The Objects of the Association are to promote and direct service work through fellowship amongst its members, to the end that:
In 1997, the Club took over the sponsorship of the Cornwall Kinsmen Girls Hockey. This league continues annually to register over 200 girls. It has developed the skills of many and has produced Olympian Lori Dupuis.
The disasters in 1977 of the Red River Flood saw Kinsmen from Cornwall go to Winnipeg, for a week to assist with the cleanup. Those Kinsmen jobs were too ripe out the interiors of three (3) houses, so that they it could be inspected, for reconstruction or demolation.
The Ice Storm of 98 saw the Club assist with a shelter outside of the City.
Little Rock Curling, in 1999, came about because of funding by the Club. Today over 50 youth are involved in what has become known as, Kinsmen Little Rock Curling. This activity continues to grow in our community.
In the millennium year 2000, the Club took on the sponsorship of the new Cornwall Kinsmen Minor Lacrosse League, which registered 200 children. Cornwall was a major lacrosse centre and our hopes are this sport be revived in Cornwall.
