Donate your old tools to Wallisch Homestead

WEST MILFORD — The Friends of Wallisch are requesting gently used tools that still have some years left on them, to be given a new life. Come by the Wallisch property on Saturday, June 21, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and drop off the tools and be part of the work group.

The group wants to create a tool bank for its volunteers to use during the one day per month they meet to restore the property. The group needs the tools you would find on a farm or to restore old buildings including:

Garden tools - spades, shovels, stone rakes, hand clippers, loping shears (branch pruners), weedwhackers (the old-school kind without a motor), pitch forks, sledge hammers, post hole diggers, bow saws, spackle buckets and wheelbarrows.

Hand tools - hammers, hand saws, hack saws, screw drivers, wrenches, etc.

Tools that are still serviceable will be put to use at the Homestead. Tools that have to be "retired" may be given another life by being turned into artworks in the craft shop.

Prizes will be awarded for oldest, most unusual and ugliest tools. Donate one tool and receive one ticket for a door prize. Drop off two and get two tickets for a door prize.

So stop by the Wallisch Estate, located on Lincoln Ave., on Saturday June 21.

Any questions? Email us the group at Join them on Facebook at Friends of Wallisch Homestead.
