A Christmas message from President Dick Puttyfoot
“Thank-you to all the members and committee that have worked hard and well with each other throughout the year. To all members and their families I wish you a Happy and Joyful Christmas with another new year of fufillment and happiness.”
Christmas Luncheon — This was held on Wednesday 12th December 2018. We had 42 men, their partners and friends attending. Again Mark Hardidge (Chef de Shed) and his team put together a terrific luncheon. Thanks Mark. Our President Dick Puttyfoot (8th year) gave an overview of the year and thanked the committee for the support. Our resident bush poet Irvin Beeston recited three poems that were very entertaining. Lindsay Ikin donated a plant pot he made for auction. Warwick Mitchell acted as the auctioneer. Thanks Lindsay and Warwick. Thanks to the Mt Beauty Neighbourhood Centre for the use of their hall and kitchen and to the members who helped set up the hall.
Street Christmas Decorations — Last Sunday seven members erected the street Christmas decorations for the Chamber of Commerce. This is the 5th year the Shed has done this. We are paid for the job. Thanks to Campbell Ford (Chamber Rep.) who we liaise with to get the job done. Also thanks to the North East Home Improvement Centre who lend out their mobile scaffolding at no charge. Dismantling will be done mid January. Hope a few different members can assist.
Shed Holiday Dates — Closing on Wednesday 12th Dec 2018 & re-opening Tuesday 15th Jan 2019 (sausage sizzle at 12 noon).
