Men's Shed & Cedarshed Celebrate Collaboration

Ray, Larry, and Gerry from Men's Shed Vernon present Cohl Fleischhaker with a memento of our appreciation.

Three years ago, Men's Shed Vernon was looking for some funding to sustain our operating expenses. At the same time, Cedarshed Canada in Spallumcheen was looking for a reliable local partner to make components for their premium Cedar Sheds that are sold across North America.

A short time after the relationship began, the COVID pandemic measures and uncertainty threatened our success. Both sides dug in and found a way to keep going, and to contribute to one another's goals. A significant spike of stay at home business meant that the Men's Shed Vernon guys could be relied upon to help Cedarshed meet their new customer's needs.

The support came with great timing for Men's Shed Vernon, too. We are growing, and the relationship was an essential component in enabling us to make the commitment to our new location on Meadowlark Rd.

Men's Shed Vernon teamed up with Cedarshed Canada and Nicholas Alexander Landscaping this year to supply and install a cedar shed for the Kalamalka Rotary Dream Auction together. It was great fun.

Many thanks to the Fleischhaker family and their team at Cedarshed Canada for their confidence and support of the talented guys at Men's Shed Vernon.

Men's Shed Vernon relies on relationships and donors to support our initiatives to build meaning and well being in men's lives in the North Okanagan. Please visit us at Men's Shed Vernon with your idea for a creative partnership or valuable contribution.
