OK, I know its bee a couple of weeks and I promised you all a reminder.
Men's Shed Saturday working bee is back!
So come along and see what has been achieved during the break. All the walls have been painted, although Gordon is going to start building the mezzanine which will create some more walls that will need painting. The street lights have been moved, more building stuff has been delivered (come and see I'm not telling you everything here).
Wednesday working bee will continue, were not stopping just because Saturdays are back!
Mark has been asked to distribute the following for those interested, its all allying with other local community groups.
I am seeking expressions of interest from Mens Shedders over the age of 60 to undertake a free introductory pottery course to be conducted by the Canberra Potters Society at the Watson Arts Centre.
As background, the Giralang-Kaleen Men’s Shed was fortunate to be awarded a $5000 grant to put some blokes from our Shed through a Pottery Course at Canberra Potters Society. The first group of blokes have completed a seven week introductory course and I am organising the next course, to be conducted over 7 weeks from this current school term- dates tbc but between 21 Oct to 14 Dec or thereabouts. We will also be arranging a course during first term 2014 Feb- March 2014.
We are a bit short on numbers so I am seeking expressions of interest from blokes aged over 60 to undertake the course during October to Dec (dates tbc) and also for Feb- March 2014.
I am not sure on numbers needed yet but possibly 5 for the first course Oct to Dec and up to 7 for the course from Feb-March 2014.
The commitment is to be available for about three hours on one day per week over 7 weeks. The day/time is to be determined by the blokes on the course.
If you could pass this around to the blokes in your shed- perhaps you could coordinate a response, that would be great. I would need the blokes to get back to me fairly quickly if they want to be on the October course- note though that we haven't organised a start date yet so there is some flexibility there.
If anyone is interested could you ask them to get back to me,
