BBQ – Friday 16th April
April BBQ Friday 16th April — the function starts at 11:30 am for a sit-down lunch at 12 noon. The cost is $7.00. Please bring the correct money. Feel free to bring a friend and introduce them to the Men’s Shed.
Currently the Men’s Shed is involved in three fundraising activities.
- West Peak Hotel Raffles — the Shed is offered this opportunity every couple of months and is a very successful fundraising event.
- Football/Netball Gate Raffles — the Shed has been collecting the gate entry money for the Dederang Mt Beauty Football & Netball Club’s home games for six years. The Shed sells raffle tickets for a trailer load of wood or a $150.00 Bunnings voucher and that is how we raise funds. This season we are only collecting for the four Mt Beauty home games. The other five are held at Dederang. The coordinator Dick Puttyfoot is always looking for volunteers to assist. If you can, please call him for details – mobile: 0417 836 841.
- Parking for the Mt Beauty Bike Club’s Enduro Event Sunday 18th April — the Shed will be parking cars for 4.5 hrs on this day and in return we receive a gold coin donation from each car.
