Kinsmen hold anniversary party in Yorkton

The Kinsmen held their 100th Anniversary Party in Yorkton, and the event at the Gallagher Centre was pretty much standing room only. The party, with a 1920s theme, had a packed house in support of the crimson blazered community organization.

“The Yorkton Kinsmen are celebrating their 75th anniversary and KIN Canada celebrating 100 years,” said Ron Hanishewsky.

“To commemorate that, we're holding a Roaring 20s party to celebrate the hundred years and all the impact that KIN has had on the City of Yorkton and across the country. So, we've got Tony Martini here, he's our entertainment. He's kind of the host of the club tonight, so he's going to be our entertainment throughout the evening and a little bit of fun with some of the godfathers.”

The KIN was founded in 1920 by Harold Rogers, and the group helps with various community initiatives, such as helping to arrange funds for hospitals and charitable initiatives, community housing, schools, and various other community events.
