Coffee and conversation with local MLA Jackie Tegart

Clinton is a busy place with a lot of things to do for area residents

By Raven Nyman

Fraser Nicola MLA Jackie Tegart will be stopping in Clinton on Sept. 29 as part of her Fall Constituency Tour.

She represents 25 First Nations bands, eight municipalities, as well as all of the small communities in between.

Tegart has invited residents to join her for a cup of coffee and conversation at the Junction Coffee House in Clinton from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

She hopes to hear from locals on issues that affect our rural economy and affordability. Additionally, she plans to help others learn more about the electoral reform process.

Tegart will also visit the communities of Spences Bridge, Lytton, Boston Bar, Yale, Hope, Merritt, Logan Lake, and Ashcroft between Sept. 27 and 28.

To follow more of her involvement within Clinton and other communities throughout the Fraser-Nicola region, visit the Jackie Tegart Facebook page.

Fresh flowers available for fall

Sunflowers happen to be one of my favourites plants, and fall is, of course, my favourite season. Thankfully, the sunflowers have continued blooming this September, but it won’t be long before the frost puts an end to their beautiful displays. Never fear, Clintonites! Bubbles’ Blossom Design will have fresh flowers available this Thanksgiving.

A shipment of Bubbles’ blossoms arrives Oct. 2, which means orders must be picked up or delivered by Oct. 5. To order, call or text Jess at 250-819-3359, or send her a message on Facebook by visiting her page: Bubbles’ Blossom Design.

You can also find Jess at the Clinton Fall Craft Sale (Oct. 27) in the Memorial Hall if you are interested in viewing or purchasing wreaths, fresh fall arrangements, Christmas wreath samples, and more.

Fall Craft Sale coming soon

There are still a few tables available for crafters or artisans who are interested in selling their work at the 10th Annual Clinton Fall Craft Sale.

The Sale takes place on Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Clinton Memorial Hall, 306 Lebourdais Ave.

There will be a variety of unique items available for purchase, and the event will also feature door prizes and concession. Admission by donation.

Clinton’s Communities in Bloom Committee is responsible for hosting the event. To get involved or to book one of the few remaining tables at the event, contact Susan Swan by e-mail at

Open burning

As of Sept. 20, Category 3 open fires were once again allowed throughout the Cariboo Fire Centre’s jurisdiction.

Due to wet weather conditions and a recently decreased wildfire risk in the region, campfires and Category 2 open burns have already been allowed.
