PETERBOROUGH – This past winter held an icy grip on the Kawarthas right into May but as the Canada Day long weekend and Summer approaches, Canadians celebrate our confederation with family bbqs, opening up the cottage, dusting off the fishing rod and colourful evening skies with fireworks.

#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 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.
