Friday 13th of August 2021, Morayfield.
So much for trying to report weekly. I guess I have been rather busy with the intermittent COVID lockdowns and getting to know the rules each time to determine what we have to do to open the shed and the museum.
July was one of the busiest months I can recall us having at the shed since being there. We finally got to hold our first market day, delayed mainly by whether and the council building our new road and pathways. It turned out to be quite a busy and profitable day. What made it busy was us having two sausage sizzles at Bunnings that week as well, one being the same day as the market, and the other the Monday before. Moodloo Men’s Shed had obtained the sizzle on the Monday before and asked us to provide staff to fill the positions needed, so we did. We had circulated earlier that if other organizations were in this position we would help for a share of the profits, that we the other have a win and we also have a win. We also held our own sizzle at the markets as well, so the onion cutters were extremely busy that week, I know because I am one of them.
We also had a couple of members pass away during this month, which in itself made the month a bit more difficult We have had to come to the realisation that most of the men at the shed are elderly so death is the one thing we must all expect to happen.
