Kins­men help pro­vide new sturdy skater aids

Tillsonburg News - - OPINION -

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.
