REPAIRING TO THE CAFE ... Broken toasters, frayed cords and other damaged goods can get a new life at the Repair Cafe this Sunday, Sept. 22. Volunteers help repair the items that people bring in and thereby help keep old items out of the landfill, organizers said. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Museum of American Heritage, 351 Homer Ave., Palo Alto.
HARVEST TIME ... Family fun and plenty of good eating will take place at the 47th Annual Harvest Festival in Midtown Palo Alto on Sept. 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., event organizers say. The free festival, which will be held at the Palo Alto Friends Meeting, 957 Colorado Ave., will feature live music, food, a huge used-book sale and a large rummage sale.
MATH WIZARDS ... Two enterprising fifth-graders, Kiran Garewal and Avery Coleman, have started a math-tutoring class for first- and second-graders. A free demonstration class will take place in Mountain View on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 4 to 4:45 p.m. The class will start with a math game, then students will work on a challenging problem related to the game. Finally, kids will go to a nearby park to play. An adult will be present. Classes, $5 each, occur at the teachers' homes in Midtown Palo Alto and Mountain View.
