THE Australian Men’s Shed Association is celebrating 30 years of men’s sheds in Australia, and the Safety Beach Dromana Men’s Shed is hosting “the shedder’s big breakfast” on Wednesday 23 August from 8am to midday.
The men’s shed hosted successful pre-COVID big breakfasts in 2018 and 2019.
Secretary Denis McKeegan said it had been “quite a task” to organise and coordinate trade and general interest displays, musical entertainment, with a side-serving of health information.
He said those attending the breakfast should take gold coins to exchange for an egg and bacon roll and barista coffee with a barbecue to follow.
With just one week to go there were 25 spaces booked with a variety of different displays associated with men’s sheds. There will be special interest speakers and a guest speaker.
Organisers are hoping to attract about 200 shedders and members of the public.
McKeegan said the main priority of a men’s shed was to provide a range of activities, programs and services, involving community projects that focussed on men’s health and wellbeing, comradeship and support.
The breakfast will be at the Dromana Men’s Shed, 75 Pier Street, Dromana. Details email: email@example.com
