FESTIVE GEOCACHERS got into the spirit of things in Clinton on Canada Day. Some 200 enthusiastic geocachers finished the four day “Passport to the Gold Trail” event there in time to celebrate our nation’s birthday.

Push is on for Clinton to be awarded five blooms

Busy Canada Day

The Canada Day celebration in Clinton was busier than usual, as up to 200 geocaching enthusiasts joined the festivities. It was the final day of the four-day Gold Country Geocache event that saw folks from all over explore the area from Spences Bridge to Green Lake and areas in between.

The finale saw numerous prizes awarded to deserving participants. They enjoyed the hot dogs and cake provided by the Village of Clinton, as well as treats provided by Gold Country Communities Society.

It was a great way to celebrate Canada’s 147th anniversary.

No Cricket

The cricket match that was to be held on July 5 in Elliot Park was cancelled, leaving many folks disappointed. Word did not get to everyone, so some people showed up expecting to watch cricket. Needless to say they were very unhappy. It is hoped that the next scheduled matches go off without a hitch.

Music in the Park

The first Music in the Park event for 2014 was held in Reg Conn Centennial Park on July 5.

The lively duo of Saskia and Darrel kept the crowd entertained with their stories and original music. Saskia’s command of the flute is amazing, and her yodelling echoed from the hills. Although it was cool in the park the rain held off and everyone enjoyed the show.

Thank you to the Spirit of Clinton and especially Councillor David Park for bringing this fantastic concert to Clinton.

Community Cleanup

The Village of Clinton and the Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee have joined forces to encourage everyone in Clinton to do their part to help the Village achieve five blooms in the CiB competition.

Flyers and notices have gone out to residents asking people to Rake it! Plant it! Prune it! Trash it! Clean it! and Recycle it!

The two National Communities in Bloom judges will arrive in Clinton on Sunday July 20, and it is hoped they will get a good impression of the community.
