It was an historic meeting for MSV on Thursday, August 1st.
David F briefed the guys on the fifteen month process and progress on the efforts to develop the presented agreement for Men's Shed Vernon to become affiliated with the Canadian Mental Health Association. All the guys received an understanding of the benefits and the challenges that both organizations will see by combining our strengths to serve one another, and our community better.
The resulting vote was unanimous! Men's Shed Vernon will officially become a program of the CMHA for the next three years. Now the real work begins to open the new doors that this relationship can take us through.
Thanks to Bill A for cooking up some onion smothered hot dogs afterwards to celebrate!
"Lemon Twist" First Mate skiff update.
Well, after 7 months of being challenged every time I came to the Shed, "Lemon Twist" was complete enough to take home for rigging. Thanks to all the guys for making this, larger than expected project a reality. I'm sure that you'll appreciate the extra floor space.
Look, Murray...It Floats!
Taking my grandson and his parents out for a ride made all the hours worthwhile.
It will be a sailboat and a rowboat soon...
Opportunity #2: A local social worker has reached out to us on behalf of a worthy single mom of a challenged child. She needs to complete some partially constructed kitchen and bath renovations. I am pursuing additional information.
So... what do you think? Are these projects that we (or you) would like to be involved in? Bring your opinions and thoughts to coffee time at the Shed.
