At the joint request of the Yorkton Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs Yorkton Council were unanimous in proclaiming the week of Feb. 24 to March 2 as Kin Week.
Kinette president Chris Fisher told the regular meeting of Council Monday that the “motto of the Kinsmen& Kinette Club is “Serving the communities greatest need” and our vision is to create and promote strong, healthy, and engaged Canadian communities.”
By marking the week in the city Fisher said it would help the local clubs “support that goal at a local level and bring awareness of our organizations to the community as a whole.”
March 2 is also “the start of the 43rd annual Telemiracle Telethon,” said Fisher.
Declaring the week also helps raise awareness for this amazing project Saskatchewan Kin look after.
The local clubs have been hosting events to raise money for this event over the past few weeks, said Fisher.
Additionally, the clubs hold several projects throughout the year to raise money and all of the funds raised stay local in our community.
The local kin have a great history of working with city council and we are grateful to the support that has been shown to our clubs and we would appreciate the opportunity to maintain this tradition, said Fisher.
