Over the May long weekend Kinsmen from all across BC attended the annual District “Kin”mention, which was held in Parksville this year. Seven members of the Ladysmith Kinsmen also were in attendance.
Ladysmith Kinsmen have been one of the stronger clubs in the District (B.C.) and this year was no different. In every District, convention awards are handed out to clubs that have gone beyond and exceeded expectations as well as various competitions. Also there are presentations to individuals that the District Executive feel need to be pointed out for their work in their communities and the Kin Association.
For 2014/15 the Ladysmith Kinsmen made their club known throughout the province, being named the recipients of some prestigious Governor’s Service Awards.
- Larry Adair received the District Governor’s Service Award for Spirit
- Ron Legault received the award for “Club Supporting Member”
- Duck Paterson won the District Governor’s Award for Leadership
As well the club won an award for their KINdness Day project.
