Join the Repair Café!
Repair Café Village of Castleton-on-Hudson is a neighborhood initiative that promotes repair as an alternative to tossing things out. The initiators are organizing the Village’s inaugural Repair Café on Saturday, July 15 from 10 AM to 2 PM at the Village Hall, 85 South Main Street. If all goes well, we hope to host Repair Café regularly every two or three months. Residents can bring their broken items to fix them on the spot with the help of voluntary repairers. Repair Café Village of Castleton-on-Hudson could use more handy volunteers in the area. Join us!
Repair Café Village of Castleton-on-Hudson is looking for local residents with different skills who can be present as repair experts during the Repair Café meetings. We are especially looking for people who are handy with:
* clothing / textile * bicycles
* electrical appliances * furniture / wooden objects
And who enjoy sharing their knowledge with their neighbors.
In addition, we are also looking for people who wish to be hosts / hostesses at the meetings, and for volunteers to donate refreshments for the cafe. These volunteers help by providing coffee, tea and baked goods, welcoming visitors and serving as contacts for both visitors and repairers in the Repair Café.
