Late last fall, Men's Shed Vernon responded to a media call for interest in helping out the Vernon BMX Bike Club with trophies for kids.
Men's Shed Responded, and received a truckload of parts, and some new friends. We really hit it off with the BMX Bike Club leadership, and found that we had a lot in common.
One of our Shed guys took up the Point Man position for the project. Steve Chursinoff remembered all the days he and his family spent at the BMX club in Grand Forks many years ago.
Steve and several of our Shed guys got to work, and built a host of cool trophies from more than just the parts provided. The creativity was amazing!
Well...how did it go over, you might ask.
The BMX club had a picture perfect day today for their 40th Anniversary Event, with racers of all ages on hand from far and wide. Racers were winning trophies non stop. It was great fun to watch. They LOVED the Men's Shed creations, and Shylo Orchard was so kind to mention the BMX club's relationship with Men's Shed Vernon to all those attending.
Steve was sitting off to the side in a lawn chair just taking it all in with a big smile on his face. That's ONE big reason why we join Men's Shed. Drop us a note, and stop by for a tour.
