Boolarra Men’s Shed – Active in our Community – March 2020

We have finally received our grant from the Department of Health and Human Services to install solar panels on the roof of the Shed. The installation will commence on 9 March 2020.

Window removed from Catholic Church Yinnar for repairs.

I have just received disappointing news that one of our most recent members, Rev. Peter Carter, is leaving our community. Personally, I have found Peter to be a very pleasant person to be around and he will be a loss to the Boolarra Men’s Shed and its members.
LADIES and GENTLEMEN: Would you like to learn basic wood working and/or welding skills? If you are interested in learning new skills please give the writer a call on 5169 6286 to discuss your area/s of interest.
Our hard wood, timber slatted park benches with cast iron ends are continuing to sell like hot cakes so if you are in the market get in quick before you miss out. We do have some in stock and they are an absolute bargain at only $200 each. Also available are custom made coffins for humans, cats and dogs. We also have rough sawn pine slabs $60.00 each and 200mm x 75mm pine sleepers $20.00 each for sale at the Shed.

Stained glass window Catholic Church Yinnar.

We are currently repairing the stained glass window on the front wall of the Catholic Church in main Street Yinnar – see photos. We have also made a number of timber toys for the Yinnar Primary School as well as trophy/awards for use in their classrooms. We also undertook urgent structural repairs to the power box in Centenary Park for the Folk Festival Committee in time for the 2020 Festival.
Monthly BBQs/luncheons at the Shed are continuing to be very well attended, so if you would like to come along and meet us, they are held on the last Monday each month at around 12 noon.
To the males in the Boolarra and district community who have not experienced the camaraderie of the Boolarra Men’s Shed, why don’t you come along on any Monday or Wednesday from 10am to 4pm and have a chat and a cuppa or a soft drink.You might be pleasantly surprised what the Shed and its members hold in store for you.

Vice President.
