WINDALE MEN'S SHED CELEBRATION
On 8 July 2010 an official function hosted by CatholicCare was held at the Windale Men’s Shed to acknowledge and celebrate the shed’s growing success. Guest speakers were Joseph McCarthy, CEO CatholicCare Newcastle, Jill Hall, Federal member for Shorthand, Cathy Rowe representing FaHCSIA and Liz McDonald, Project Manager CatholicCare with Kerry Thompson and David Helmers, the two ex project coordinators for the Shed, attending as special guests.
Accolades aplenty were forthcoming regarding the Shed’s growth and success with a number of good (and not so good memories being told about the ‘early days’. A highlight for the day was the Shed’s recognition for a job well done by ex coordinators Kerry and David by presentation of a plaque in appreciation. They have been respectively instrumental in establishment and development of the Windale Shed since 2004 and although they have both moved on to newer pastures, they still continue relationships with the Shed project.
