Ainsley’s Angels Day at Fort Smith Lake

The Kiwanis Club of Fort Smith would like to sponsor an Ainsley’s Angels Family Day at Lake Fort Smith on Sunday July 22. We will have access to the dining hall, canoes/kayaks and lots of fishing gear! A pontoon boat will also be available for us to enjoy. This will be a great opportunity to spend time with one another, because like Ainsley’s father Kim Rossiter often says: “Ainsley’s Angels is more than an organization. We are a family”
