Community Yard Sale--October 1, 2022
We'll be holding a Community Yard Sale at Manor Farm on Saturday October 1 from 10 am to 4 pm. For a donation of $20 you can have a 10'x10' space to sell your unwanted stuff. If you love garage/yard sales, this is for you! Space reservation flyer will be posted here soon.

Repair Café September 10

Next Repair Café will be Saturday September 10 at the Comsewogue Public Library. Mark your calendar. Save your broken stuff.

We always need more repair coaches--if you're good at fixing things, please let us know. We need someone who can work on jewelry. We are looking for people who can 'heal' stuffed animals or fix clothing. We'd love to have someone do on-site lessons on sewing on a button or darning socks or other simple DIY stuff. Are you a mental health professional who'd like to help "fix" people and can be a good listener for people who need to just talk? Are you good with computers? Good with fixing electronic stuff? Good at repairing furniture or miscellaneous items?
