Meet­ing the com­mu­nity’s great­est needs

In the Kin or­ga­ni­za­tion many awards can be won in­clud­ing per­sonal, na­tional, recog­ni­tion or Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis Canada Awards, just to men­tion a few.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our Kinette Club of Marys­town for win­ning the Out­stand­ing Boake Ef­fi­ciency Award. Na­tional, zone and dis­trict re­quire­ments must be met to qual­ify for this award. We must have all our forms, re­ports and dues filed on sched­ule, and have rep­re­sen­ta­tion at dis­trict meet­ings such as the fall lead­er­ship con­fer­ence.

In Septem­ber we held our first meet­ing of the sea­son. We hold one meet­ing the first Sun­day of each month to dis­cuss any club busi­ness that arises, up­com­ing fundrais­ers, and our bud­get to en­sure we’re meet­ing our com­mit­ments to the com­mu­nity and other or­ga­ni­za­tions.

We al­ways start our meet­ings off with our Kin song, which be­gins with “Here we are to­gether once again. Happy in a fam­ily of Kin.” And that’s how we feel, and want all our mem­bers to feel when they de­cide to join our Kin fam­ily.

We as Kin have a com­mit­ment to sev­eral or­ga­ni­za­tions to which we do­nate an­nu­ally, the break­fast pro­gram in both school sys­tems in Burin and Marys­town be­ing just two of th­ese or­ga­ni­za­tions.

If you are look­ing for a way to make a dif­fer­ence in your com­mu­nity, please email me at dnolan1@hot­mail.com. Be more than a vol­un­teer. Join a fam­ily of Kin. New mem­bers al­ways wel­come
