Hello Zone K
Hard to believe it is June already and the conclusion of this Kin year is just about upon us.
A huge thank you to the members of Zone K for making this another wonderful experience being your Zone Deputy Governor.
Things are not quite done for us in our clubs; remember that your Accredited Delegate form for National Convention 2017 is due to Kin Headquarters by July 15th. You can find the form in the Resource Library on the National Website or on the District Secretary's page here or on our Zone K Family of Kin Facebook group page.
As well, please ensure that your incoming Club Executive members have been shared with our incoming Deputy Governors. Kinette Presidents have already received that request via email.
Again, thank you for a great year and wishing you a great summer, whether you are relaxing or your club has summer projects on the go, I wish you all the best
Yours in Kin
Kinette Deputy Governor
Thank you goes out to the Clinton & District Kinsmen and to the Hensall & District Kinettes for hosting our Zone Conferences. Both were awesome and we could not have conducted our Zone business without you providing the day to the Zone.
From that we wish all Zone Award winners good luck at Spring Convention May 6th. Thank you to all that entered Zone awards and good luck to those moving onto District.
We look forward to seeing you at Animal House !!
Yours in Kin,
DG's Mat and Terri

Spring Convention always reminds us that our Kin year is winding down. The time has gone so quickly this year. All the clubs in Zone K have been busy with numerous projects. I would like to commend all the clubs for the hard work and dedication to making these projects successful.
Some clubs are just completing their major projects of the year.
The St. Marys Kinettes had a very successful "Spring Auction" in April.
The Hensall ladies are looking forward to their "Ladies Night in May.
Mitchell Kinettes are racing their "Rubber Duckies" on May 9th.
The Goderich Club are getting their hands dirty to make the town beautiful by planting and maintaining flower beds in the community. They will also be helping the Kinsmen at the annual "Summerfest" in July
Clinton Kinettes are gearing up for the July long weekend when they, in partnership with Clinton Kinsmen, present the "19th Annual Pluckinfest".
My Zone Conference went well, and I truly appreciate the hard work and little extras my club the Clinton Kinettes put in to hosting the event.
I have enjoyed joining all of my clubs at their meetings and events. They are all amazing women who go above and beyond to make their communities better. Congratulations to all of you on a very successful year.
Thank you for making me feel so welcome and part of the family in each of your clubs.
DG Betty Kelly
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I’ve just returned from 3 weeks back in Australia. It was great to catch up with my family and friends, and enjoy that awesome Aussie weather.
The Zone K Kinsmen Conference was held on Sunday the 15th March in St Mary’s. We had 43 members and guests attend. The theme was “Lumberjack” and we had many Lumberjack’s present! St Mary’s did a great job of hosting a very successful Zone Conference. Mat Lobb from Clinton won the speak off. Congratulations to Tyler Brady from Clinton for stepping up to be our Zone K incoming DG.
Zone K Kinsmen have been busy with fundraising projects. I’m very excited to report that we currently have 6 new members in the zone. With Club elections underway, I wish the incoming Presidents and Executive members all the best for their exciting year ahead.
Goderich Kinsmen : Goderich and Clinton had a great TV Auction with $50,000 raised. Goderich is now busy getting ready for this year’s annual Summerfest which is held from 10th – 12th July.
Hensal Kinsmen: The 1st ever Wing Night held in February was a huge success with over $4,000 raised. Their annual golf tournament will be held May 2nd. Hensall will be holding the Splash Pad grand opening on the 12th & 13th June in conjunction with the Hensall Fair. The 8th annual co-ed ball tournament will be held on the 19th June.
St Mary’s Kinsmen: had their 3rd annual Storage Battles on April 25th. The Hospital Gala Fundraiser will be May 2nd. Electronics Drive will be held on May 9th. The Club is also busy getting ready for Summerfest Aug 13 – 16th.
Stratford Kinsmen: are busy with Camp Tanner and getting ready for the Canada Day Parade & Fireworks. They are also looking after the bar for the Blues & Ribfest June 19th – 21st.
