When you were a kid it was great to have a place to meet new friends and discover new horizons. It can be the same now. Join a Kinsmen, Kinette or Kin club and become part of a dynamic organization filled with people just like you.
Becoming a Kinsmen or Kinette is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy fellowship with other men and women. In addition you will enjoy personal growth and will develop valuable business contacts. There is no feeling in the world like that of giving to others.
Kin is a valuable vehicle for personal development to anyone who is interested in it. We participate in public speaking contests, learn valuable skills by chairing fundraising and manpower projects. If members choose, they may hold office on a local, zone, district or national level. The opportunities are endless and are there for the taking!
Kin can add many things to you and your family’s lives. One of the greatest things that this organization will teach you is that you need to take care of your family, then your work, and then finally Kin, or other volunteer work, in that order. As a member you are required to attend Club meetings to the best of your ability. In the event you miss a meeting, there are several ways to make up your attendance. Clubs have special provisions in their by-laws and house rules regarding allowances for work, special circumstances, and transfers.
Help Your Community
Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs are the country’s largest all Canadian service groups, made up of active community volunteers. Members work together to serve the community’s greatest need by promoting service, fellowship, family values and national pride. They support Cystic Fibrosis research and fund local projects, like playgrounds and ice rinks, across the country. So, if you’d like to give something back to your community, the club is the perfect answer.
It’s very satisfying to be a member of the club. You’ll be proud of the work you do for others and pleased with the personal benefits that result. You may become a better leader, or more of a team player. You’ll find yourself more relaxed in dealing with groups; your presentation skills will improve and you’ll become a better public speaker. Plus you’ll have a chance to network with people from a wide variety of businesses.
Make Life-Long Friendships
Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin club members come from all walks of life, so you’ll enjoy being part of a youthful and spirited group. And like most members, you’ll make lifetime friendships that extend far beyond the club itself.
Have A Whole Lot Of Fun
Although Kinsmen dates back more than 80 years, there’s nothing old-fashioned about the meetings. They’re lively, interesting and fun. Fundraising events get you into the community and they’re always rewarding and entertaining. So join the club today, and brighten the horizon – for yourself and your community.
