Visit us on Saturday, June 15, 2019, and see what we have available. Handmade items made by the talented hands of Honolulu Mens’ Shed members. We have some hats and T-shirt also.
The First Unitarian Church of Honolulu made a donation from their March collections to the Shed. Rev. T.J. Fitzgerald hands over the donation to Treasurer Randy Wong during T.J.’s visit last Saturday.
The Shed had two great Saturdays, May 4 and May 11. Each day had visitors from our brother sheds in Australia. It was interesting to say the least, to hear how the sheds were started and how they have flourished. The enthusiasm for the sheds in Australia is high and they are well attended. The overriding aspect of these sheds was how all of their health is better and how they have a happier life style with the shed in their life. The fact that these men made an effort to visit our shed here in Honolulu was a testimony to how sheds have a positive effect on senior men. We, as members of the first shed in the USA, should be proud of what we have accomplished. This is just the beginning!
The good news is that their have been several projects underway and quite a few donations made to the shed. Now we need to do some clean-up and rearranging. Parking has been a new issue since Honolulu’s finest has warned the Shed about parking in restricted areas. This is especially a problem on Wednesdays (Saturdays we can park at the DHX area). So, to gain some indoor parking and to clean-up the donation area, this Saturday, May 11th, is clean-up day. If you have some time, please visit the shed and see how you can help. With some extra hands we can get things done quickly. Mahalo!
The SAW STOP, an amazing tool for our Shed, is in place, connected and ready for your project. The capabilities of this saw are available to our members from novice to expert. Remember, the Shed is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Bring your project or help someone else with theirs. See you at the Shed!
Join us at the Shed for the monthly Sausage Sizzle. Come find out what’s happening at the Shed with projects and our grant application.
The children’s playhouse, one of the Honolulu Mens’ Shed premier projects, was delivered to its home on Saturday, February 11, 2019. The Playhouse now sits on the campus of the Mary, Star of the Sea School in Kahala.
The Shed sends a heartfelt thanks to Home Depot for the donation of the truck we used to make the delivery. The playhouse was dismantled, loaded onto the Home Depot truck, and transported to Mary, Star of the Sea school where it was re-assembled.
