Welcome!


2013 current kinettes

The Kinette Club of Edmonton has been fulfilling our goal of “serving the community’s greatest need” for more than 75 years in Edmonton.  We are part of Kin Canada, the largest Canadian service organization with nearly 500 clubs from coast to coast.  The Edmonton Kinettes are a dynamic group of woman with a common goal – to help make our community a better place.  Not only do we learn and grow personally through all our endeavours, but we also have fun and make friends while we volunteer together.

If you are interested in attending a meeting and finding out more about us, please contact our Membership Officer, Karen at membership@edmontonkinettes.ca

If you have any other questions please contact our Club President, Christine at president@edmontonkinettes.ca

You will be a member of a 6 person team. Each team member donates $30 to participate ($15 for Charity and $15 for Beers/Coolers).   You can register as a team or as an individual (we will place you in a team!).  You can also enter more than once to increase your odds!

From May 22nd – 31st  there will be a daily draw eliminating individuals (number of names pulled each day to be determined) but don’t worry as long as one team member is still in the draw, your team is safe, once all 6 names have been pulled, the team is eliminated.  

Draws will be done via facebook live and also emailed to all the participants daily!

Final draws will take place June 1st and the winning teams will be announced.  All winning teams will be sent a small catalogue of Beer and Coolers so they can choose the options they would like.  Prize size will vary – six pack of beer or coolers, or 4-pack of coolers depending on brand, and some wine options.

DEADLINE is May 15th, 2018 to enter and pay

You can enter by using the google doc link to document and email transfer your payment to treasurer@edmontonkinettes.ca (use password beer2018) or chose credit card and we will call you for payment over the phone.  If you have any questions you can call or email Angela or Susan at summer.sippin@shaw.ca

Our 6th annual National Day of KINdness is Saturday 24 February.  This day always takes place during the same week that we celebrate the founding of Kin Canada – 20 February 1920.

On this day, clubs across the country spearhead activities and selfless acts within their communities to promote the need for kindness.

THIS YEAR: the Kinette Club of Edmonton will get together to hand out Tim’s cards to those who many need a coffee break or a distraction or a moment away.

Where: Saturday @ 10:30, the Tim Hortons at the Royal Alex Hospital.

Why: to spread kindness in our community, to put a smile on someone’s face, to give a much needed break and treat to someone waiting with or for a loved one. Because it’s what we do best. make sandwiches and snacks to hand-deliver to the homeless and needy people of central Edmonton.  There will also be some individual members donating blood, buying coffees, and performing other acts of kindness around our city.   #Kindness #PassItOn
