Well, here we are on our way in 2018! Before we close the book on 2017 we would like to express our thanks and appreciation to our sponsors and supporters from here on the Peninsula and further afield in NSW and the ACT. Also to mention of a few of our members – Bill S [Stedy 1], your Treasurer, does a great job when he is here in Umina but when off on his travels he still takes time to fully manage the accounts and payments required etc. A call well beyond the normal. Then Mrs Stedy 2 – each month she races around and procures all the perishables for our monthly BBQ and after a quick but unexpected call from Stedy 1 produced and delivered a cracking lunch for the big team of shedders working to rebuild the sand pit at the School. Thank you Stedy 2. What about the seemingly continuous supply of tea/coffee /biscuits/milk /shop consumables/office supplies etc that is available at the Shed – thanks Bill G. To our Chairman D.P. – whilst having a very full time job, is invariably in the front of the volunteer group for the heavy lifting at night time and weekend BBQ functions and rarely misses the monthly committee meeting, not to mention the leadership and guidance he provides to our Shed – thank you. The nocturnal gardener Fred; the w/end grass cutter, Chopper; the transporter, Merv; Larry, the tidy up man and all the other members who go that extra bit to make the Shed a safe and great place for us all to enjoy. A big thank you on behalf of all our members.
So what’s been happening at your Shed since our last Newsletter – well, Chairman D.P. travelled to Gosford at the request of Eagles Plumbing Supplies and was part of a special presentation at which your Shed received a beautiful cheque, being a share of the proceeds of a special trade Golf Day fund raiser organized by Eagles. A big thank you again to the Eagles business team and management for their support and generosity.
