The Kinsmen Club of Meaford
The Kinsmen Club of Meaford is a volunteer group that operates out of Kin Hall, at Memorial Park, with a mandate to raise funds to support local needs and cystic fibrosis, the charity of Kin Canada.
Their annual events such as the Tim Cronin Memorial Hockey tournament, the Duck Race in June, the Krank’em Slo-pitch ball tournament in July, Kin Kamp on the August long-weekend and the upcoming Santa Claus Parade, held on December 7th are all events to support our community. . They also run some lottery draws each year.
In the last ten years, Meaford Kinsmen have raised approximately $500,000 through their functions, with the majority of those fund raising efforts being donated back into the community. All proceeds from Kin Kamp are dedicated to projects within Memorial Park. Recent projects include the cement work at the lower pavilion look-out and the rebuild of the upper campground washroom.
Anyone interested in participating in their efforts are asked to contact them through their FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/kinsmenmeaford/ or through direct contact with a Kinsman or Kinette.
