Mayor Tim MacPhee and Council have proclaimed February 20, 2020, Kin Canada Day and the week of February 16 to 22, 2020, Kin Canada Week in the Town of Vegreville. 

The proclamation reads: 

Whereas, Kin Canada has been a vibrant, responsible, all-Canadian association of service clubs devoted to the concept of serving its communities throughout Canada since its founding in Hamilton, Ontario, on February 20, 1920; and

Whereas, Kin Canada has been dedicated to meeting the needs of our community and has diligently sought the development and completion of timely, relevant programs to meet the needs and challenges of our ever-evolving society; and 

Whereas, Kin Canada is celebrating its 100th anniversary on February 20, 2020; and 

Therefore, I, Tim MacPhee, Mayor of the Town of Vegreville, feel that each citizen would welcome the
opportunity to pause and reflect with pride on the rich heritage of accomplishment throughout the 100 years Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs have been in existence in Canada. And with the express idea of honouring our local club,

I DO HEREBY DECLARE
