Join us in welcoming two new Hal Rogers Endowment Fund Board of Trustees
The HREF Board of Trustees are very pleased to welcome Brenda Dineen (Palmerston & District Kinettes, D1) and Chantelle McAlpine (Lloydminster Kinettes, D3) to our team!
We are delighted to introduce our two newest Hal Rogers Endowment Fund Trustees! The HREF Board of Trustees are the stewards of the funds for the Kin Canada Bursaries program who manage the distribution of $1000 to all selected applicants each year. They also work to advance this very important program that helps increase awareness of Kin  Canada clubs while attracting youth and their parents to our Association. We are thrilled to have Chantelle and Brenda joining our team and know they will bring high energy,enthusiasm, and a diversity of skills and experience to our board! We thank both of these fabulous Kin members for stepping up!
Meet Brenda Dineen!
Brenda has been a Palmerston & District Kinette since 1985 and has held all executive roles within the club – some several times! She has also stepped up to Zone, District and National leadership positions over the years and has enjoyed how these experiences have allowed her to meet so many fellow Kin from across the country. Having spent 20+ years in the field of education supporting individuals with developmental challenges, it only seemed natural to her to lend her talents to advance the Kin Canada Bursaries program. Her passion for helping students achieve
their dreams, regardless of their abilities or financial hurdles will certainly be an asset that supports the work of the Hal Rogers Endowment Fund Board of Trustees. Brenda is looking forward to being part of choosing the recipients for a bursary, finding new ways to generate income for the fund, and helping expand the number of bursaries
the program can award each year.
Meet Chantelle McAlpine!
Chantelle has been a member of the Kinette Club of Lloydminster for five years and has hit the ground running by
holding multiple club executive positions and staying actively involved in club fundraisers and service projects. She has also held positions on the District 3 executive team and participates in the annual TeleMiracle Telethon in
Saskatchewan. Kin has always been part of Chantelle’s life, whether it was through playing in a Kinsmen Park as a child or participating in Bingo while growing up in Manitoba. She feels very fortunate to have been invited to her first meeting with the Rocky Mountain House Kinettes, in District 4. Supporting education and other’s ability to overcome adversity is a passion that she has always held close to heart. For that reason, Chantelle is proud to be part of Serving the Community’s Greatest Need and helping others advance themselves through education. Outside of Kin, Chantelle’s family keeps her busy. Her husband, Chris, her two sons, Mason and Wyatt, are her rocks and she appreciates their support and understanding as she shares her time and talents with our Family of Kin in various capacities.
