On the 4th of May we will be celebrating our 65th anniversary in the community. In honour of this, we requested to have our Kin Canada flag flown on the courtesy pole in the Town Square. Thanks to all club members able to attend, as well as Kin Tom King (performing double duty as a member and City Councillor), Tony “Bucket” Walsh (City Councillor) and Paddy and Darcey from 95.9 SunFM. We appreciate all the support over the years and are excited to continue serving the communities greatest need.
We take much pride in what we do as Kin. We are much more than just a club, and we are proud to take on the responsibilities in Miramichi that we do. We are always looking to expand, always hoping to add to our Kin family, and always open to anyone who wishes to check us out. If you ever wonder what we do on Thursday nights, and want to be a part of a non-profit that constantly gives back, we would love to have you. This video is a sign of what we do, what we stand for, and what we have accomplished.
Saturday was the “National day of KINdness” for every Kin related club in Canada. From coast to coast, each club performed random acts of “KINdness” to better our communities. The Miramichi Kinsmen proudly hosted a First Responders breakfast for the area’s first responders. We were glad to show our appreciation to the local Police, Firefighters, Paramedics, Ground Search and Rescue, Prison Guards and RCMP who all perform an outstanding service for our community – exemplified by the fact the Miramichi Firefighters just finished battling a massive house fire that morning. During the breakfast we presented our $1000 donation to Miramichi Ground Search and Rescue. Special thanks goes out to Paddy Quinn and Darcey McLaughlin from 95.9 SunFM who helped serve and clean tables as well as helping with the PR!
