New roof for Clinton seniors’ centre

Government grant enables seniors' centre to upgrade the building's roof.

Seniors are enjoying a well-deserved respite from meetings and activities, which have adjourned for the summer. The next regular general meeting is on Thurs. Sept. 20, following a potluck lunch. Come and join the group! Fees are $15.00 annually.

The July 1 yard, book, and bake sale was a great success. Thank you to everyone who helped in any way, and to all those who supported the event. Roy Fletcher won the Cookie Guessing Game, and Marlie Paul won the Peel ‘n’ Pay Raffle cash prize. Congratulations, winners!

A booklet entitled The Child’s Right to Love is now available at the library.  It has been published by the Canadian Grandparents Rights Association, and is for people who want to know more about Family law in BC; understanding laws that apply to children and families; parental alienation and child/elder abuse; and where to get help.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Govt. of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, the Seniors’ Centre now has a new roof. Rigid insulation was mechanically fastened over the existing roof and PVC vinyl was installed over that, providing a permanent, watertight, insulated blanket over the entire roof. It is ULC approved, fire-, wind-, chemical-, and UV-resistant, and carries a 15 year warranty.

The installation was done the week of June 24 by Intercapital Roofing, based in Kelowna, which offers free estimates and seniors’ discounts. The company can be reached at 1-800-665-0858.
