The Council on Aging’s Fix-It Shop reopened on September 7; the hours are Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 am to noon.
Fix-It Shop volunteers repair small appliances, lamps, vacuums, radios, children’s toys, etc. They sharpen knives, scissors, and garden clippers. They glue vases, statues, and wooden furniture back together. And, their rates are reasonable: they replace watch batteries for $5.00.
The shop is open to people of any age and from any town. The volunteers are always looking for things to do, so consider repair instead of replacement and do the environment a favor.
