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”
The Wilderness Discovery camp is a facility located at Lake Shebandowan. It is a handicap-accessible camp that has existed for over 40 years, but recently has fallen into disrepair and was facing closure. The Hill City Kinsmen partnered with a few other local groups and have made a 20 year commitment to complete necessary repairs and upgrades and keep this camp running for the foreseeable future.
The dinner was a great success and a good chunk of money was raised towards their ultimate goal of $1,000,000. The camp is scheduled to re-open in July 2018.
Congratulations on another successful Kinsmen event and helping to fulfill a great need in your community!
