First Aid can save lives

Aloha everyone:

One of the safety guidlines we try to live by at the shed is to always have a first aid person on the premises.  About 20 of the members have taken a first aid course a couple of years ago and it’s now time to review what was learned.  

For those that have taken the course in the past and need a review and to give new members an opportunity to learn first aid, the Shed will be scheduling a first aid course within the next few weeks.

To be sure we have enough attendees, would those of you who would be interested in attending the course please reply to this email so that we have an idea of how many to accomodate.  For now there is no fee but that may change.  If a fee is reqiured you will be notified in advance.

Please let me know your interest as soon as possible so we can schedule the class. Use the Contact Us tab on the home page to send your email.



Some due and some did

Aloha members:

Super Bowl and Ground Hog Day are in the past.  We’ll let those involved get ready for next year.

We at the Shed are working on this year.

So, if you have not paid your dues ($50/year, the best bargain in Honolulu acccording to some of us) please make arrangements to pay them.  You can pay online here:

Or, send your check here:

Or, deliver your check or cash in person at the Shed!

See you at the Shed!


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,

–  Buddy Bench for Koko Head Elementary School:  Contact Dean Keil,

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!

Saturday, December 21 is Pot Luck Sizzle.  Bring your favorite holiday dish (or appetizer or dessert)!  Eggnog anyone?
