Ladysmith Kin to celebrate Kindness Day

Saturday, February 20th by sponsoring the Family Swim at Frank Jameson Community Centre.

The Kinsmen Club of Ladysmith will be participating in Kin Canada’s National Day of KINdness on Saturday, February 20th by sponsoring the Family Swim at Frank Jameson Community Centre.

Kin Canada’s National Day of KINdness celebrates people and community by spreading kindness through small service projects. Every community has a need for kindness and people performing selfless acts. Last year, 141 clubs performed countless acts of kindness.

Ladysmith Kinsmen will be spreading kindness by sponsoring the family swim on Saturday, February 20th at the Frank Jameson Community Centre.  The swim is from 3 to 5 and is open to all citizens, young and old.  As well the club members will be barbecuing hot dogs at the centre.

“The members of the Ladysmith Club thought that doing a KINdness Day project that could involve the whole family would be an appropriate way of showing the community how much the club members appreciate the support”, club spokesman Duck Paterson stated.  “In December we did a free concert featuring the Alf Carter Band and that resonated well with seniors”, Paterson said, “but we want everybody to know how much their support has helped the club over the years.”

Kin Canada was founded by Hal Rogers on Feb. 20, 1920 and is the Canada’s largest all-Canadian service club organization. This February marks the 64th anniversary of the Ladysmith Kinsmen Club. “Our club’s goal is to work to better the community and enhance the well-being of not just our citizens but our neighbours” Paterson said. “Kin boasts a proud history dedicated to fostering life-long friendships while ‘Serving the Community’s Greatest Need.’ “ he went on to say.
