Hi D4ers … your DMD here.

Happy New Year!!

What a better way to kick off 2017 than to announce another Kin-of-the-Month winner. On behalf of D4 Governors Susan Dickson and Dean Faithfull, and the entire PacKIN the Passion team, we’re excited to announce the recipient of the District 4 Kin-of-the-Month award for December – Joe Michielsen of the Kinsmen Club of Coaldale.

Even though he’s retired and has just a mere 32 years of Kin experience under his belt, Joe is still a very active and contributing member of the Coaldale Kinsmen. Joe prefers to stay out of the lime light and takes great pride in providing mentorship for the younger members, and seeing them shine and develop their own Kin career. Yet whenever a hand is needed, you just need to give Joe a call and he’ll be there. He is also the club’s Canadian Blood Services representative and the Goodwill Chair.

As part of the Kin-of-the-Month award, the recipient receives a $500 donation made in their name to the charity of their choice. Joe has a very personal attachment to our national cause, Cystic Fibrosis, and has chosen Cystic Fibrosis Canada as his charity. The Stampede City Family of Kin is December’s club sponsor and will be making a $500 donation to CF in Joe’s name.

Honourable mention goes out to Tricia Mitchell of the Coaldale Kinettes. From leading several projects to organizing the playground build fundraising, Tricia is always their to support her club, her fellow members and the community of Coaldale.

Congratulations everyone and THANK YOU for what you do!
