In June of 2011 the POW City Kinsmen approved a donation of $6000 to Westmount Community School. This donation allowed the Westmount Community School to undertake an ambitious project to replace their old playground facilities. The donation from the POW City Kinsmen, when added to donations from other organizations and companies, as well as the school's own fundraising program reached the goal required in order to move forward. The POW City Kinsmen are also planning to donate time and efforts in the replacement of the old equipment.
In 2010 the POW City Kinsmen presented an opportunity to partner an event with our Top of the Hops festival to Farm in the Dell. A special dinner event was planned and raised around $7000 for Farm in the Dell. With a successful Top of the Hops event, the POW City Kinsmen were in a position to add to that event and raised the donation level to over $17,000.
A smaller dinner was held in 2011 and raised funds for Farm in the Dell once again. An announcement will be made shortly indicating our donation to Farm in the Dell for 2011.
