Fix It, Don’t Nix It

Repair cafes in Beacon, Garrison

Repair Cafes will be held in Beacon and Garrison over the next two weekends at which volunteers restore and repair broken items such as bikes, small appliances, china, knits and fabrics to keep them from ending up in a landfill. The Beacon event will be held at the Recreation Center from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, and the Garrison event at the Desmond-Fish Library on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
