The Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, with help from Bolton Local, will hold the next Bolton Repair Café on Saturday, Jan. 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will be held at a new location, the cafeteria at the Florence Sawyer School, 100 Mechanic St. in Bolton. The school is located behind the Emerson School, which is on the same driveway/street.
Guests are invited to bring items that need repair, and knowledgeable volunteers will try to fix them for free. The volunteers can work on items such as mendable clothing, lamps, small appliances, computers and other electronics, bikes, toys, and jewelry. They can also sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools. Guests pay only for needed parts. We cannot work on outdoor power equipment at this event due to the winter weather. (Please bring those items to our spring or fall event.) Guests who know what parts are needed are asked to get them ahead of time and bring them to the Repair Café to save time. For more information, contact Ray Pfau at 978-779-5545 or, or visit

Gardeners can support the Bolton Community Garden and get some fantastic seeds by ordering 2016 garden seeds from Fedco Seeds in Maine as part of the Garden’s group seed order. Bolton Local’s annual group order gives participants a 10 percent discount off Fedco’s already low prices on many organic, but otherwise non-GMO vegetable, herb and flower seeds, with no shipping charges. Anyone who lives in Bolton or neighboring towns is welcome to participate in this group order. A pick-up date time will be set up once the seeds are available.

Orders can be placed online starting now at When checking out, choose “Part of a group” as your shipping option. You will need to enter the Group Name as Bolton Community Garden and the Group Order Number as 99002. Use your own address and phone number for the contact information. Checks should be made payable to “Bolton Local” for the amount of your order less 10 percent. (Make sure your check has your email address and a phone number so we can contact you when the order is received.) Send the check to BCG, c/o David Velten, 67 Green Rd., Bolton, MA 01740. Deadline for ordering is Sunday, Feb. 7; checks must be received by Wednesday, Feb. 10.
