6th February 2023 Koorootang Retirement Village

Members of the shed were invited to view the facilities of Koorootang Retirement Village at Mount Martha. We had 20 in attendance including some of the members’ wives. We were given an introduction to what retirement living is about which included details of what is involved in moving from your previous housing to a much smaller environment.

We were shown through one of the empty apartments that was being renovated for a new owner, which also included what costs are involved in moving and selling.

Morning tea was supplied in a large room where they have varying activities including Happy Hour.

26th January 2023 Australia Day Celebration

It was an early start to the day in preparation for Australia Day at the Dromana Foreshore in our usual location. We served egg and bacon rolls at no cost until 10.30 a.m. and then we started selling sausages and onions.

It was one of the busiest days we have had particularly on Australia Day where we made a healthy amount of money to help with funding the new extension to the shed.
