The Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon has continued to enjoy incredible support from the community with all of our fundraising efforts, which has allowed us to give nearly $9 million dollars back to the community in the past 22 years. Over the past year we raised and put back into the community nearly $1 million dollars, our highest total to date. We remain the biggest Kin Club in Canada, and the commitment of our members has helped us become one of the strongest clubs in the country.
The Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon's mandate is to "Serve the Community's Greatest Need." We are very proud to have been involved with many of the greatest projects in Saskatoon. If you watch for the Kinsmen name, you will see it everywhere in this great city. We continue to work on developing parks, arenas, theatres, hospitals, playgrounds and so much more. We also continue to support many of Saskatoon's hardest working non-profit organizations and charitable groups. We are especially proud and excited to see the pending changes and improvements to Kinsmen Park downtown. We support the arts and athletics through annual scholarships, and continue to support and expand our Kinsmen Inner City Hockey and Kinsmen Tackle Football programs.
These achievements are made possible by the tremendous support of the community through our many fundraisers, including the Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Dinner, 50/50 Progressive Lottery at the Exhibition, our golf tournament in support of Cystic Fibrosis and our Kinsmen Home Lottery each spring. We thank you the public for your continued support and pledge to continue to make the City of Saskatoon a better place to call home.
I invite you to contact the club if you know of a funding need, or if you are interested in finding out more about the club. We are always looking for quality members.
