Community Ties in Dauphin
Myles and his wife Bonnie, wanted a way to give back to the Dauphin community. While raising their three daughters Kristen, Brenna and Sara and working full time, the family found it difficult at first to try and better their community. but once Myles joined the Kinsman Club they were finally able to contribute. Being a member of the Kinsmen allowed Myles and his family to donate their time, money and efforts to worthy causes that greatly benefitted the Dauphin community. Myles and Bonnie have organized a number of events, including fun runs, charity dinners and golf tournament fundraisers. On weekends Myles would often bring his daughters to volunteer in preparation for events, allowing them to gain a personal understanding of what it meant to work hard and give back.
Having been part of many athletic teams, Myles likes to donate his money and time to sports teams in the greater Dauphin area. Some causes that Myles has funded and help to raise money for include, providing hockey equipment to young players who can’t afford it, buying jerseys team jerseys and sponsoring away games for youth athletics.

Myles and his family are more than happy to contribute to these causes, in hopes that these young athletes can experience what Myles was lucky enough to when he was their age.
