On behalf of Sawtell SLSC can I sincerely thank the team at Coffs Harbour Mens Shed for their great work in bringing the Cassius (or what is left of it) back to its former glory.
The Cassius now stands proudly in the corner of our auditorium. I have attached two photos for your records.
You may be interested in the name. When the Club was looking at raising funds for a new surfboat someone put forward the idea of naming it after Cassius Clay (before he became Muhammad Ali). A letter was sent to Cassius asking for his support but alas no reply.
I believe the Cassius came to a sudden end whilst competing in a carnival at North Beach and what you have repaired was what was able to be salvaged.
A Certificate of Appreciation will be sent by snail mail.
Once again many, many thanks
$299 Donation to the Coffs Hospital
The shed donated a refurbished piano keyboard to the Mental Health Ward at the Coffs Base Hospital.
The piano is so old it couldn't be tuned, so was replaced for the entertainment of the patients.
Really, it wasn't this bad...
$3000 Donation to the Gilgandra Men's Shed
We raised $3000 to send to the Gilgandra Men's Shed to aid in drought assistance for families in need.
Pallets for Kids School
Submitted photo of the A-frame pallets we made for Bunnings, who donated and installed at the school behind the Men's Shed.
We also built and donated a cubby house.
Software for Council
Ray Meyer designed software to help the media department at the Coffs Harbour Council.
In order to streamline images that are archived, Ray Meyer designed and implemented a program to automatically reduce images and label with required information. 3 seperate images are produced, and stored in different folders, ready to store around the network. The automation reduced labour times from 10 minutes to 30 seconds per session.

A big thankyou to all involved in this project.
