Saturday Night saw Neepawa participate in the Parade of Lights. The event had a great turn out with lots of Christmas cheer. The Neepawa Kin Club, along with Arts Forward, entered a float complete with children singing Christmas carols. Members of the Kin Club walked the parade route collecting unwrapped Christmas gifts for the Salvation Army Christmas hampers. Neepawa Kin Club President, Shelley Foxton, proudly stated, “it was terrific to see the whole community come together and share in the Christmas spirit. The joy in the children’s faces will keep the club doing this for years to come.” The club is currently selling Cheer for a Year tickets, the draw date is December 16th, so get yours soon.

Governor John DeBeer, Past Governor Amanda Naughton-Gale, Deputy Governor Hollee Babcock and host of members from Boissevain, Brandon, Flin Flon, The Pas and Thompson were going to Leaf Rapids, MB.

On that day, 29 community members from the Leaf Rapids formally become members of the first-choice service organization in Canada. Since that day, the club has been leaders in their community and without a doubt served their community’s greatest needs. “The North of 56 Kin Club has done amazing things in their community.” States Read More
