Four members of our club (including 2 first-timers!) attended this years National KINvention in Sarnia, Ontario. This annual conference brings Kin Canada members from all across our country together to celebrate our successes, raise money for awesome causes, engage in service projects, educate ourselves and meet other like-minded KIN friends.

We spent a Day of Service working on several local service projects including painting a women’s shelter, helping out at a seniors centre, sorting clothing donations, packing food for hampers at the Food Bank, cleaning up the beautiful shoreline – really, just what we love to do!

One of the highlights was witnessing a room full of caring KIN members – who happened to get #KinventionDetention raise an incredible amount of money for the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund – which provides bursaries for post-secondary students across Canada! INSPIRING!
