Major Shed News
Free Health Checks as part of the ‘Spanner in the Works’ program* will be held on Wednesday 29th March starting at 10:00 am (BBQ Lunch at 12:30 pm – gold coin donation) and finishing at 2:30 pm. The sessions will be held in the Alex McCullough Hall. Their will be three health professionals on hand and there will be three appointments per half hour. The Check-Up will thus cater for 24 members with a half hour break for the BBQ lunch.
This approach to assessing men’s health has been developed for members of Men’s Sheds. It is different to the checkups that are undertaken by your GP. Experience of Spanner in the Works at other Sheds has been very positive and your involvement is highly recommended.
Bookings are essential and it’s ‘first in best dressed’. To book your place — Contact the secretary: Email: <email@example.com> or Mobile: 0428 500 123 or place your name on the list at the Shed by Monday 27th March.

Bunk Building — The Shed has again been approached by the Outdoor School Bogong to build 12 bunks. In 2014 we built 31 bunks for the school using the Scout Hall as the workshop. We didn’t have a Shed then. It is anticipated that this will commence Tuesday 21st March and will involve the whole Shed. The Shed will open an extra day per week (Thursday) to get the project completed. If you wish to be involved please let the secretary know. <firstname.lastname@example.org> or put your name on the whiteboard in the recreation room.
