The South Williamstown Community Association

Dear Neighbor,

Saturday, May 14th, can be a day full of earth-friendly activities if you like.  In addition to our Repair Cafe at Sheep Hill in the afternoon, I am passing on information from Bee Friendly Williamstown about Saturday morning cleanup at The Spruces.

WILLIAMSTOWN REPAIR CAFÉ SATURDAY MAY 14 AT SHEEP HILL

Come to Repair Café, co-sponsored by the South Williamstown Community Association and Williamstown Rural Lands at Sheep Hill, 671 Cold Spring Road (Route 7) Saturday afternoon, May 14, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Our volunteer “fixers” include people who can do small electrical repairs (vacuum cleaners, immersion blenders, lamps), wooden furniture repair (chairs, benches, frames), blade sharpening (knives, scissors, small tools), costume jewelry repairs (rhinestone replacement, new clasps), leather repairs, and our ever popular darners, knitters, and sewers.

We will have two computer experts, refreshments, and we are continuing to partner with the BagShare Project to make reusable shopping bags. We’ll have materials and grommet machines to make them. Come and learn how to make a bag. It’s a good activity for older children, and it keeps all kinds of animal feed and barley bags out of the landfill.

Repair Café is free, although donations are accepted. It’s all about helping our neighbors and helping our planet.
