The Kinsmen, Kinette, Kin, and Kinsmen & Kinette clubs are the country’s largest all Canadian service groups made up of active community volunteers. Members work together to serve their communities’ greatest needs by promoting service, fellowship, family values, and national pride. They support cystic fibrosis (CF) research and fund local projects, which provide playgrounds and ice rinks, across the country. So, if you’d like to give something back to your community, joining a Kinsmen, Kinette, Kin, or Kinsmen & Kinette club today!
The Kin organization dates back more than 98 years, but there’s nothing old-fashioned about what Kinsmen and Kinettes do. Activities and events are lively, interesting, and fun. Fundraising projects get you into the community, which is always rewarding and entertaining.
Kinsmen’s and Kinette’s each bring their own interest and ideas to the club, so you can be yourself with this diverse and spirited group. And, like most members, you’ll make lifetime friendships that extend far beyond the club.
It’s very satisfying to be a member of the Kin organization. You’ll be proud of the work you do for others and be pleased with the personal benefits that you received. 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.
The restrictions that the original Calgary Kinettes faced are no longer a part of this club. We do not have an “upper age limit”, and you do not have to be married to a Kinsmen. If you are a woman between the ages of 18 and 118, looking for fun and fellowship while helping your community, you are welcome to join our club!
