November 2: This Old House!
In our unique town of Oakwood most of us find ourselves living in quaint and charming old houses. However, a charming old house sometimes means big problems. Most of us don’t know where to begin on updating, renovating, or even maintaining our old houses which can become overwhelming so we let the paint continue to peel away. Fear no more! We have put together an awesome team of a Contractor, Realtor, and Designer to discuss all of our concerns. What should we do ourselves and what should we leave to the pros will no longer be a question we rely on google for. Come and learn what the market is looking for in renovations, what will be the best investment for your home and safety, while maintaining the charm of an older Oakwood home.
December 7: Green Holidays!
Holidays typically mean a lot of waste for most of us! With all of the big meals, presents, decor, and cold weather coming in, it can be difficult to find materials and resources that keep your footprint small. Join us for a fun evening of hand-made felted holiday decor as we drink cider, enjoy a fire, and hear from local resources on creating a green holiday! Compost Dayton and Green Oakwood will be coming to chat with us about how to do just that! This will be a fun one: take home sustainable gifts, and be on your way to a greener life and greener holiday!
