Kinsmen help provide new sturdy skater aids
The Kinsmen club of Tillsonburg, in partnership with the Town of Tillsonburg, would like to announce the arrival of 24 new skater aids at the Tillsonburg community centre.
These fun, sturdy and safe skater aids are made of a durable molded plastic that will be enjoyed by children for years to come.
The vision for this initiative came to Kin cedric Tomico and Kin shane curtis while participating in a family skate day with their daughters one sunday last February. during the skate they observed many children struggling with the skating aids provided, as well as having to share the few that were available for everyone present. it was in this moment they launched into the Kinsmen motto of “serving the communities greatest needs.” The partnership with director of recreation, culture and parks rick cox was formed and the skater aid initiative was well under way. it took a bit of time to get things approved through the different channels but only six months after the vision was developed they now get to celebrate the launch of these new aids. The Kinsmen club will be sponsored a december 2nd public skate at which point the new skater aids were released into the public for the entire community to enjoy.
on sunday, dec. 9, Kinsmen are sponsoring a skate from 1:15-2:45 p.m. Hot dogs and hot chocolate
