2023 was a record year for forest fires in Canada. Andy Tamas realised that many children had lost their toys and his Men's Shed could help. Here is a short CTV piece about the project.
Approximately every month members of MSABC have a virtual meeting to catch up with Shed activities across the province, ask questions and generally offer support and encouragement to each other.
At our last virtual gathering Dr. John Ogrodniczuk, a Professor of Psychiatry, Director of the UBC Psychotherapy Program and Founder of HeadsUpGuys, a leading global resource for supporting men with depression, was invited to talk about Men's Suicide and Depression and what to do about it.
Then Sam Tutanauk shared with us the work he and his team are doing in Nunavut.
Our 'shed space' has been found! We are no longer 'Address Challenged'!
1,000 sq. ft., 110 & 220 power, kitchen, bathroom, indoor lounge, outdoor patio, lush gardens, no charge for rent or hydro. Luck has rained upon us.....probably from a comment we created on Facebook's Langley Community Page. Cleanup and planning is underway. A grant might be in our future but fun, work and friendship is here....Now.
Lots more to come. Stay tuned.
