2019 Ride for the Breath of Life

National Day of KINdness – What We Take For Granted

Kinsmen Club of Brandon members assembled 50 mens hygiene kits that will go to Samaritan House for those in need. These are things that most of us take for granted having in our bathrooms or homes. The value of a clean and dry pair of socks can be tremendous.

What We Take For Granted

The Kinsmen Club of Brandon donated more men’s hygiene kits to Samaritan House on December 18, 2018. Staff at Samaritan House were very receptive to the donation and assured us the kits are needed this holiday season. Plans are underway for additional “What We Take For Granted” donations over the coming months.

2015 Brandon Santa Claus Parade

The Brandon Kinsmen entered our float in the Santa Claus Parade. This year we had the Delorean Time Machine tribute car, the Mystery Machine tribute van, and one of the PASCAR race cars. The kids loved seeing Scooby and we also had some nice comments about the Delorean. We were pleased it went over well. Kudos to all the other floats and thanks to the organizers, it went smoothly as always.

Here are some pics:








PASCAR Successful First Race of 2015

PASCAR held our first public race day on May 31, 2015. There was a great turn out and very exciting racing action.

Most of our race teams from last year have returned, and their cars were better than ever. We also had some new teams, and all told we had more cars on our first day of racing in 2015 than we had on our best day in 2014. And we know there are more teams building more cars, so look for 2015 to be a great year of racing!

The track has seen many improvements. The bleachers have been upgraded, a new flag stand was built, and space added for concessions. Also, the derelict structures have been taken care of.

Our next race day is June 28, 2015, see you there!
