Earlier this year Countryfest held a competition to give a Charlie Major and George Canyon show to one lucky community in Manitoba. The Grandview Kinsmen pulled the majority votes and won the concert for May long weekend and it was a major success. Grandview Kinsmen with the help of Dauphin’s Countryfest are pleased to announced that they have raised $35,000 for their organization. These funds will help the Kinsmen continue their many local initiatives.
On May 25, 2019 at the awards Gala at District Convention in Wasagaming, clubs and members were presented with awards celebrating their achievements this year. Congratulations to all the winners!
