Do you have broken stuff that needs fixing? Do you want to extend the life of an item and keep it out of the landfill? Plan to attend the Sammamish Valley Grange Fix It, Don't Pitch It Clinic, Wednesday, April 4th, from 6:30 - 8 p.m. (a half hour earlier than usual) at the Grange Hall in Woodinville.
Perhaps you have a broken toaster sitting in your garage or a trowel you're not using because of a dull blade. Bring us anything broken or non-operating - your 'can't-throw-it-away' items. Fixers and tinkerers will be on-hand to help diagnose and attempt a repair. We'll work on your garden hand tools, but please no gasoline engines or hazardous materials.
Helping neighbors work together, sharing talents and knowledge, is a true attribute in Grange tradition. And, if you're handy and have fix-it skills, come assist others in determining a repair. We'll have things to fix and we need fixers to fix them!
There will also be an informal discussion with attendees regarding the idea of establishing additional Fix It, Don't Pitch It Clinics, perhaps quarterly. While extending the useful life of at least a few things, these clinics would more importantly be a way to bring our community together for fun events.
In tradition and service to the broader community, the Sammamish Valley Grange, located at 14654 148th Ave. NE, Woodinville, presents monthly programs free to the general public. By working to improve the rural nature of the Sammamish Valley, the Grange shares its mission through educational outreach and neighborly engagement.
