The Brandon Kinsmen are pleased to announce Kennedy D. was selected for a Hal Rogers Bursary. Kennedy applied to the Brandon Kinsmen in early 2017, the club selected her application to forward to the National selection process. Kennedy’s application was selected from many across Canada as one of this year’s recipients of a $1000 bursary. Kennedy is enrolling in first year at the University of Brandon this fall.

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.

Opening on Saturday, May 30, the Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs of Brandon have been featured in a new exhibit at the Brandon General Museum and Archives – Web Site http://www.bgma.ca/
We were pleased when the museum approached us to produce an exhibit to highlight the important contributions we have made to the Brandon community in our 90 year history. The museum staff were great to work with as we selected artifacts from our club to loan for the exhibit.
The exhibit will run through the summer of 2015, intending to coincide with the Brandon Kin hosting the Kin Canada National Kinvention in August. The public is invited to view the exhibit during normal opening hours:
