Kinsmen to celebrate 71 years of service in Kelowna

Kinsmen celebrate by allowing women to join the club.

A Banquet to Celebrate 71 Years of Service to Kelowna’s Greatest Needs will be held Saturday April 18, at Manteo Resort in Kelowna.

With the start of this ‘Kin’ year, the members recently made an historic decision to open up its membership to become a “co-ed club” and welcome women and couples to join.

The banquet will feature a presentation of old photos and displays of memorabilia, from throughout the decades.

Beginning with cocktails at 6 p.m. and a plated dinner at 7 p.m., the evening will also feature a notable guest speaker.

Tickets will be $55/person and are available by contacting Vabe Sood at or by phoning 778-215-3399.  Payment by cash, check or e-transfer is accepted.
