Repair Café – that band of people who pop into a community offering to repair almost anything – they can’t repair computers or printers is back.  They are inviting people to bring in their broken household appliances which the team does their best to fix free.  All the person with that broken hair drier has to do is pay for any parts.

Next location is Tuesday, July 5th 3-7pm at the Aldershot Outdoor Market, 195 Plains Rd. East.

Burlington has hundreds, maybe even thousands of people who took early retirement or put in their 25 years and stopped punching a clock – and are looking for something to do that appeals to their better selves.

Some serve on committees, others join service clubs and others come up with an idea of their own and look for ways to make it happen.  Hunter Lawson picked up the idea, tweaked it a bit, created a logo and some signs and called people he thought would be interested.  They now meet in different parts of the city every month or so
