Serving Yorkton for 65 Years!

For the past 65 years the Kinsmen Club of Yorkton, with the generous support of the citizens of Yorkton and area, has been able to provide assistance to many organizations and individuals. In the early days of the Club, in the late 40’s through 50’s, York Lake was a major recreation spot, and the Club was heavily involved with the development of the facilities at Kin Point. In the early 80’s, the Club made a contribution of $25,000 to the construction of the York Lake Slo Pitch complex.

In the City, the Club was a major contributor to the construction of the Kinsmen Arena and subsequent improvements. Support for other City facilities include seating for the Agriplex Arena ($35,000), contributions to many neighborhood playgrounds, and $42,500 donated to the upgrade of Kinsmen Century Field in 1996/97. In 1998, the Club committed to $100,000 over 5 years toward the Gloria Hayden Community Center. In partnership with local schools and parent groups, the Club has contributed to playground equipment at various schools, the creation of the Infant Care Center at the YRHS, as well as annual scholarships at the high schools.

The Club has supported bands in the City with the cost of purchasing uniforms, and donated $10,000 to help the Marching 100 attend the 1998 Rose Bowl Parade. Along with the construction of facilities, the Club has supported Minor Sports with team sponsorship and donations.

The Yorkton & District Nursing Home and the Hospital have received donations including a $150,000 contribution to construction at the hospital between 1983 and 1986. The Club assisted the Parkland Ability Center to create the Kinsmen Recycling Center in 1994, and contributed $30,000 to the construction of the new facility that opened on Ball Road. During 2007 the Club gave $10,000 to Yorkton Kinsmen Minor Football and made a $200,000 donation in conjunction with the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation for the Digital Mammography equipment for the Sunrise Health Region. In 2009, $10,000 was marked for the Ducks Unlimited Harris Project along with $7500 to the Synchronized Swim Club and $5000 for Habitat for Humanity.

So far in 2010, we have given $20,000 for flood relief to the Salvation Army and SIGN.
