Get out of the house this Family Day and join the Kemptville Kinsmen for a family skate and movie at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. This is the tenth annual Family Day event held by the Kinsmen. It began back in 2008, when the Ontario Government created the statutory holiday as a day off in February for Ontarians to spend with family. The Kinsmen have capitalized on this idea and created a free event for the whole family at the Municipal Centre.
“It’s a way for us to get the community together,” says Kinsmen member Terry Leblanc.
The free tickets will be given out, starting at 10 am on Monday, February 19, and will act as a pass to participate in all the activities that are organized for the day. These include a free skate from 12-1:50 pm on both Municipal rinks, and two showings of the academy award-nominated animated film “Coco”.
“It’s a great movie,” Terry says. “I think everyone will enjoy it.” The movie will be playing at 10:30 am and 2 pm in the Urbandale Arts Centre.
The Kinsmen will also be providing free hot chocolate and hot dogs for the hungry skaters and movie-goers, and Fat Les will be open, selling popcorn and other tasty treats.
According to Terry, tickets for the event usually go quickly, so get to the Municipal Centre as soon as possible to ensure your spot. “People usually line up at 10 am,” he says.
The Kinsmen would like to thank their title sponsor, Yazdani Family Dental, for their support, as well as B&H Grocer and eQ Homes.
