Our Mission and Purpose

To encourage healthy physical, social and mental opportunities for senior men and women to share friendships, experiences and projects with pride, dignity and Aloha in a welcoming environment for the benefit of our members and community.

WGN News. 5/3/2023 Director of the U.S. Men`s Shed Association, Mark Winston, talks about the movement that started in Australia in the 1990s, to combat loneliness among retired men, which has grown to more than 2,500 sheds in a dozen countries. Men’s Sheds have given thousands of men around the world a new lease on life.
