Gun Safety in the Home
When your children spend a night at your friend’s home would you consider asking – are their guns stored safely? Would your children tell you if they saw a gun in the open at their friend’s home?
Human Services and Safety and Chief Nelson are sponsoring a forum on gun safety in the home on Sept. 21 at the Public Safety Center from 7-9. All are invited especially your children.
If you have questions, concerns, topics you want discussed at the forum, please contact Pat

What do you do with a broken toaster or lamp? Or with a shirt or blouse with a seam that is ripped out? Toss it? No way! Bring them to the Bolton Repair Café. The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, with help from Bolton Local, will host the next Bolton Repair Café on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will be held in the cafeteria of the Florence Sawyer School, 100 Mechanic St. in Bolton. (The school is located behind the Emerson School, which is on the same driveway/street.)
Bring items that need repair, and knowledgeable volunteers will help you try to fix them for free. The volunteers can work on items such as clean, mendable clothing; lamps; small appliances; computers and other electronics; bikes; toys; outdoor power equipment; and jewelry. They can also sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools. You only pay for needed parts. If you know what parts are needed, please get them ahead of time and bring them to the Repair Café to save time.
