Last Wednesday we had 59 people attend the Annual Christmas Luncheon. This is the second year it has been held at the Alex McCullough Hall and we thank the Neighbourhood Centre for letting us use it and their well fitted out kitchen.
Our Chef de Shed Mark Hardidge had the food ordering and preparation well in hand. His helpers of Maureen Hardidge, Rod Hyde and Kerrie gave great support. The set-up team was on hand early to prepare the Hall. Thanks to all the assisted then and also for the clean-up at the end.
Our resident Bush Poet, Irvin Beeston, entertained us with a recital of four poems. Irvin’s poems are now a fixture of most functions the Shed organises. Thanks Irvin.
Warwick Mitchell made a beautiful coffee table of Alpine Ash which was auctioned off. Thanks Warwick.
Elene Wood made a beautiful Cake in the shape of our Men’s Shed. She put hours into the design and preparation. Thanks Elene. Fantastic. Elene has a cake making business and if you are after one for any occasion give her a call Mob: 0409 6753 192.
