Welcome to the Kinsmen Club of Cornwall Website.
The Kinsmen Club of Cornwall has been a staple in the Cornwall community for over 80 years, dedicated to ‘Serving the Community’s Greatest Need Since 1933. As one of Cornwall’s premiere service clubs the Kinsmen are known to support many organizations and events in and around Cornwall such as Kinsmen Cornwall Lift-off, Kinsmen Minor Soccer, Kinsmen Music Festival, Kinsmen Girl’s Hockey, Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation, Boys and Girls Club of SD&G, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, to name a few. Support is provided mostly through funds raised by our membership however we also provide much need man power to make resource driven events, such as Operation Red Nose, to become a reality.
Our club is part of a National Organization, Kin Canada, which is comprised of various clubs all across Canada. These clubs include Kinsmen Clubs, Kinette Clubs, Kin Clubs and most recently Campus Clubs. Throughout its history the “Family of Kin” has raised over one billion dollars to support various causes, events and organizations across Canada and in particular over 40 million dollars for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) research..
2014 will mark the 60th Anniversary of the Kinsmen Music Festival, and with its steep history, many people in our community have been involved in one way or another either as a participant or volunteer over the years. I would like to thank the Kinette Club of Cornwall for their many years of support to the Kinsmen Music Festival as it would not be what it is today without their many years of support and involvement. I encourage everyone, young and old, to come celebrate with us during this momentous occasion.
I encourage you to continue navigating through our website to learn more about the music festival and many other events planned for 2014. Send us a message if you are interested in becoming involved or would like to have the Kinsmen consider supporting your organization or event in the future.
In closing, I would like to thank everyone in the Cornwall and SD&G community that have supported the Kinsmen Club of Cornwall over the years either through our weekly TV Bingo or the many other events that have taken place throughout our history. It is truly your support that allows us to “Serve You” and The Community’s Greatest Need!
Yours in Kin,
Kinsmen Club of Cornwall
