Vanderhoof Men’s Shed Newsletter

  October 2023

Can you help move pumpkins from the Independent on Friday the 27th @ 9:30 am. 


Everyone’s age today is 2023

Did you know that today the whole world is the same age!

Today is a special day as it only happens once every thousand years

Your age + the year  of your birth for everyone = 2023

It is so strange that even experts can’t explain it!

Check it out and see if it is 2023. It has been waiting 1,000 years for today


It appears that more Mensheds are being established.  The following are currently in the process: Prince Rupert, Cranbrook, Revelstoke, Terrace, Quesnel, Williams Lake, Kamloops, Nelson, Port Alberni, Campbell River and Fort St. John. 


In a recent newsletter from MSABC, President Mike Jennings urged all to get involved in promoting the development of a Menshed in a town that currently does not have a Menshed.

Completed and delivered three 20' x 8' docks complete with side rails to Nechako Valley Secondary School Careers Department.  Docks are located in the area East of McLeod Elementry and the Vanderhoof Pump House.

Students will use the docks as viewing stands to study the ecology of the area.  Darren Carpenter, Careers instructor is spearheading the project.


Several washers and dryers are waiting for parts to arrive and be installed.  Matt will be busier when they arrive. 


Walt has been getting alot of practice on the Kabota.  New snow stops have been installed with the help of the forklift and a couple of pallets to get the installer on the roof.  The same thing was done to assist the new eave trough installer. All the water will now end up in an excavation that will help to increase the level of the Nechako.  The sturgeon will be happy. 


All the old mowers have been moved to the shed for storage over the winter.  With winter coming on, there won't be very much need for a mower.  Snow blowers are next.


The pool table has been getting more use recently due to the advancement of lower temps and snow.  Outdoor activities are at a minimum. 


2024 memberships may be purchased when you get here.  $20/year is a bargain when you can use your member card to pickup something you don't need in our massive inventory of stuff that has been recycled from the landfill.  Thanks to the efforts of Bill & Mrs. McIsaac.  Bill has just got his hip refurbished. 


Stay safe and warm when your out “trick or treating” on halloween.


I was trying to get a photo of a scary face to make a mask for Halloween, but nobody at the Menshed would show his face.  Maybe next year.
