Mental Health Expo 2018

Members of TMS played their part in the annual Mental Health Expo held in Garema Place. Using our recently outfitted BBQ trailer the team served sausages to members of the public as well as other stall holders to great acclaim!

Well done to everyone who participated.

 

Tour of Limelight Cinema

Michael Singh, Manager of Limelight Cinema in Tuggeranong gave Members a tour of the complex today. We learned how a modern digital theatre operates from the public facing side as well as the mysteries of the projection rooms.

Sausages and Hardware!

Some of the Members of TMS who kept the school holiday shoppers at Bunnings fed with sausage sandwiches and drinks. Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time to help raise funds for the Shed.

Outhouse completed!

We actually do have indoor plumbing at the Shed but in light of a request by the Continence Foundation for a prop to use at their upcoming Expo the lads in the workshop produced this marvel of engineering!

 

Well done Geoff and the team.

 

May’s Fishy Talk

This month we are very fortunate to be hearing from Dr Alex Ritchie who helped excavate and classify the world’s largest finds of Devonian fish fossils. The dig at Canowindra in NSW lead to the establishment of a huge body of scientific work and the creation of the Age of Fishes Museum to display it all.
 
Alex will be speaking at the Shed from 10am next Tuesday the 15th of May.

Forum at the Assembly

Last week the TMS, represented by President Keith Gilby and Acting Secretary Graham Anderson, attended a Mens Shed Forum hosted by the ACT Legislative Assembly. The Forum was an initiative of AMSA (was it???) and gave Sheds across the Territory the chance to meet with and talk to our local representatives.

MLA Nicole Lawler commented that the Forum was a great succes and supported the idea of an ongoing working party to address the issues raised. TMS is looking forward to contributing to this process to advance the cause of Mens Sheds and their members in our local region.
