Kin Family of Summerside named the George Key Sr. Citizen of the Year

SUMMERSIDE, PE (June 26, 2020) – The Kin Family of Summerside will be awarded The City of Summerside’s George Key Sr. Citizen of the Year at this year’s Canada Day Civic Ceremony.

Each year, the George Key Sr. Citizen of the Year is awarded to an individual or group of outstanding character and exceptional contributions to the well-being of the City of Summerside and whose everyday actions have served as a positive example to the public.

“The committee made an excellent choice with the Kin Family of Summerside,” praised Mayor Basil Stewart. “The organization works tirelessly to serve the community’s greatest needs, through fundraising and working with groups, but most notably their Kin Family Christmas Appeal.”

Going into its 71st year, the Kin Family Christmas Appeal continues to help those in need during the Holiday Season through fundraising and providing families with the essentials for a traditional Christmas meal and presents for children. Led by Sue Gallant (Kinette) and Eric Ferrish (Kin), the annual Christmas Appeal is a great community cause that continues to help the less fortunate.

The Kin Family of Summerside will be honoured at this year’s Canada Day Civic Ceremony on Wednesday, July 1 at 1pm. The Civic Ceremony will be streamed live on YouTube for the public.
