Kin has been around in Kindersley since the Kinsmen first formed their club in 1945. The Kinettes soon followed, forming their club two years later, in 1947. Both clubs had over 60 years of “Serving the Community’s Greatest Need” until they both disbanded in 2011. Kindersley saw the resurrection of a joint club in 2019, combining both the Kinsmen and the Kinettes together as one. Kin is proud to be back in Kindersley to serve the community and to help out in any way.
“Kin Canada is an all-Canadian service organization made up of dedicated member volunteers who serve their community’s greatest need through hosting and sponsoring events and community service projects.

How to Join
Take us for a test drive before you join! Come out to a few meetings or work/service projects and see if Kin is a “fit” for you. As a Kindersley Kin member you will have the opportunity to volunteer in activities such as Christmas Tree sales, Zest of the West, Rodeo Dance and Beer Gardens, Booze Survivor, Meals on Wheels and Telemiracle as well as other service projects within the community as they arise. Maybe you have a great idea for a fundraiser that would help our community that you would love to see through!
Meetings are held every first Thursday of the month and are currently via Zoom, to ensure we are following health guidelines pertaining to Covid-19 protocols for the safety of our members and our community.
