Women are making most of the car maintenance decisions for their homes so it stands to reason that women should know a thing or two about their cars. On Saturday, November 14th from 12-2pm, Full Circle Service Center will host its 1st Women and Wheels Car Care Clinic. Mechanics will give basic car care tips as well as familiarizing attendees with what's underneath the hood of a car. This will be a hands-on clinic addressing:

Mechanics will also be able to answer maintenance questions from attendees. There will be light refreshments served. RSVP at rsvp@vehiclesforchange.org.
