Kinette Club Seek Nominations for Adopt-a-Family Program

by Shanine Sealey

We are now at the midway point of November, which means the holiday season is right around the corner. With this in mind, the Martensville & District Kinette Club has been hard at work preparing for the season of giving.

This year is the fourth year that the local Kinette Club will be doing their Adopt-a-Family Christmas Program and they are currently looking for nominations for people that could use a little extra help this Christmas.

“Last year, we helped 13 families, and over the past three years, we have helped over 30 families. We are very lucky to have donations come in to help us make this program such a success,” Tracy Shaw of the Kinettes stated.

Nominations will be accepted until December 8th and the nomination form can be found on the ‘Martensville and District Kinette Club’ Facebook page, or one can be requested by emailing martensvillekinettes@gmail.com.

Donations to help support this program can be made by emailing martensvillekinettes@gmail.com, or by contacting Tracy Shaw at (306) 280-1833.

This year also marks the 4th annual Pictures with Santa Fundraiser for TeleMiracle. The Kinette Club pulled some strings and arranged for Santa to make a trip to Martensville on Saturday, December 9th where he will be available for photos. This event will take place between 2pm-5pm at the Heritage Centre, located at 415 6th Avenue South.

A minimum donation of $5/photo or group is requested, and photos are to be taken yourself. There will be hot chocolate available at the event, and all proceeds raised will be donated to TeleMiracle 48.

One of Santa’s elves is currently nameless, so the Kinette Club, along with Santa and all of his helpers are asking for help from the community to find him the perfect name through a colouring contest. Colouring sheets are available at Martensville Building & Home Supply, as well as Pharmasave.

For more information about these events, visit the ‘Martensville and District Kinette Club’ Facebook page, or contact them via email.
