Please come along for this most generous action.

End of Year Newsletter 2016

Wednesday the 7th of December we held our Christmas Party again at the Thermal Springs, Hastings. A simple Barbeque was had by all and special treats such as pavlova and brandy snaps to follow.
Thursday the 8th was the last woodworking day for the year.
The ladies have one more Wednesday the 14th to go before closing for the year. We will reopen on the first Wednesday and Thursday of January 2017.
A brief photo session will be held at the workshop on the 15th of December to take possession of the building from the Far South Community Association. A time has not been set at this time but I will advise when I know.
We signed the lease with Huon Valley Council last Monday.
I am currently making a submission for round 14 of the AMSA shed development program.
I am requesting funds for 5 wall cupboards and 5 floor cupboards to go in the Arts and Crafts section along the wall where the peg board is currently.
Further I am requesting a TV /DVD as well.
Additional to these items is a request for funds to install a decent hot water system. This will be a 50 litre unit installed in its original place in the ladies toilet. Hopefully we can have hot water on demand in future.
I’m on light duties for the foreseeable future after my heart attack.
This means I am delegating much of my duties to others where appropriate. The workshop does not just happen. It takes some effort and forethought to continue without input. Someone has to open up, put the signs out, supervise activities, make and set up tasks to amuse and entertain, order replacement items, clean up afterwards, ensure there is coffee, tea, milk, sugar and even toilet paper are available.
As an active member of the workshop, I ask that you consider this and put your hand up to take on some of these duties rather than allow the few to do it day in day out. We all enjoy the benefits of the workshop. We should all do our bit to ensure the load is distributed evenly.
Both Mary and I wish all our members and friends a happy and safe holiday season.
