Rockin’ and Talkin’ – Make a positive difference in the world

Monthly news and information from the Clinton Seniors Association.

Hope that you have all had a relaxing summer! At times the weather was unbearably hot but the summer heat did wonders for local gardens. Produce from my neighbour has been plentiful and delicious. Thank you, John! Mosquitos were terrible at the cabin but fishing was good – can’t have everything!

We saw long-time Clinton seniors, Ray and Mildred Luce leave this summer to take up residence in Kamloops. They will be sorely missed and we wish them happiness and good health in their new surroundings.

Sometimes we are so busy adding up our troubles that we forget to count our blessings. Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture or word you can change a person’s life for better or for worse. God puts us all in each other’s lives to impact one another in some way. Look for good in others. –  author unknown

Regular activities and meetings will resume for the Fall with the first General Meeting being held Sept. 20 at the Clinton Seniors Centre  217 Smith Ave. following a noon Potluck lunch. Come and join us! Fees are $15 annually.  There will be no fund raising activity until the Nov. 3 Market Place, formerly known as the Flea Market, always held in the Clinton Memorial Hall.

Mildred Luce and Marge Zimmerlee, if you’re reading this, Happy Birthday Sept. 1 and 22 respectively.
