PETERBOROUGH – This past winter held an icy grip on the Kawarthas right into May but as the Victoria Day long weekend and Summer approaches, Canadians welcome the unofficial start of summer – family bbqs, opening up the cottage, dusting off the fishing rod and colourful evening skies with fireworks. (See Contest below)
#1: How Kinsmen help with Education:
The Kinsmen organization has always promoted the value of education, with the Kinsmen Club of Peterborough participating in the Kin Canada bursary program for many years now.
In fact, they began awarding single $1000 bursaries annually to Peterborough and area students three years ago. Eager to expand that initiative to assist more local students, the Kinsmen are establishing a fund that will provide annual $500 commencement awards at each Peterborough and area high school (8 in total) for graduates pursuing post-secondary education.
The criteria will be “a deserving graduate who is a Canadian Citizen and has shown leadership qualities while involved in extracurricular activities throughout their high school career, and who has demonstrated strong volunteerism within the Peterborough and area community.”
Reach out to us this week to find out more.

Peterborough Kinsmen Club does it again!
Once again, the members of the Peterborough Kinsmen Club banned together to support their community. Both buy selling Fireworks over the summer of 2018 and work Bingo shifts on Friday nights has resulted in an incredible donation to assist the Kawartha Food Share in purchasing a refrigerated truck. This is a gift that will keep on giving to the community for years to come.
“I can not even believe it!!! $11,000!!! Thank you so very much!!! I truly can not put into words just how much this means to us and how thankful we are for the Kinsmen’s support!
We will definitely organize a photo op when the truck is finished! I will keep in touch!”
