After a 10-year hiatus, the Collingwood Kinsmen have resurrected. Kinsmen and Kinettes came from all over Canada to celebrate the club’s Charter Night, which took place Wednesday night at the Nottawa Memorial Community Centre. 90 members came out for the evening, from clubs as far as Barrie, Kitchener/Waterloo, and Fort Erie, including the National President of Kin Canada, who came all the way from Halifax to help commemorate the occasion. The Stayner club sponsored the initiative. Anyone interested in more information about joining a local Kinsmen Club can contact Glen Card by email at email@example.com, or Brandon Ward the CF director for the Stayner Kinsmen at 705-443-1461 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
