Delta throwback: Kinsmen helping the community

The local chapter of the Kinsmen Club received its charter on June 1, 1936 with the Chilliwack Kinsmen Club acting as sponsor.

The funds raised through the club’s many events were directed to community services and construction projects such as the building of the first health centre in Delta, the Kinsmen Pioneer Library, Kinsmen House and the Kinsmen Water Park in Ladner’s Memorial Park.

Let's do another throwback and go back to Ladner in 1950.

The Ladner Kinsmen Club received its charter in 1936 and its first president was George F. Maxwell.

In 1972, the club changed its name to Kinsmen Club of Ladner-Tsawwassen.

They supported numerous projects over the decades including the opening of the new library in Ladner in the early 1960s.

The Kinsmen Club of Ladner-Tsawwassen continues to raise funds for the Kinsmen Community Support program.

Beneficiaries of the program include Reach Child and Development, KinVillage, Delta Hospital, Christmas hampers, Delta Sundancers Teen Dance Club, bursaries to South Delta and Delta secondary schools, Kinsmen Foundation of BC, Cystic Fibrosis – BC, BC Special Olympics – Delta Branch, McKee Seniors Society and the Delta Housing Be Mine Society.
