History


Kin was born in Hamilton, Ontario on February 20th, 1920.


Harold (Hal) A. Rogers had been encouraged by his father, a Rotarian, to join the Rotarian organization. Due to a rule stating a club could not have more than one member engaged in the same profession, Hal was denied membership. Undaunted he gathered together several young men for dinner at the Namking Restaurant. The result was the Kinsmen Club of Hamilton, and Kin Canada was born.


From this group of a dozen earnest young men, determine to perpetuate in peacetime the ideal of service to Canada, has grown Kin Canada: nearly 500 clubs serving communities all across Canada.
