September offerings from HRRC
Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC) will be hosting two special educational opportunities this month for those looking to learn how to make home repairs with their own hands.
First, the Electricity Basics and Electrical Repairs: Home How-To for Women Series will run for six consecutive Wednesdays, 7–9 p.m., beginning Sept. 4. Those attending will learn all the basics about home electrical work, including wiring, switches, outlets, lamp repair, circuits and more, while using the same tools the professionals use. After this series, participants won’t be in the dark about how electricity works in their homes!
Second, HRRC is offering a power tools workshop on Thursday, Sept. 12, 7–9 p.m. This class is especially helpful for beginners and for those looking to brush up on their tool usage. You’ll get to try your hands (safely) at working with miter, circular, and reciprocating saws, as well as cordless drills, angle grinders, nail guns and more.
Both the electrical series and the power tools workshop will be held at HRRC, 2520 Noble Road. The cost for the electrical series is $150, and the charge for the power tools workshop will be $25. Discounted rates are available for those eligible; fill out the discount application form at www.hrrc-ch.org.
