A dedication ceremony takes place at 1 p.m. for museum’s own Sikorsky SeaKing, which was the recovery plane for the crew of Gemini 4 in 1965 and was also used in the Ron Howard film, Apollo 13. A performance by the Hornet Band begins at noon and guided Apollo 11 Recovery Tours take place at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The Hornet is located at 707 W. Hornet Ave., Alameda. Normal museum hours and admission prices apply. Ample free parking is available across from the pier. The events take place 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. www.uss-hornet.org or (510) 521-8448.

Repair Café

Bring your broken household items and work with repair volunteers to keep your favorite things working and out of scarce landfill. Repair Café doesn’t charge for repairs. If the purchase of repair parts is required, and they are available, you will be asked to pay for them. For convenience, ACE Hardware in Palo Alto is on hand to fetch small parts you may need. The event is 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Museum of American Heritage, 351 Homer Ave. in Palo Alto. http://www.repaircafe-paloalto.org.
