Perfect pitch: music and cricket come to Clinton

Community events in Clinton include Music in the Park and a cricket match

The Heart Award

Councilor Wayne Marchant and Fran White of the Clinton Variety Club Committee attended an awards ceremony at the Grand Villa Casino Hotel & Conference Centre in Burnaby on June 24.

Variety—The Children’s Charity chose the Village of Clinton to receive the 2014 Community with a Heart Award. This was in recognition of the more than $6,000 that the committee raised for Variety.

The funds raised last year in Clinton for Variety—The Children’s Charity represents more than $10 from every man, woman, and child in Clinton. It shows what a small community can accomplish!

Cricket Coming to Clinton

A cricket match will be held at Elliot Park in Clinton on Sat., July 5. There will be a short tutorial on the finer points of the game beginning at 1:45 p.m. and the match begins at 2 p.m.

For those who may not know, cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of 11 players each on a field at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch. Each team takes its turn to bat, attempting to score runs, while the other team fields. Each turn is known as an inning.

Although some of the terminology is the same as baseball, the game is very different. Make plans to come out and see how the game is played and cheer on all the participants.

Music in the Park

Following the cricket match you can stay and enjoy the first of the 2014 Music in the Park concertseries, as Saskia and Darrell take to the stage at 7 p.m. This is a free event, so bring your lawn chair or a blanket to sit on (and maybe some bug spray!) and have fun.

Free Pruning Workshop

The Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee is partnering with the Old Cemetery Committee to offer a free workshop on proper pruning techniques for trees and shrubs.

At 1 p.m. on Tues., July 8 Roger Stratton of Horse Lake Garden Centre will use the trees and shrubs in the Clinton Pioneer Cemetery to demonstrate proper pruning. The workshop is open to members of the public.
