“Serving the communities greatest needs”, that’s certainly what the Botwood Kinsmen Club has done in keeping with their motto.

The Kinsmen Club recently held what local organizations call Christmas coming early, but the club called it a donation dinner in keeping with the club motto and giving back to many groups and organizations that the Kinsmen supported over the years.

For many of the groups whose leaders or representatives have grown up over the years and have themselves benefited from the Kinsmen’s donation dinners, they can now pass on the pleasure and relief of the donation to each organization.

With money tight in everyone’s pocket the Kinsmen still dig deep to present funds to groups such as minor hockey and figure skating, Sea Cadets, libraries, schools — you name it and chances are over the years the Kinsmen have donated to it.

Following a delicious meal served up by the graduating class and parents group, the Kinsmen got down to the business of presenting the donations that will go a long way towards seeing the groups continue to be a great character building for the youth of today for tomorrow.
