Striking A Balance – 10 Grads in Clinton’s Class of 2015

Susan Swan's weekly report of community news and events in Clinton.

Mill Girl Follies off to Germany

Clinton’s own Mill Girl Follies dance troupe along with Cariboo singer/songwriter Katie Kidwell will be heading to Germany at the end of the month to represent Canada in the International Folklorelawine.

This group has been fundraising for almost a year to pay the approximately $12,000 in airfare to get to the Festival. They have done catering, bake sales, spaghetti dinners, meat draws, and much more. Through all their efforts and the support of the folks in and around Clinton and 70 Mile House they have done it. Once they arrive their meals, accommodations etc. are covered but they needed to be able to get themselves and their costumes, etc. to Germany.

As a show of thanks for the generosity and support shown to them, on June 4 the troupe and Kidwell put on a show in the Memorial Hall in Clinton of the numbers they will be performing. It was basically a dress rehearsal with a couple of extra numbers thrown in just to say ‘Thank You’.

The hall was packed as the performers took their places. It was a very enjoyable show and those attending said they were proud to have these performers representing Clinton, the Cariboo, B.C. and Canada in this manner.

Well done ladies! Have a great trip and come home safely. We are so proud of each and every one of you!

PAC Meeting
