Kids’ Halloween Party was a hit

The Kids’ Halloween party took place at the Clinton Memorial Hall on Tuesday, October 31 and was a wonderful evening full of creative costumes and many laughs. The event was sponsored by the Clinton Recreation Commission and the Mill Girl Follies, and was well attended by children and parents from throughout the community.

Kids took part in a spooky scavenger hunt, pumpkin decorating, dancing, and more; many even had washable tattoos applied, and got the chance to have their fortune read in the mysterious “Pumpkin Tent”. A huge thank you must again be extended to those who helped make the evening such a success.

DSS 26th Annual PAC Dinner and Live Auction reminder

David Stoddart School’s annual PAC Dinner and Auction will take place on November 25 at the Clinton Memorial Hall. Doors open at 5 p.m., with cocktails and Mexican appetizers served from 5 to 6 p.m. Chicken and ribs will follow as the main course. A designated driver will also be available.

The auction will feature Clinton’s home-town auctioneer, Russell Allison, who most recently helped to put on the Ranching Strong fundraiser that took place at the Clinton Memorial Hall in October.

Tickets for the event are $20 each and can be purchased in advance at Integris Insurance, the Country Squire Gift Shop, Home Hardware, or David Stoddart School in Clinton.

A reminder that tickets are available now and must be purchased by November 24, as tickets will not be available at the door.
