HRRC looks ahead to 2018 programs
To the Editor:
As we come to the end of another year at Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC), and prepare for our 47th one, I wanted to give our neighbors a report on what we’ve been doing, and what we’re planning for 2018.
HRRC just concluded a series of classes in Old Brooklyn as we teamed with Old Brooklyn Community Development. Suffice it to say that all the participants were jealous of what we do here at our Noble Road offices.
For December, we’ll be doing a couple of classes on painting in Shaker Heights and concluding our first-ever remodeling series. Instead of just focusing on repairs, this series will give participants a chance to envision—and create—a new kitchen. So, even after four decades in existence, we’re still coming up with new ways to help residents enhance their homes.
After the first of the year we also plan to continue creating new and exciting opportunities for our friends in the Heights area as we all try to improve the way our homes look and function. We’ll have more gardening classes in 2018, more of our immensely popular Women’s Home How-To Series, a continuation of our remodeling series, carpet installation classes, Free First Mondays and much more.
If you haven’t been here for one of our workshops yet, the winter months are the perfect time to come. You’ll get a chance to plan all those interior projects you’ve been thinking about and learn the best ways to finish them from our expert instructors. If you have been here, then we’d love to see you again. Bring a friend or two as well, so they can see for themselves what Heights residents have had access to since 1971.
