Hill City Kinsmen Hold Successful “Fans Lending Hands” Dinner to Support Local Camp

On May 5, Governor Dave was in Thunder Bay to attend Thunder Bay Hill City Kinsmen’s 7th annual “Fans Lending Hands” dinner which is held annually to support local causes.  This year, the beneficiaries of the event were “Our Kids Count”, and “Wilderness Discovery Handicapable Centre” .

Dryden Kinsmen donate $5000 to local hospital CT scanner
