June 11 will mark 150 years since the official naming of Clinton, and July 16 marks 50 years since the incorporation of the Village of Clinton.
To commemorate these two auspicious anniversaries a committee has been struck to co-ordinate the numerous events planned. The committee was formed with volunteers from many of the organizations in Clinton. This enthusiastic group will co-ordinate the events while promoting the community and the history it holds.
“I believe this to be a year like no other that will see Clinton showcased for its remarkable history, and treasurers it possesses,” says 150/50 Committee Chair, Diana Guerin.
Events and functions are being announced throughout the province in print, on radio and TV and through social media. A schedule of events can be found on the Village website: www.village.clinton.bc.ca and on Village of Clinton Chatter, the Village Facebook page.
