The Tilbury Kinsmen Club was first chartered back in
1966. The charter began with 23 members and today has a
membership of 13. Over the years members have come and gone.
Today we still have 2 of our members that were part of the
original charter and are still actively supporting our
community. Still having fun after 41 years.
The Kinsmen club was founded by Harold Allin Rogers and
ten other men on February 20,1920 in the Nankeen Cafe in
Hamilton, Ontario. This group formed our association's first
club... The Kinsmen Club of Hamilton. Next came a club in
Montreal, then Winnipeg, then Vancouver. Kinsmen & Kinette
clubs are the largest ALL CANADIAN service groups in
Our Kin motto is “Serving
The Communities Greatest Needs”.
Over the years the Tilbury Kinsmen Club have been
supporters of local events such as The Tilbury Family Fun
Fest, Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Santa Claus Parade, and The
Tilbury Help & Information Centre.
In addition to our local commitments, the Tilbury Kinsmen
Club along with the Kin Clubs of Canada, support The
Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The relationship with
kin and CF started on a barstool back in 1963. In 1987 the
Association of Kinsmen & Kinette Clubs of Canada adopted CF
as our National Service Project. In the past 42 years we
have raised over $32 million dollars to help young Canadians
fight cystic fibrosis.
