Thursday April 3, 6-8 pm at Pakit, 903 SE Armour Rd

Join us at Pakit with your broken stuff! We’ll have volunteers on hand to repair your small appliances, general household goods, some jewelry, light bike repair, fabric garments, clothes needing hand sewn mending or patches, and outdoor gear requiring heavy duty sewing.  People are welcome to come anytime in the 6-8pm time frame to get things fixed.

 

Bring potential replacement parts and/or cash to purchase, patience and a DIY attitude! El Sancho will be serving up yummy tacos for purchase.

Art of Recycling, Rethink Waste Community Youth Art Project

See the culmination of different youth groups and classrooms’ work as they repurposed discarded, leftover and trash items into a community reclaimed art project to encourage people to Rethink Waste. The Art of Recycling has been on display throughout Central Oregon and is now available for schools, businesses and organizations to set up temporarily to highlight their waste reduction efforts.
