Kin Club of Russell Wraps Up for the Year

The Kin Club of Russell finished its last meeting of the year with a bang…another four new members bringing the club to a whopping 48 members. The Kin Club grew from 27 members in October, adding another 21 new members to its ranks to finish off strong for the year as the club prepares for a busy fall.

Fresh from District Convention in Cornwall where the Kin Club of Russell’s Sports Dome project won the service project award for its efforts (now going to compete at the national level for the best service project of the year), the Kin Club has a number of projects slated for the fall;

1.     The Kin Club is continuing its new Catch the Ace lottery draw which started June 17th – tickets are available at Pierre et Fils, Etienne Brule Brewery, Russell Foodland and Pronto;

2.     The Kin Club is hosting its first District convention - the District Fall Leadership Conference in Russell on November 3rd;

3.     The Dr. Darrell Menard Roast (Roasted Doc à le Menard) will take place December 1st at the Embrun Community Centre; and,

4.     The Kin Club is also starting its work on the Welcome to Russell signs for the east and west entrances into Russell.
