Postage stamps needed for good cause

Zee Chevalier with news from the Clinton Seniors' Association.

Clinton Seniors’ Association meetings have adjourned for the summer. The next regular general meeting will be on September 19 following a potluck lunch. Cards and games are held every Monday during the summer (if enough people are interested) at 1:00 pm at the Seniors’ Centre. Contact anyone involved in the association to find out more information.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the July 1 Yard Sale/Book and Bake Sale, in spite of the extreme heat. Your support is very much appreciated. Thanks are also extended to the seniors and friends who organized the event, set it up, and worked hard all day to make it a successful endeavour. Congratulations to Terry Tucker, winner of the Peel ‘n’ Pay Raffle!

Clinton’s 150/50 anniversary has created numerous occasions for residents and visitors to get together and enjoy many and varied events. It’s been an incredibly busy and fun-filled year to date. Many seniors are involved in several ways, and contributing to the overall enjoyment.

Two more Music in the Park nights are coming in August; wonderful performances for our listening pleasure. The Communities in Bloom judges were in Clinton in July. Good luck, Clinton – hope we made a good impression!

If you’re out and about, travelling in our beautiful province, do everything you can to stay safe. There is a lot of traffic on the highways. Hopefully this good weather continues through to the Fall, but be sensible in the sun: use lots of sun screen and wear a hat.

I am still appealing for used stamps for a gentleman who is presently dealing with lung cancer, and who wants to make a stamp album for each of his three grandsons. I’d like to help him get this done in the time left to him., and would appreciate any of your extra stamps. Please call me at 459-0028, and thank you to everyone who has contributed stamps thus far.

All seniors are invited to join the Clinton Seniors’ Association. The annual fee is $15.00, and meetings are always the third Thursday of every month at the Seniors’ Centre, 217 Smith Avenue. There are three fundraisers a year: the March Daffodil Tea, the July 1 Yard Sale/Book and Bake Sale, and the November marketplace.

Finally, Happy Birthday to Gene Chevalier for August 5. “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.” (Henry Ford).
