Kin Canada has recognized the Kinsmen Club of Flin Flon with a special award. The Club’s Tom Therien says the Club received the Bill Skelly Award that is given in recognition for a service project for cystic fibrosis for which the local club won based on their min-golf fund raiser. He says Bill Skelly was a long time member of Kin Canada who had cystic fibrosis. He wanted the organization to get involved with cystic fibrosis and they’ve been involved now for well over 40 years and their contribution this year put them over the 40 million dollar mark nationally.
Kin Canada notes only one club in each district receives this annual award so Therien says the local club is really pleased to have received it.
