A Legacy Gift to Men's Shed Vernon
Ken Cote, and his partner Carol of Vernon, have made a generous and thoughtful donation to Men's Shed.
Ken and Carol recently donated some much needed high quality equipment to the Men's Shed, including a dust collection system a band saw, table saw and other shop items. At Men's Shed, we have been discussing the need for dust control improvement in our facility, so the timing of this donation is ideal.
Ken, along with his partner, Carol, were also instrumental in enabling Men's Shed to recently acquire their quality metal lathe and milling machine, which we all appreciate greatly expands the breadth of our operations.
The equipment came with a lot of unexpected accessories.
Ken worked as a biomedical researcher at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Upon retirement he moved to Pender Island before ultimately moving to Vernon in the early 2000's. Ken is a avid metal and wood worker, and is also an active member of the Spallumcheen Pioneer Power Club where he recently restored a 1950's vintage John Deere 50 tractor.
Thanks again to both of you for selecting Men's Shed Vernon for these gifts. We'll put them to work!
Hmmm... I wonder where will we plug them in?
Before you build a project, you need to visit and talk about it...
Under John Halper, Scott, Jacob, Quinn, Lyle, & Ray have all been lending a hand. Stanchions ( posts that hold the lifelines) are back on, and deck hardware is installed. Lifelines and hardware are on order. Now the winter cover can be modified before the boat is hauled out of the bay. We will finish the job in the spring.
Oh yea, almost forgot...
