Gladstone Men’s Shed Inc. has been established in Gladstone for over 7 years and is affiliated with both the Australian Men’s Shed Association and the Queensland Men’s Shed Association. Our new building at 18 Moura Crs, Barney Point, has been equipped for our metal and wood work activities to resume on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8am to 12pm, with the shed opening for the same hours on Wednesday morning to work on your own projects as no activities will be offered by the coordinators.

November is fast coming to a close and what a month – the Energy Super and the Mental Wellbeing presentations were held mid-month, whilst they were aimed at subjects we don’t always want to know about, it was gratifying to help the members who wanted to listen and learn. This is also the month of 5 cruise ships visiting our city and we have committed to attend every market at East Shores, the profits may be small but the contacts we make there with the public are extremely valuable.
Unfortunately we are running a few weeks late with our quarterly General Meeting and the plan is to squeeze it in on Tuesday 3rd December. We will also hold a Special Meeting the same day to confirm the changes from the review of our Constitution and of course all this will be preceded with the customary sausage sizzle. Speaking of BBQs we also have a big effort coming up for the drinks and BBQ stall for St John’s Christmas Carols down at the marina stage on Wednesday 27th November. We have certainly developed a special relationship with St Johns over the years.
That will then leave our Christmas Party for Saturday 7th December at the Darts Club, it is highly subsidised by our year’s activities to be only $20 per person and we will need names and payment by Tuesday 3rd. The Shed will close for the festive season on Thursday 12th December, members can complete a clean-up and cyclone preparation at 8am and we will then invite partners in for morning tea at 10am and a final BBQ lunch for the year. Shed calendars are in stock for 2020 and on sale for $10 each.
