Description of project The Kinette Club of Thunder Bay Fort City agreed to be a part of the Cystic Fibrosis Princess Ball Sunday, June 11, 2017. One member Barb Thomson sat on the CF committee and worked 40 hours of service. We planned to sponsor and work as the Silent Auction and Penny Auction tables. Gifts for each were obtained from both Kinettes and friends, wrapped and brought to the venue. 161 children and parents attended. 5 Kinettes worked shifts that day from 8 a.m. until 4. One kinette was the ball's official photographer. It was a great success!!
