The Kinsmen Club of Sudbury was chartered in 1939 and incorporated in 1956. We presently have 5 members and we meet twice monthly on Thursday evenings at the Sudbury Food Bank.
One meeting is a business meeting where many items are discussed including requests for funding, up coming projects, national information, and future project ideas to name a few. Dinner is usually ordered in and is always an excellent meal, dress code for this meeting is business casual. Meetings start at 6:30 pm and we try to have business completed by 9:00 pm so that we have time for cards, crib, darts etc. or just sit around sharing a few stories.
The second meeting of the month is more of a social based meeting to encourage fellowship. We can decide to meet at Sudbury Foods Bank or perhaps at a bowling alley, billiard hall or other establishments for an evening of fellowship.
Our Club mandate is to help improve the quality of living for people in our community by providing funding for various projects that we discuss and approve by our members at meetings. Over the years, we have, through our various projects, given back to the Sudbury area in excess of $15,000,000. Our largest project each year is our annual Showcase Sweepstakes.
