A group of citizens has come together to start a new Royal Purple Society lodge in Kindersley.
Darlene May, president of the Kindersley Royal Purple Lodge, said the club was instituted on Sept. 19 and the club’s first meeting was held on Sept. 26. Only five members are needed to start a Royal Purple lodge and the club has nine members.
She said seven of the members are local and the other two come from Beechy and Kyle. There were not enough members to form a club, so the Royal Purple members from Beechy and Kyle agreed to join the Kindersley lodge to have enough members to establish the club.
The Kindersley Royal Purple is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers from the community. The club meets on the third Tuesday of each month at Brothers Restaurant starting at 7 p.m.For more on this story, please see the Feb. 28 print edition of The Clarion.
