Kinsmen much involved in Harvestfest
Ken Person — Delhi Kinsmen Club president

As chairman of the Kinsmen portion of the Harvestfest, I was a little put out last week in regards to a Delhi News-Record article that made it seem as if the Delhi Kinsmen participation in Harvestfest was dwindling.
In fact we have a great schedule planned starting with our beer garden for Friday, Sept. 19, beginning at 11 a.m. and running right through until 1 a.m. A local DJ will be playing from 8 p.m. to 1 p.m. Food will be supplied by the Kinsmen Waterdragons swim team and wings at 7 p.m. supplied by Jack’s Wingin’ it Wagon.
Saturday we will have a float in the parade, with $1 hot dogs following at the Kinsmen Club. We will, however, be closing the bar down at 5 p.m. due to a Kinsmen member wedding that day.
Sunday at 12 p.m. we will be hosting an ever-popular NASCAR Sunday with lunches, door prizes and wings.
The Delhi Kinsmen Club is looking forward to the new direction of Harvestfest and plans on being a part of it in the long run.

Mill gets boost
Posted 2 years ago
What was once old will be new again.
The Quance Mill will be open as part of the Delhi Heritage Museum after a $75, 000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation was given to the Kinsmen Club of Delhi.
"The Trillium funding for renovations will help to ensure the Quance Mill remains a living testament to the logging legacy of our area?s past," Haldimand-Norfolk-Brant MPP Toby Barrett said.
Kinsmen Club President Brent Stefan is excited to be restoring the historical lumber mill.
"We will be making the building wheelchair accessible, installing a new roof and new windows but we?re not going to take any character out of it," Stefan said. The plan is to preserve as much heritage as possible.
The Quance Mill is a lumber mill that dates back to 1913 but has sat dormant since the 1970?s.
"This project has been in the works for over two years," Stefan said. "This grant ensures we will be successful in bringing this historic building back to the public."
The wood needed to build kilns in tobacco country was cut at the Quance Mill.
Restoring this historical building will benefit the entire community because it will serve as a cultural learning centre as well as a tourist destination for Norfolk County.
Stefan said the interior of the lumber mill will be part of the Delhi Heritage Museum.
The Kinsmen Club of Delhi was founded in 1927 and continues to support the community and work to revitalize Delhi. It is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the community of Delhi through fundraising events.
Norfolk County has donated $25,000, Kinsmen Club funded $25,000 on their own and with the help of $75,000 from the Ontario Trillium fund, the Quance Mill is ready to become a new attraction in Delhi.
