The Rotary Club of Wellesley held its eighth Repair Café at the Wellesley Recreation Center on March 7th.  
The Rotary Club of Wellesley held its eighth Repair Café at the Wellesley Recreation Center on March 7th.  Nine coaches and 16 attendees repaired 13 lamps, fixed a ceramic rabbit’s ears, re finished an end table, sharpened knives, fixed a beloved toy, installed a new door switch for a microwave, and encouraged a patron to order new batteries for their power beat ear phones. Jen and Kristen from the Wellesley Library set up a “mobile library station” with lots of DIY and “fix it” books. Everyone had fun and helped keep items out of the landfill.
