The Wilkie Kinsmen held their annual lobster supper this past weekend to raise money for community individuals and projects in need of support this year. 

The supper is one of the groups main fundraisers for the year. Aaron Lorenz with the Kinsmen said things turned out great, even though attendance was slightly lower than previous years. 

"Not too bad," Lornez said. "Our numbers were a little down, just having it later in the year. We usually have it at the end of April but I think a lot of people were already gone to the lake and stuff. All-in-all it was a good night."

He said the supper usual pulls in over 200 people. This year they only had around 130 people in attendance. 

Despite the lower attendance, the group still managed to raise around $4,800 from the night.

Lorenz said the group still hasn't decided what they'll do with the funds they raised. 

"Still kinda up in the air," He said. "I would imagine probably just some community projects. Lots of times we do some playground work at the schools or, I think our ball diamond needs a little work this year."

The Wilkie Kinsmen is made up of about 25 committed members. Anyone looking to volunteer or get involved with the Kinsmen can contact a member of the group.
