Rotarians donate a sander to Men’s Shed

Hot on the heels of the official opening of the Men’s Shed, Narooma Rotarians donated $1,300 to Narooma Men’s Shed to purchase an industrial grade sander for the Wood Working Shed.

Narooma Rotary President Ange Ulrichsen dropped by recently to present the cheque to Men’s Shed President Bernie Perrett and Project Manager Wal Sheehan.

“It was wonderful to see their gratitude,” Ms Ulrichsen said. “The money was part of the proceeds from the Rotary Australia Day Duck Race.”

Mr Perrett said their old sander was “aged” and needed bearings replaced, and there was no money coming in.

“One member Rick Hain offered his industrial grade 600mm sander to the Shed at a greatly reduced rate,” Mr Perrett said. “He thought it was really just marking time at his home while he was enjoying working at the Men’s Shed.

“He thought it would be put to better use here. It can put big lengths through for cutting boards and tables.”

Ms Ulrichsen was shown where the new sander was going. Since the photo, the sander has been installed.

Narooma Rotarians will check it out during a vocational visit to the Men’s Shed at a date to be arranged.
