Rockin’ and Talkin’ – Canada Day activities and stamp collecting

Zee Chevalier's monthly column of Clinton Seniors Association news and events.

There have been some spectacular thunder storms and lightning shows. Now if the sun could shine for a few consecutive days, the gardens might grow and the flowers flower to do us proud for Communities in Bloom. Good luck, Clinton!

Seniors are involved in the July 1 Canada Day celebrations are going on in Reg Conn Park this year. Other seniors are busy at the Seniors Centre July 1 Yard Sale/Book and Bake Sale, 10 am – 2 pm. The popular Peel ‘n’ Pay Raffle will once again be featured.  Hope you come out to support this seniors’ endeavour.

Thank you to the Village Council who agreed to replace a tree in Reg Conn Park that had been accidentally destroyed by a Works crew. It had been planted by seniors in the Year of the Older Person. Thank you, Carl Hansen for doing the job. The lovely maple will soon provide shade for a picnic table near the playground area of the park.

The Lions Club has once again been hard at work for the seniors. On June 17 the foundation was poured for the second storage shed. Thank you so much to the Lions Club members and friends who turned out in less than perfect weather to do the job. It is very much appreciated.

Family Fun Day was held June 22 in Reg Conn Park with a few seniors managing the Fish Pond and Bean Bag Toss. It was a wonderful day full of activities for children. Thank you to the organizers. Well done!

Cards and Games will be held every Monday at 1 pm at the Seniors Centre, if enough people are interested during the summer. Check with one another.

Regular Clinton Seniors Association meetings have adjourned for the months of July and August. Next regular General meeting will be Sept. 19 following a Potluck lunch. All seniors are invited to join the Clinton Seniors Association. Annual membership fee is $15. Meetings are always the third Thursday of the month at the Seniors Centre, 217 Smith Ave.

Happy Birthday to Helene Cade on July 22.

A closing request  –  I am collecting stamps for a gentleman who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer in both lungs. He wants to make a stamp album for each of his three grandsons, so I need three of every stamp. If you have any used stamps I would appreciate them. I’d like to help this man achieve his goal in the time he has left. Please call me at 459-0028. Thank you.
