Desley Rial addressing official guests, shed members, wives and partners prior to cutting the ribbon and declaring the new extension open.  Desley expressed her amazement as to how much our shed has progressed in just five years.  Back in February 2014 as chairperson of the Iwasaki Foundation Grants Committee Desley had the honour of opening our Gracemere Men's Shed Inc and we were also one of the first organisations to receive a grant from the Iwasaki Foundation.  Just five years on and we were privileged to have Desley Rial open the extension to our building on the 22nd February 2019.    

Above left is our new lunch/function room table with the new kitchen in the background and on the right looking to the back of the room is our office and wall mounted TV for presentations, training sessions and general TV if members just want to relax with a cup of coffee.
