The Kinsmen Club of The Pas won two club awards at Kin Canada’s National Convention in Halifax last week. The first award they won was the Hal and Espeth Memorial Service Award. The award is given to the best service project across the country The Pas Kinsmen submitted their work that they do for the Northern Manitoba Trappers Festival with the world championship dog races.
The second award the club won was the Bill Skelly Award for their work with the OCN Blizzard on the goals for CF. Where each goal scored at a home game has a 10 dollar contribution from the club towards Cystic Fibrosis and every shutout that a Blizzard goalie makes throughout the season has a 25 dollar contribution. The campaign raised 1200 for cystic fibrosis this past hockey season.
Along with the two club awards The Pas Kinsmen Club also won three Maple Leaf Awards of Distinction, an Outstanding Club Award, and many others. For a complete list of awards visit thepaskinsmen.ca.
Past President and Kinsmen member Kevin Carlson would like to thank the community and those that came out to help out with the dog races during the Trapper’s Festival.
