster or lamp? Or with a shirt or blouse with a seam that is ripped out? Toss it? No way! Bring them to the Bolton Repair Café. The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, with help from Bolton Local, is hosting the next Bolton Repair Café on Saturday, Sep 29, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Come help us celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Bolton Repair Café. The event will be held in the cafeteria of the Florence Sawyer School, 100 Mechanic Street in Bolton. The school is located behind the Emerson School, which is on the same driveway/street.
Bring your items that need repair, and knowledgeable volunteers will help you try to fix them for free. The volunteers can work on items such as clean mendable clothing, knitted and crocheted items, lamps, small appliances, computers and other electronics, bikes, outdoor power equipment, toys, and jewelry. They can also sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools. You only pay for needed parts. If you know what parts are needed, please get them ahead of time and bring them to the Repair Café to save time.
We will continue our activity for kids at this event. Bring your children or your grandchildren so they can work on taking something apart at the supervised take-apart table to see how it works. Putting things back together and fixing things is not expected.
