Video: Dave Elliott recognized for service to Kinsmen

The Estevan Kinsmen Club recognized one of its dedicated members on Saturday night, when it presented a life membership to Dave Elliott.

Elliott has been a member of the local club for many years, and prior to becoming a Kin member, he was a part of the club in Kindersley. The presentation occurred as part of the Zone H conference that the Estevan Kinsmen and Kinettes Clubs hosted.

He was presented with a plaque, a badge and a pin as part of the life membership.

Estevan Kinsmen Club president James Jones paid tribute to Elliott during a speech. Not only did he recognize Elliott for service and dedication, but he also lauded Elliott for his common sense.

“The recipient of the life membership award is someone who often doesn’t want recognition for his efforts, and is often quick to encourage new or younger members to … be the face or voice of our club. Tonight we take time to honour a very deserving individual. This member lives, breathes, sweats and has even broken bones in recent years in the name of Kin.”

Elliott has been involved with Telemiracle, the annual Christmas tree sale, the new outdoor arena at the Kin play play in Hillside, the Canada Day celebrations in Estevan and many other projects for the Kinsmen in the community.

The Zone H conference brought members of Kinsmen and Kinettes clubs from throughout the southeast region to Estevan. They heard how Kin members are serving their community, and how clubs improve communities and have a meaningful impact on others.
