The Official Opening of The Entrance Men’s Shed was held in the grounds of The Entrance Community Centre on the 27th of November 2009. Here’s some images and impressions captured on the day.
The plaque commemorating the shed opening was unveiled by The Mayor of Wyong Shire, Cr Bob Graham. Thanks to shed members Bob, Chris, Peter and ATB trophies for creation and installation of the plaque.

Two displays from The Entrance Men’s Shed added some visual interest to the official opening. The first of these was Dave Betts’ kayak, the same kayak he paddled from Port Macquarie to The Entrance to raise community awareness of depression.
Likewise the Mobile Men’s Shed was in place to raise awareness of men’s sheds and their role in facilitating men sharing stories, mateship and mutual support.
