May 6 2021 update:

Effective May 10 2021:

We are working on a next phase partial open for the Shed at Helen’s Acres.

  • The shop area will be open regular hours to a limited number of members at any time.
  • Please limit the people in the shop area to 5 and the lunch room to 3. Outdoor activities will depend on the weather and activities, potentially unlimited numbers. Common sense should prevail.
  • Normal social distance and mask protocols should be maintained
  • The ‘kitchen area’ and coffee pot will not be in use, bring your own water and beverages, lunches.
  • Fresh water, hot and cold, is available, for your own use and protection. Please leave the sink clean and ready for the next person. Only water and soap into the drain as it is not a sanitary sewer.
  • Hand sanitizer is available.
  • The shop equipment and tools should be treated with sanitizing wipes and/or spray during use and at the end of the day.
    • Visitors and clients are welcome, the same guidelines apply.
    • Coffee, conversation, cards, crosswords, casual type activity
    • Members and guests can catch up and see what is happening
    • Masks are mandatory where social distance can not be maintained. There is lots of room to spread out to enjoy cookies, coffee (or tea)
    • Courtesy and consideration should help to build this and allow it to continue during the Covid situation.

Help is needed and appreciated for a number of current projects:

  1. Food for Thought needs some more planters
  2. Helen’s Acres needs a large number of small boxes, design to be developed.
  3. Society of Hope is looking for some specialized benches
  4. Hospice house asked for our help with refinishing some benches

Other projects are likely to come along, especially when the word gets out that we are open again.

 

Some of the work may be in the shop, as much as possible could be outdoors.  Hospice House may be off premises depending on the job to be done.

 

Update March 27 2021:

The Covid situation has made it necessary to lock down and close the Shed to all. There are serious issues which make extra care essential.

The situation will be reviewed at the April meetings.

We will continue the Zoom sessions on Tuesday and Thursday mornings except when regular meetings are planned. watch for emails with the link info.

In the meantime, take care and stay healthy.

November 20, 2020

Due to the latest Covid regulations, the Shed at Mayer Rd will be closed until further notice.

As the Covid limits are going to be in place for an unknown time, we have set up Virtual Shed sessions using Zoom video meetings. A chance to chat with other shed members. If you are interested in joining these informal chat sessions on Tuesday or Thursday at 11:00 AM (PDT), please send an email from the contacts page and we will send you the connection link.
