Hi my name is Josh and I am raising funds for 15 rescued dogs to become Assistance Dogs to support our serving and ex-serving Australian Defence Force members who are dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD)
I am a returned servicemen who served in Afghanistan. I deployed three times over a period of four years and needless to say, this was extremely tough on myself and my young family. After returning from deployment I realised that I was not coping, and after my wife expressed her concerns, I decided to get help. In August 2013 I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as major depression. This sent our world into a spin.
The annual Sweet Valley Sounds event is on again this Saturday 7th February at the Mountain Bike Park above Mt Beauty. The event starts at 11:30am and finishes at 10:30pm.
Like last year the Men’s Shed have again been asked if they can provide supervision between 6:30pm to 10:30pm. The Shed benefits financially by assisting.
We need 8 volunteers (wearing vests) to work in 2 x 2 hour shifts using 4 men per shift. Volunteers can be in attendance the whole time (not just for their shift) if they wish to enjoy the music and entertainment provided (it’s free for us volunteers).
Can you please indicate your availability to Paul L’Huillier by Thursday 5th February. Telephone: 57544554, Mob: 0400 056 247 or Email: <email@example.com>
Please indicate which shift i.e. one or both: Shift #1: — 6:30pm to 8:30pm OR Shift #2: 8:30pm to 10:30pm. First shift will meet at the entrance at 6:15pm for a briefing.
On Sunday morning the organisers would appreciate some extra help in dismantling the facilities. If you can assist please indicate this to Paul L’Huillier. Again, the Shed benefits financially by assisting.
On Tuesday 16th December Eric and Rob (Outdoor School – Bogong maintenance staff) are dismantling the remaining downstair bunks. This is very good news as it means we don’t have to do it.
We need workers for — Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th December meeting at the Scout Hall at 9:30am.
Wednesday is when we are transporting all the bunk sections to the Outdoor School – Bogong to be assembled in the bottom floor rooms. It requires a lot of helpers.
Please let Dick Puttyfoot know (Tel: 5754 1942, Mob: 0417 836 841, Email: <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you can assist on one or both days. If you have already indicated that you can assist please ignore this reminder.
Work on the shed will conclude today (Wednesday 10th December) for 2014.
We will resume again during the week beginning 12th January 2015. Details will be sent out early next year.
Thank you to all the members who have helped us get to the stage we are at now with the building of our shed.
A lot has been achieved and we are well placed to have the shed fully operational in the first part of 2015.
I hope you enjoy the break and the festive season.
