Letter: Repair Cafe gives new life to beloved machinery

Your kindness…will be remembered with every batch of cookies mixed or clothing sewn.

To the editor:

I would like to comment about a recent community event that I had the pleasure of attending, called the Repair Cafe.

This event allowed those of us with things that needed fixing to bring them to Okanagan College last Saturday afternoon and have volunteers take a shot at repairing them, free of charge.

I brought two of my most cherished appliances with me, my mixer and my sewing machine, in the hopes that I could avoid buying new replacements for them. I was so lucky to have a wonderful and talented volunteer named David F. methodically and patiently figure out the problems and fix them for me, while educating me on how they worked.

I am so grateful to the volunteers at the Repair Cafe, especially to David F. Your kindness was so appreciated and will be remembered with every batch of cookies mixed or clothing sewn.
