Our First Executive Appointment

Only Garry turned up to the Shed Christmas party in a collar & tie. He can be excused this time however as he had just accepted a position as the manager of a retirement village at Marsden in Sydney.
He thanked all the men for their support as his referees.
He even has the executive pose for the camera!
December News.

The Shed will close for the Christmas break on Thursday 17 December and open again for business on Tuesday 5 January 2010.

We plan to start the year off by installing 3 industrial fans in the workshops and a ceiling fan in the Training Room.

We plan to follow this with installation of a purpose designed dust extraction system and then add another bench in the woodwork area.

The metalwork room won't miss out with the metal rack installation and the construction of both a work bench and a welding table. This should then see us start on updating the box trailer we had donated.

We haven't forgotten our community responsibilities and have a huge year ahead of us as we integrate our ADSSI clients, Samaritans, The Cottage in Debra Ann Drive, and a new client The Norah Head Lighthouse!

Have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year

2,222.22 Woolworths Reasons to Smile

Today the Manager of Woolworths Bateau Bay, Brett Goodwin, presented $2,222.22 to Bateau Bay Shed. This money was raised following the month of "Movember" when men from the Shed were invited to hold barbeques,raffles and Chocolate Wheels inside the store for each of the 4 Thursdays of the month.
This has been a great promotion for the Shed and we know our members enjoyed the time they spent working alongside the Woolworths staff.

Thanks Woolworths!

St. George Forever

Brett, the manager at Bateau Bay Woolworths, a die hard St. George fan, receives a framed print of 2 of their star players in action and the dragon logo. Brett has been instrumental in promoting our Shed during "Movember" and we felt he deserved a small token of our appreciation.

Woolworth Staff visit the Shed

Following a very successful promotion during "Movember" 6 men from the Bateau Bay Woolworths store visited the Shed to have a look around and meet the men.

Thanks Woollies!
