The Kinsmen Club of Estevan has bestowed Byron Stepp with a life membership – the highest honour that can be achieved in the Kin Canada organization.
In order to receive a life membership, a member must be in good standing and have been part of the organization for more than 10 years. Stepp has been very well known around the community for his involvement with the Kinsmen.
He has held almost every position at the club level, including president, vice-president, secretary, risk manager and membership director. He has also chaired many events and is always willing to lend a hand or give advice related to Kin.
Stepp has also served in the district as governor and deputy governor, and was part of the Kinsmen Telemiracle Foundation Board.
Stepp has balanced his commitment to Kin with his love for his family and his dedication to his friends.
Vice governor Sandi Barrie presented Stepp with a plaque, pin and name badge in recognition of the life membership during an event May 26. Several others spoke and told stories about his involvement in the Kinsmen.
