To help celebrate our community's Maplefest, club members partnered with the Kemptville Youth Centre to put on a pancake breakfast at the Agroforestry Centre. The breakfast was by donation and the funds raised were used to help support the people of Ukraine. Pictured below are a couple of our early volunteers prepping the kitchen
 
 
as well as some patrons enjoying a delicious breakfast in the morning sun. A huge thanks to all who supported us in this event.
 
This year saw a Kemptville Winter Carnival spring up on the creek. Organizers on short notice pulled together some groups to make the weekends of Feb -6 and 12-13 days of outdoor fun. The creek was originally cleared as a skateway by the Kinsmen Club years ago. Skating and shinny have returned this year after a long absence and are being enjoyed by many in the community. Pictured below are a couple members of our club who braced the cold to provide hot dogs and hamburgers to the hungry skaters enjoying a great community vibe.
From our families to yours, our club wishes each one of you and your loved ones a safe and happy 2022.
In conjunction with the Equinelle Residents Association, our club held a very successful food drive through their subdivision. The generosity and response to this initiative was overwhelming. Pictured below are club members sorting the donations. These gifts, which were shared with The House of Lazarus and The Salvation Army food banks, will help to make things a little easier for those in our community who are less fortunate.
