It seems like every man and his dog turned up at the Tin Can Bay Community and Men’s Shed’s garage sale last month.

Physically, it put us on the map for many locals who were unaware of our location. Consciously, it allowed us to meet and greet new friends and establish networks with local identities and groups.

Financially, it was a huge success for us and for the public too with many bargain buys walking out the door.  Lastly, it was great for morale with huge and rewarding efforts made by shed members and their partners to ensure all facets of the day ran smoothly. A huge thank you to all concerned for making the day so successful!

It is very timely to also acknowledge the following organisations for providing financial and/or physical assistance to us over the last few months: Bay Auto, Beach to Bay Pest Management, Mitre 10, Smiley Electrical, termites@cooloola, The Sleepy Lagoon Darts Club and Wallu Nursery.

So many people have given of their time and expertise to get the Shed where it is today.

It is looking really great and we are almost there. Members are excited to be seeing the finishing touches being put in place and are eagerly anticipating the Shed becoming operational.

If you’d like to see for yourself or to find out more, come along to the next meeting at the Shed (behind Cityfarm) on Saturday, September 14 at 9am or call Bryan Phillips 0420 299 651 or Graham Langdown 0433 062 906 for further information.
