ELGIN AREA MEN’S SHED
1023 St Charles St, Elgin, IL 60120
Men’s Sheds are informal in approach and welcome seniors from all walks of life, whatever their backgrounds.
They are a group of people who for one reason or another have some spare time on their hands, and for whom the idea of using their time in a creative and socially interactive way is appealing.
Men involved in practical tasks and getting to know people by working alongside them rather than sitting down face to face.
Good health is based on many factors including feeling good about yourself, being productive, contributing to your community, connecting with friends and maintaining an active body and mind. Becoming a member of a Men’s Shed provides a safe and busy environment where men can find many of these things in an atmosphere of old-fashioned friendship. And, importantly, there is no pressure. Men can just come and chat with the guys and a cup of coffee if that is all they’re looking for.
Our Members come from all walks of life – the bond that unites them is that they are men with time on their hands and would like something meaningful to do with that time.
Our Men’s Shed provides a safe and comfortable environment where men are welcome to work on Men’s Shed community projects, or a project of their choice in their own time and where the only ‘must’ is to observe safe working practices.
There are more than 2,000 Men’s Sheds globally. The Elgin Area Men’s Shed is the 14th in the U. S. We are dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of its members and helping them to once again become valued and productive members of our community.
