About Us

The Pas Kinsmen is a proud community service group that has existed in The Pas since March 26, 1960.  Since then, the club has been hard at work in the community with service projects and fundraisers with the goal of “serving the community’s greatest need”.  Look town to see evidence of the club’s contributions over the years: Kin Kourt, Kinsmen Place, Kinsmen Park, the World Championship Dog Races, and so much more.

The Pas Kinsmen is part of a national association called Kin Canada, which boasts Kinsmen, Kinette, Kin, and Kin Campus Clubs in communities across the country.

The Pas Kinsmen has a strong membership of over 30 members, but we are always looking for energetic, community minded people to join our club.  Contact us if you are interested in joining our club or attending a meeting as a guest.

MEETINGS

The Kinsmen Club of The Pas meets every Thursday night, one week a General Meeting and the next an Executive.

Our General meetings start at 7:00 with a meal ($17 cost) and then go through the business of the club.  Meetings begin with O’Canada and Grace.  We follow Kin Rules of Order and follow an agenda set by the President.   Normal topics include correspondence (donation and volunteer request), budget updates, and committee reports.   Members usually stay for a while after the meeting where we can do anything from watching sports to  playing cards.  Contact us if you would like details on attending a meeting as a guest.

Executive Meetings are a little less formal but also follow Kin Rules of Order.  They begin at 7:30 and do not have a meal with them, all members of the club are invited to executive meetings and have a vote as well.   Executive Meetings go through an agenda similar to General Meetings with more details of our budget presented and a round table that allows members to discuss issues that come up.
