Projects need some helpers

Aloha and Happy New Year!

The Shed is starting out strong and well for 2020.  

There are a couple of projects that are being started that could use some help.  Visit the Shed on any Wednesday or Saturday to see what you can do to lend a hand in completing the projects or contact the project leader directly via email.

–  CD and LP cabinets:  Contact Steve Pryzbelinski,

Let me know if you have any questions or have projects that you would like to add to the list.

‘Twas a few days before Christmas…

‘Twas a few days before Christmas
    and all through the Shed,
Creatures were preparing a sizzler ahead.

Come Charlie, come Bob, come Tay and John
    On Robert, on Glenn, on Michael and Don.

Come to the Shed, bring what you may
    as it’s pot luck dinner for us today!

Talk story and share everyone’s best,
    Come to the shed and we’ll do the rest.

Our last sizzle is a pot luck bonanza.  Bring your favorite dish, be it pupus, main dish or dessert.

Please know, your dish is not a price of admission. Feel free to just bring yourself. I’m sure there will be enough to share! Merry Christmas!

See you there!!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Jingle Sizzle!!! HO! HO! HO!

Aloha to one and all!

‘Twas the weekend before Christmas
    And through the island,
Decorations are hung with the greatest of care.
The Shed is open and a Holiday Sizzle is in the air.
So, prepare your dishes and appear with good wishes
    On Saturday the 21 of December.
It’s a pot luck day, so be merry and bright,
    not to be there is just not right!
