The Warwick Valley Community Center will turn into a Haunted School House

Wickham Works, with the help of the high school Interact Club are turning the WV Community Center into a scarefest. Sat, Oct. 29Sun, Oct. 30 6 - 10pm, $5 (fundraiser for the center), under 12 with adult, advised. 

The center will revert back to its beginnings (it was built in 1924 as a school house), but with a scary twist. Event-goers will be "welcomed" by zombies, "teachers" and others prepared to add plenty of fright to their night.
Wickham Works, a non-profit group of artists, musicians and others, has worked with the the Warwick Valley High School's Interact Club, to present the fund-raiser for the center. The center's Youth Leadership Team and Acting Out Playhouse are also involved.
The scarefest will take place on Oct. 29 and 30 from 6 to 10 p.m.at 11 Hamilton Ave. in Warwick. Admission is $5 and it's advised that children under 12 be accompanied by a parent.
Wickham Works also puts on Doc Fry Sessions, concerts held at the center on most Fridays for all ages. Money raised there is going toward the creation of rehearsal space at the center. The group's goal is to provide a work space and materials where both new and experienced "makers" can learn, collaborate, offer workshops and spark new business opportunities.The group works with people of all ages.
For more information about the Haunted School House, call 845-986-6422.

Sustainable Warwick and the Community Center are working to launch a Repair Café -- a free community meeting place to bring a “beloved but broken” item to get fixed  “Repair Coaches”—men and women with significant skills — make the repair while you watch…or help.  A lot of stuff gets fixed.  People leave very happy.
But we need at least 10 repair coaches to begin the venture in November. Are you, or someone you know, interested in helping others fix things? If so, contact Elizabeth Knight at eknight@teawithfriends.com or 845-544-1056. Once it starts up, the Café will be held on a Saturday every other month.
We're looking for people who have significant repair skills. Some run their own business and this is a way to get better known. Some are retired -- and like to take stuff apart when they were kids. A good Repair Coach is a good listener, a curious troubleshooter and wants to help make the repair -- but won't be frustrated if it's unreasonable or impossible.
What gets repaired? The top item is lamps (lamp parts are available “at cost”).  No.2 are vacuum cleaners. Beyond that, anything:mechanical and electrical; electronic and digital; clothing and textiles; things made of wood; jewelry; dolls and stuffed animals, Tool and knife sharpening too.
If it’s broken, bring it.
Repair Café extends the life of stuff you care about and keeps fixable stuff out of the landfill.  
The idea was born in Amsterdam in 2009 and has spread all across the U.S.  We have Repair Cafes in seven mid-Hudson towns: Beacon, New Paltz, Rosendale, Gardiner, Kingston, Rhinebeck and Poughkeepsie -- but none in Orange County. Times and locations are on www.repaircafehv.org.
Free coffee and tea are planned. Baked treats and fruit are for sale.


Doc Fry Sessions are now being held on most Fridays at the Warwick Valley Community Center. The next one is planned for Oct 28th  from 7 to 10 p.m.
The Sessions are co-sponsored by the Center and Wickham Works, a creative local group of mainly artists and musicians. Proceeds will go to turning a Center room into rehearsal space that will be available for area musicians.

The concerts feature a wide assortment of solo artists and bands, All ages are invited to enjoy the music and the Maker's Space where you can make posters, badges and enjoy other creative outlets. The concerts are alcohol and drug free."
