The Kin Club of Russell is an all-Canadian service club made up of community volunteers who meet in Russell and work to enrich our entire township through community service, leadership and partnerships. It was chartered in 2011 and has successfully run countless projects within the community. It is one of several hundred clubs across Canada that make up Kin Canada – Association of Kinsmen, Kinettes and Kin – Canada’s largest all-Canadian service organization. It is a not-for-profit service organization working to better their communities, enhance the well-being of Canadians and improve the environment. The Association boasts a proud history since 1920 dedicated to fostering life-long friendships while “Serving the Community’s Greatest Need.”
Over the past 5 years, the Kin Club of Russell has raised over $200,000 for projects and charities within Russell Township. It has raised an additional $100,000 for cystic fibrosis research.
Its annual events include the Russell Winter Carnival, RocKIN’ the Night Away (50’s and 60’s dance), the Poutmasters Fishing Derby, Kaiden’s Classic Fore Cystic Fibrosis charity golf tournament and several Trivia Nights throughout the year in support of community needs.
