Men's Shed Vernon (MSV) and the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Vernon office have teamed up in a three year collaboration. MSV has now become a volunteer program of CMHA Vernon.
Men's Shed Vernon will be better equipped to deliver well being services and information to our guys. That is our mission, after all.
We will be able to accept donations and issue receipts according to CRA rules through CMHA.
CMHA will provide administration services and guidance. This gives our donors confidence in the integrity of our best practices.
What Stays The Same?
Men's Shed Vernon will continue to be an autonomous group of guys driven by our Mission and Vision Statements. That is the very essential ingredient that made us an attractive partner for CMHA in the first place. Keep on doing what you're doing guys!
Kal Rotary Fall Cleanup at Highway 97 Lookout
"You can't do it like that...let me help".
Phil R should have known he was in trouble there and then. He brought in a rickety antique table for a "bit of tightening and glue".
Well, the next thing you knew, in less time than it takes to number the pieces, mallets were flying, and there was only an old pile of sticks left. No problem, Phil. It'll be better than new when you're done!

Phil R's Pickleball Project Update
Phil worked with our guys to build three podium boxes for their club's big tournament.
Turns out, that Phil got to USE the podium as well as build it.
Phil had one more hurdle after the tournament was over. The club wanted the boxes to be nesting for storage. A little tweaking was required.
The icing on the cake was the generous donation to Men's Shed Vernon for our efforts. Outstanding, Phil!
Lemon Twist Skiff - Epilogue
Putting a wrap on a project is important. Closure allows us to move on to the next chapter, as in sailing after building.
Then...I took my "Brown Eyed Girl" for a sail on Kal Lake. She liked it too! Then...
I LIKE IT TOO!
Oh Yeah... back to closure. I made a Spark record of the whole build process for posterity, ...and to remind me to think twice before I do THAT again! It's called "First Mate Skiff Build - 7 Months In 7 Minutes".
That's A Wrap!
