To be managed through the Committee. Official response to go back to the person/organisation raising the query:
  • Point Nepean Road Safety Petition – Lino Tarquinio 
(ROB) At this point, It was decided that we could not give unilateral support as the Men’s Shed group but would rather leave it to individual members to sign the petition. 
  • Bay Trail Centenary – Brian Stacey, Rotary
(ROB) In a general sense. we support Rotary in any community involvement on the Peninsula, however, in this case, we need the request to come from Sorrento Rotary for assistance from the Shed and to be specific with exact detail of what is proposed and how we will be involved. We will then put this to our Project Group for further consideration.
New Items: 
Solar for the Hangar: Warren has been looking at options. Details to be shared with the committee.

Tribute Band Night:  Potential fundraiser, Warren has been looking at options.

Promotion of the PNMSA: Update to the promotional video:  Warren to update the original video. General circulation including Sorrento CC, VMSA and AMSA.
