Visit by Kelmscott Senior High

As part of their Year 12 curriculum on community organisations, members of Kelmscott Senior High School visited our Shed today. Last year the Chairman delivered a talk at the school, but as their time this year was very limited, this was delivered by the teachers. The visit was organised so they could see for themselves how our Men's Shed operates and how it fits into the community of Roleystone. It was great to see so many young adults taking an interest in an organisation such as ours, and we hope their visit provided them with some useful information.

Raffle Ticket Draw & Presentation

On Monday 3 July we held the draw for the wonderful framed watercolour picture donated by Stephanie Boyle. Our Chairman, Phil along with Wendy of the Roleystone-Karragullen Bendigo Bank officiated, the lucky winner being Annie Clarke of Roleystone. The presentation was also held at the Bank, but as Annie is away in Paris at the moment, Ron her husband, accepted it on her behalf. Our thanks to all those who participated and bought tickets.

Winter Market Day

After a poor showing at our last Market Day, we were very happy with the outcome of our efforts this time. Quite a few of the smaller items were sold, but the sale of a BBQ and a bicycle helped us to raise a total of $426.10 (not sure where the 10 cents came from). Roy managed to raise a further $91 towards the sales of our raffle tickets, so all in all, a very satisfying day.

5th Birthday

This month at our usual Sundowner, we celebrated our 5th birthday. It's hard to believe we have been going this long (it's actually nearly 7 years if you count the time before we had a home!). Ray, John and Colin acted as Chef for the evening, whilst Tony, David, Ian and Roy made sure that the wind hadn't gone off! A great evening.
