There is a fair bit of news and information in this month’s Newsletter – so sit back, have a coffee (or something more warming) and hopefully share some of the activities our members and associates are enjoying as a result of their connection to this terrific group.
Free Hearing Tests – with a free coffee as well!!
Lunches and Functions
Your group had been busy organising the Lunches and Functions for the year and are delighted to announce that the bookings are now open for a fantastic mid year Cocktail party at Portsea Surf Life Saving Club on 28 July. Thank you Warren for the Flyer below.
We had 35 blokes travel across to Queenscliff on 17 May to enjoy some great food and wine and a tour of the new ferry terminal. It was agreed by all to have been one of our best outings – and great value for money. Thanks to Lino for his work in arranging this event.
We have decided to repeat this event again in October – but this time all associates are also invited. Further details will be announced closer to the date.
- We are still considering the possibility of holding a PNMSA 9 Hole Golf Comp for members and social members and their partners in October or November. The working concept is a 9 hole game (such as Ambrose) in the morning followed by presentations and then lunch at the venue. All members and social members and partners would be invited to come for the lunch so it would enable those who don’t play golf to also enjoy a social day out. Thanks to those who have already expressed interest. Anyone else thinking they may wish to participate, please sms Graham Goudie (GG) on 0419 02 1900.

A request from Terry – our ‘Man About Town’
Bird Box Assembly at St Joseph’s School:
Member Malcolm Barrow recently purchased a very smart vest with our PNMS logo embroidered on it (yes, you can buy one – just ask Secretary John Crough). After a meeting, still wearing his vest, he went to REPCO in Rosebud ans was advised that all Men’s Shed members are entitled to a 10% discount – so there you go!Ramble on the back beach?
We are invited to join the Nepean Conservation Group for their June ramble on Sunday 11 June through the Mornington Peninsula National Park. If you wish to participate, meet the Group at St Paul’s Road, Sorrento, MPNP carpark at 1.00pm. Finish 3.30pm.
They are walking from St Paul’s MPNP carpark to Sorrento Backbeach – they are wanting to combine their ramble with some discussion about the value and qualities of this remarkable place, as well as to highlight some of the issues facing us now and into the immediate future.
One of the Parks Victoria rangers will join the ramble.
A warm welcome to new members Alan Ritson, Jeff Barwick and Sam Digiglio – we look forward to seeing you around the various activities of our Men’s Shed. We also warmly welcome new Social member Gloria Watson who we will meet possibly at our Friday evening sessions at The hangar or other social events coming up soon.
That’s all for now folks.