Clinton Kinsmen: Had a successful TV Auction with Goderich Kinsmen. The Club is also busy getting ready for Pluckinfest July 3rd – 5th.
I would like to congratulate the Zone K Kinsmen on another fantastic year. The Club Presidents, Executive’s and members do some amazing projects to provide service and raise money that goes back into the communities we live in. You should all feel very proud of your achievements!
I’ve greatly enjoyed my year as Deputy Governor in Zone K. As this is only my 4th year in Kin it has certainly been a steep learning curve but I have to say it has been my best year in Kin so far. The more I learn about Kin the prouder I feel to be a part of this amazing organisation. It really is the people that make the difference and stepping into the Deputy Governor role has helped me to meet so many more of our Kin family and to see the bigger picture of Kin outside of my club, zone and district.
I look forward to “Bridging the Gap” at Spring Convention.
2014 – 2015 Zone K Deputy Governor
Kinsmen and Kinettes have spent September and October organizing and planning projects to serve their communities.
I am pleased to be returning as Zone K Kinette Deputy Governor. I am also happy to be working beside the Kinsmen DG Darren. We are both members of the Clinton Kin Family.
The Kinettes in Zone K are always there to support local groups such as Meals on Wheels, and Blood Donor Clinics.
Many clubs organized or participated in Terry Fox Runs across the Zone. Some of our clubs recognize graduating students by giving awards and promoting the Kin Canada Bursury program.
The St. Marys Kinettes held a very successful "All About Me", Ladies Day in October. Along with all the good work they do they also have plans for club bonding with movie nights, wine and mystery tours.
The Goderich Kinettes have continued their project to provide "Care Kits" for Teens in need.
The Hensall ladies support local sports by sponsoring or serving food at tournaments and fund raising events. They also do an elimination type draw.
Mitchell Kinettes serve dinners, blood donor clinics and have just hosted an Improv night which was well attended.
The Clinton Kinettes started the year with a club team building challenge course. They invited friends and family to finish out the day with a Mystery tour and Scavenger hunt. They have also sold Pizza kits and just held a Christmas decoration "New to You" sale.
FLC will be filled with interesting and informative seminars, a little business, and a lot of fun.
As the Holiday season approaches many of our clubs are involved in decorating, Santa Claus Parades and selling Poinsettias for Cystic Fibrosis.
I am looking forward to working with all my clubs and especially meeting the new members joining our ranks.
The Kinettes in Zone K have been very busy this year.
My first Zone Conference held in St. Marys' was well attended and many enjoyed the presentations about Cystic Fibrosis and Rejuvenation.
I have enjoyed attending many functions and being welcomed by Kinettes across the Zone.
In Clinton the highlights were the Christmas Home Tour, Santa Clause Parade, and Easter Egg Hunt.
The Goderich and Clinton ladies helped out with the Annual Kinsmen TV Auction. I made my TV debut as an auctioneer and enjoyed it tremendously.
The Hensall club are getting ready for their Ball Hockey tournament and Community Garage Sale Day in Hensall.
Mitchell Kinettes have been helping with blood donor clinics and held their first Family Day celebration to the delight of young children in the Mitchell area.
St. Marys' Kinettes are one of the busiest clubs in the zone with sponsoring Ladies Night, Spring Auction and helping with Meals on wheels just to name a few.
Many of the clubs sell poinsettias, pizza and popcorn, collect grocery tapes, serve seniors dinners, cater etc to raise funds to support their communities
This has been a great year for me. The Kinettes in this Zone are an amazing group of women who go above and beyond for their families, friends, and communities.
I am so proud to call them my friends and to belong to this wonderful family of Kin. When asked why I am part of Kinettes, I say that it is the people and their passion to help their neighbours, friends and communities to be a better place to live. It is well known that if you want something accomplished and done well, just ask a Kinsmen or Kinette.
Thank you to all the clubs in Zone K for making this a year to remember.
Thank you to our sponsors!
