The Mens’ Shed movement continues to grow in the USA. Honolulu saw the first Shed and now there are several on the mainland. The US Mens Shed Association now has 11 sheds in operation. Check their site here: http://usmenssheds.org/home-page/.

Our local guy and founder, Glenn Sears, is highlighted.
IMPORTANT SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT:
Please note the official address for the Hawaii Mens’ Shed. If there is ever an emergency that requires that 911 is called, this is the address to use for our location. Using this address will get the first responders to our location quickly and without confusion. The address is posted on the wall to the left of the Talk Story Pit. This address can also be used in your GPS program for giving directions to our location.
It was sausage day and meeting day at the Shed on Saturday, April 21.
The guys that were there chatted, moved some tools to a better place and got a lesson on how to safely use a table saw.
Bob Jewell made a couple of new signs for the talk story pit with the area getting a work out at lunch and during our meeting.
Ron drove his bike in and I got him to strike a pose next to the playhouse.
