Install Banners for Food Bank event

Event Date: 
Sunday, February 12, 2017 -
11:00am to 2:00pm
Description: 

We need about 6 Kinsmen (4 bare minimum) to install banners on 3 overpasses. Meet at 11:00 am at the small shoopping plaza corner of Crowchild Tr. and 54 Ave SW (SE corner). We can install one banner there and then hopefully split up and install the other two. The weather should be much better by then. Fellowship to follow if desired.

Coordinator: 

Dan and Mark J visited seacan on Saturday Feb 11th to collect banners, supplies and tools. Only one crimper could be found. Mark found super low-coast cable at Acklands ($30 vs twice that at Rona/Home Depot). On Sunday Feb 12th the banner install went very well (warm 5 C weather helped). Dan, Mark, newbie Ron Drost and Matt met at 54th Ave SW and Crowchild pedestrian overpass to hang the first banner. It coincidentally had the correct date for the Foodbank drive Feb 25th on it. Plan was to use that as training session for anyone new but too few Kinsmen appeared so decision was made to stay together as a group. For future years this is a great plan to follow. The task requires almost four per group. Matt once again did very little actual labour so you can get by with three. 162 Ave SE and Mcleod (Shawnessy) pedestrian overpass was hung second. And the 10th Ave NW and Crowchild Trail ped overpass was hung third. The crew retired to the Wildrose Brewery at Currie Barracks afterwards.

Nothing but Xmas Spirit

Brrrr ! Cold night, but were warm with Xmas spirit & fellowship. Xmas gathering at Hull was fun, with our attendees divided into 2 groups so we could dine & visit Stepping Stones, Reflections & Secure Programs. The evening started with Rob.L, Glenn & Barb getting tour of new Shaw complex. Dinner followed, mountains of Chinese Food- awesome, the kids really enjoyed supper. Too cold no Xmas carols in Teepee, so ping pong, foosball & card games became the entertainment. Kids were thrilled with their Xmas gifts from the KCC- girls rec'd make-up, new sheets blankets, towels, dvd player (movie room), wireless theatre sound bar. We wrapped up evening around 8pm with Xmas card exchange & photo of check presentation. Thanks to Rob Locke, Glenn & Barb Head, Cowboy for another very successful event.
