February 2019 shed events

We have a busy week at the shed, please see the following event reminders:

Thursday 14th February 2019 from 10:30am: Jeffery Williams will address our members on the topic of “Defibrillator for Dummies”. Jeffery is a Nurse Administrator & is also involved with the St John Ambulance Service. He will provide a mannequin & a unit. Jeffery is an entertaining character & considering the average age at the Shed it will be an excellent opportunity to familiarise members with our unit.

Thursday 14th February 2019 from 12:00 noon: Shed members sausage sizzle. $3.00 per serve, $1.00 per drinks.

Saturday 16th February 2019 10:00am to 12:00 noon: Monthy Photography Club: Free to all interested members, just turn up on the day. Bring your camera and a laptop to process images and learn a little or share your experiences and images.

Saturday 16th February 2019 2:00pm to 4:00pm: Shed Garage Sale set up only. The sale takes place on Sunday but we need some help with getting things organised the day before. Please bring any last minute donations of items for sale.

Sunday 17th February 2019 8:00am to 2:00 pm: Shed Garage Sale. We still need some volunteers to staff the stall and generally help out with our Garage Sale. Please give Peter a call on 0417 988 415 if you are able to volunteer your time.

VMS Photography Club

By way of introducing more varied activities at VMS we have started our new photography club. It’s a free activity and all shed members who have an interest are encouraged to bring along a camera (and a laptop if you have one to process digital images) and join in. The club will be meeting approximately every 4 weeks on Saturdays at 10am, with the next event scheduled for Saturday February 16th 2019.

This is a very informal group to share ideas and images and to pick up some tips from fellow members. Despite the fact there is no lesson format if you are new to and still learning photography this is an ideal way to learn the basics of photography and to pick up some new skills. If you are a more advanced photographer we welcome your input and hope you can pass on a few of the things you have learned along the way.

The club is lead by shed member Simon Robinson from Perth Light Photography Facebook.com/PerthLight

Garage Sale at the Shed Sunday 17th February 2019

Calling all Members …

As part of our ongoing efforts to raise much needed funds to continue the work of Vincent Men’s Shed, we are planning to hold a Garage Sale at the Shed on Sunday 17th February.

You are able to help by donating your unwanted items for sale, with all monies raised going to the Shed.

The sort of items we are looking for are:

Games & toys
CDs & vinyl records
hand tools
vintage dishes
fishing & camping gear
artwork and jewelry
old wooden furniture
kitchen equipment
copper and brass items and collectibles
books such as cookbooks, craft books and Penguin editions (not old textbooks, Mills & Boon or magazines)

Garage Sale at the Shed

Garage Sale at the Shed

if in doubt, ask one of the event organisers, Bruce Carman and Peter Wasser, whether your item(s) might be suitable

Only items in good condition are required. Things that are broken, damaged or not in good working order simply don’t sell, and are not wanted.

Something like a nice old chest of drawers that needs some work would of course be an exception.

If you are able to donate some items, please reply to this email at vincentmensshed@mensshedswa.org.au or speak with Bruce or Peter or the Day Manager at the Shed.

Remember – your donations are essential to help make this event a success.

So you can just relax and enjoy the night.
