Please be Patient, as of Nov. 2018 we are just starting to add content to this website.

…and so much more!
The Kelowna Kinsmen is a co-ed club within Kin Canada, the only All-Canadian Service Organization (celebrating 100 years in 2020).
We join thousands of other like-minded Kin around the country in Having FUN while we raise FUNDS for much needed projects that each club deems most needed in their communities, while contributing to District and National projects as well, including our 40+ year partnership with Cystic Fibrosis Canada and the Kinsmen Foundation in BC (60+ years).
We have decades of experience in personal development in our members and mentor today’s and tommorow’s community leaders.
We do all this while having fun, making new life-long friendships and learning new desirable skills. Meet interesting community contacts, and give back to your community in a positive way. Have a say in where it’s needed the most.
Our general meetings are held on the: 1st and 3rd Thursdays each month (Sept – June). Generally our meeting on the first Thursday is held at our clubhouse: The Kelowna Kinsmen Fieldhouse located in the Mission Sports Fields on Lexington Drive. Our meeting on the 3rd Thursday is held at a local restaurant, and you should contact the president to determine where it will be. One of our major projects each year is running our Kelowna Kinsmen Softball League each year (20+ years) at the Kelowna Kinsmen Softball Complex every Wednesday and Thursday night during the Spring and Summer Season. We wrap it up with a 3 day tournament on the 2nd weekend of September each year.
