Rockin’ and Talkin’ – Looking forward to some slow time in June

Zee Chevalier's monthly report of the Clinton Seniors Association's activities.

June seems to be the month to relax and let down a little after the hectic May days in Clinton and before July and August bring family and friends together for summer holidays.

First day of summer is officially June 21.

We had a couple of hot weeks in May which everyone hoped were a sign of things to come, but then it turned cold and wet. A question in many minds…would Parade and Rodeo day be dry and sunny?

Weather conditions must be ideal for lilacs. They are stunning this year.

Many seniors were involved in all the Heritage Week activities and are now getting ready for the Clinton Seniors Association Yard Sale on July 1 at the Seniors Centre – 217 Smith Ave. Dry and sunny is necessary! Keep your fingers crossed! Come and check out the treasures for sale from 10 am – 2 pm.

Canada Day ceremonies will be going on in Reg Conn Park adjacent to the Centre. Plan to take in both events.

June 16 is Father’s Day. Opinions differ as to when and who started celebrating this day that complements Mother’s Day. It took many years to make the holiday official in spite of support from the YWCA and YMCA and various churches. Father’s Day typically involves cards, gift giving, special dinners and family-oriented activities to celebrate fatherhood. So stop a moment on June 16 to give a thought to the man who no doubt strongly influenced your upbringing and shaped you into the person you are today.

Seniors have lunch out on the first Thursday of the month. On June 6 they will enjoy soup and sandwiches at the Coffeehouse. Call Helene at 459-2469 if you plan to be there.

Cards and Games go on at the Seniors Centre every Monday afternoon. Come and join others for a social couple of hours starting at 1 pm.

The regular General Meeting will be June 20 following a Potluck lunch. Meetings will then adjourn for July and August and resume Sept. 19 following a Potluck lunch on that day also. All seniors are invited to be a member of the Association. Annual fees are $15. Meetings are the third Thursday of every month in the Seniors Centre at 217 Smith Ave.

Happy Birthday greetings to Yvette May June 18 and to Eleanor Pigeon on June 26.
