Kinsmen and Kinettes work hard to make a better Christmas


KENTVILLE N.S. – Last year over 175 children benefitted from the Christmas Miracle benefit and the Holiday Family Fun-raiser.

Volunteers with the Kinsmen and Kinettes know that the gratitude of families in need during the holidays makes all the hard work that goes into their annual Christmas Miracle worthwhile.

The service club held a benefit for the Christmas Miracle at the Cornwallis Inn ballroom in Kentville Nov. 12 and a good crowd turned out.

The MTT Pioneers assisted in the fund raising and all proceeds go toward buying gifts for less fortunate kids in Kings County.

The Christmas Miracle radiothon will air on the AVR network on Sunday, Nov. 20.

The Kinsmen and Kinettes take applications for children between the ages of two and 13 years. The service club members then go on a shopping spree attempting to find everything requested. The Kings County 4X4 Club delivers the presents.

Kinette spokesperson Emilie Deveaux-Starratt said it’s a good feeling for the small club knowing that the proceeds will help families in need in this community.

Deveaux-Starratt has gone along to help deliver the presents and was moved by how thankful the parents were.

She said the organizers were happy the musicians and the Cornwallis Inn contributed talent and the venue again this year.

The Nov. 12 benefit featured live musical entertainment, more than 100 door prizes, an auction, basket raffles, a 50-50 draw, a canteen, a horse race game, a visit from Santa and more.
