The Estevan Kinsmen Club is seeking new members to join the service group.
Preston Majeran, the president of the Estevan Kinsmen, said that the club is a great fit for anyone who cares about giving back to the community and also likes meeting new people. All talents and skills are always welcome to the club.
“We are looking for any kind of members we can get out there,” said Majeran. “We are kicking off our year. The first meeting will be September 14 at Estevan Diversified Services, and we are looking for anybody that wants to volunteer and be a part of the community.”
The Estevan Kinsmen Club currently has 16 members and they are always happy to see more people.
“We do have a lot of projects that require a lot of manpower like our Christmas trees, our Christmas Card Lane, our Chace the Ace. We are always looking for new people to come out,” said Majeran.
The Kinsmen is not just a service club, it’s also a fellowship organization and members have a great time together.
“We do a lot of things, we go to conferences, hockey games, we go golfing together. It’s just a way to get out and meet new people.”
The club can be as big as they want. And the time commitment can be as low as an hour here and there, but sometimes members also can be pretty busy if they choose.
“We always believe that it goes family, work, Kin. It’s not always about how much time, it’s more that you can come out,” said Majeran.
“We have one meeting a month, and some months we don’t have anything out there. Other months, like during Christmas time, we ask people to come out and do a couple of shifts just for a couple of hours a day.”
If people want to join the Estevan Kinsmen Club, they can reach out to them through their Facebook page or talk to any of the members they know and come to the meeting on Sept. 14.
There are always many projects on the go. Currently, the club is getting ready for the Christmas tree sales that will start at the end of November. They also keep going with Chace the Ace on Thursday nights at the Black Grasshopper with all proceeds going to various community projects. The club is also looking to do an NHL lottery in partnership with another group in Estevan.
“We are always open to new ideas for fundraising.”
Majeran added that the rink at Kin Park will be undergoing construction in the next little while.
“We just ask that everybody obey the signage.”
The rink will be done by professionals, but the Kinsmen Club is always working on beautifying the park, which can be another way to get involved for new members.
