Reaching Milestones, Looking to a Bright Future

January 21, 2014

Over the last several months, we’ve seen many Kin Canada clubs celebrate major anniversaries. There have been 40, 60 and even 90 year milestones reached, which as a result, make us reflect on the accomplishments of the past (almost) 94 years Kin Canada has been around – and look forward to the future with determination to make the next 94 years just as noteworthy.

On February 20, 2014, Kin Canada will celebrate 94 years of serving the community’s greatest need. Those needs have varied over the years and will continue to vary, depending on the city or town a club serves. This is what makes being part of a service organization so meaningful; clubs look at their community and decide what the greatest need (or needs) is, and do projects, host events and fundraise to address them.

Needs range from service projects like park clean ups and holiday ride programs, to funding playgrounds, purchasing hospital equipment, sponsoring families, and even, offering kindness.

Membership may have decreased in service organizations over the years, but the dedication of volunteer members is strong as ever. Get involved with a club and help serve your community’s greatest need.
