Twelve members of the Kinsmen Club of Niagara-on-the-Lake cleaned up Niagara Stone
Road on a recent Saturday, from Henegan Road in Virgil to Anderson Lane in Old Town.
The cleanup was in honor of Kinsmen life member Bob Forbes, who passed away from
cancer earlier in the summer of 2022. Bob initiated the Adopt-a-Road program 10 years ago and
chaired the event until 2019. The Niagara Region program is a public service program for
citizen/volunteer organizations to pick up litter along approved Regional Niagara Road right of
It is a way for environmentally conscious citizens and community organizations to contribute
to a cleaner and more beautiful Niagara Region Road system.
Over the past 10 years, many of the Kinsmen have donated their time to clean up Niagara
Stone Road (Regional Road 55) three times each year. Club members have participated 30
times in total, even during COVID-19, for a total of 1,440 community service hours.
The Kinsmen Club of Niagara-on-the-Lake was established in 1970 and meets two times per
month at the Kinsmen Scout Hall, 430 King Street.
