Kinsmen Radio Days event serves breakfast to more than 200

The Kinsmen Radio Days event was held at the Stettler Agriplex on Saturday morning, May 13.

The Kinsmen Radio Days, which was held at the Stettler Agriplex on Saturday morning, May 13, had more than 200 people come through the doors and participate in the pancake breakfast.

The event, which has been going on for about 12 years had the support of more than 140 local businesses this year.

“It was a great turnout and besides all the support we received from the community, we had the Stettler Regional Early Child Development Committee with their bouncy castles, Wendy’s face painting and Atco Electric with their power display,” said Scott McKenzie, chair of the Stettler Kinsmen Radio Days committee. “So far, we have raised more than $10,000 during this project, with all monies staying within our Stettler area.”

According to McKenzie, the Kinsmen slogan is “Serving the Community’s Greatest Need.”

“We support many local youth sports programs and other not-for-profit organizations, and we continue to look for ways to serve our communities with the greatest needs,” McKenzie added. “Kinsmen would like to thank all of the businesses who supported our event this year, whether through an advertisement or an auction item, we thank you very much for the support. Also, we would like to thank the community of Stettler and area for coming to support us through attending the breakfast, bidding during the silent auction or jumping on the bouncy house.”

The Kinsmen are continuing to sell tickets for the Kinsmen dream-playhouse.

“You can get your tickets from any Kinsmen member,” McKenzie said.
