A bunch of blokes in Mooroopna now have a better equipped shed thanks to a donation from a local garden club.
Members of the Mooroopna Men’s Shed are the proud new owners of a $1000 band saw, which is from the Mooroopna and District Garden Club.
Club treasurer Mark Schwarz said members of the men’s shed were grateful for the donation.
‘‘They were over the moon.
Any man’s shed needs a variety of tools,’’ Mr Schwarz said.
He said the garden club organised two trips a year and made a small profit, as well as making money from trading tables and raffles.
‘‘Once we get to a certain amount, we’ll look to give it to a local charity. We do look to support something local.’’
Mr Schwarz said in the time he had been treasurer, the group had handed out about $5000 in donations during a six-year period.
‘‘We are doing well as a club and we like to give something back.’’
He said so far the club had visited Lakes Entrance in autumn and the Hunter Valley in spring.
‘‘We attend flowers shows.
We’re a pretty active club.’’
