Town to Hold Fix-It Clinic November 11
Don’t throw away that lamp with the damaged cord. As part of its program to reduce waste, the Town of Geneva will hold its first Fix-it Clinic on Saturday, November 11, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, in the Town Highway Garage at 32 White Springs Road. According to Supervisor Mark Venuti, “Fix-it Clinics are sprouting up around the country with great success, so we thought we would try one here.” Volunteers will do their best to make repairs to household items during the event, or within one week for items that need more time or materials not at hand. The event is open to all Town residents free of charge.
The types of repairs volunteers will be prepared to attempt include: sewing damaged clothing and upholstery; gluing or otherwise fastening damaged wooden items like furniture; repairing lamps and small appliances; electrical repairs; jewelry repairs; trouble-shooting, upgrading or reconfiguring electronic devices; and repairing toys.
Venuti acknowledged November 11 is Veterans Day but the holiday is Friday, Nov. 10. “We thought a morning community-building event like this would fit well with a day honoring veterans.”
For more information, to inquire about becoming a volunteer or whether the item you need repaired is appropriate for the clinic, contact Town Supervisor Mark Venuti at 315-789-3922 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
