“Rest is not idleness, and to be sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” – John Lubbock, British Statesman (1834-1913)
Thank you to everyone who helped to make the July 1 Yard Sale/Book and Bake Sale such a success; those who set up, including Psalm 23 fellows, our hard working members who attended to sales and to everyone who turned out to support us on one of the hottest days of the year.
Donna Walch won the jar of cookies while Terry Rickett and Diane Moulton were the lucky winners of the Peel ‘n’ Pay Raffle. Congratulations!
A few seniors spent part of several days readying the Seniors Centre for the installation of new flooring throughout. You know who you are….your help was very much appreciated. Thank you also to the fellows from Psalm 23 for moving the large, heavy pieces, such as the stove, fridge, etc. before and after the installation. Hats off to you guys for your great help!
When a date and time is set, a call will go out to the Clinton Association members to replace everything where it belongs.
Cards and Games are played every Monday at the Seniors Centre – 217 Smith Ave. at 1 pm. It is suggested, however, that regular players check with one another about getting together during the summer.
Regular General meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month at the Seniors Centre. Members enjoy a soup/sandwich/cake lunch and that is followed by the meeting. Next meeting is Sept. 18 and lunch will be Potluck. Come and join us! Membership fees are $15 annually. Only three fund raisers are held each year – the Daffodil Tea in March, the Yard Sale on July 1 and the Marketplace on the first Saturday of November.
Happy Birthday to Gene Chevalier on Aug. 5.
