Striking A Balance – Bring on Canada Day

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

Canada Day

Everyone is invited to Reg Conn Centennial Park for the Canada Day Celebrations beginning with the flag raising at 11 a.m. Come and celebrate Canada’s 148th birthday with hotdogs, cake and drinks and activities.

Mill Girl Follies

By the time you read this the Mill Girl Follies will be preparing to leave Clinton and head off to Germany to represent us (Clinton, British Columbia and Canada).

You may have seen a few of them in the Ashcroft Parade riding with Mayor Jim Rivett and Councillor Wayne Marchant.

We wish the ladies well on their trip. They go with the good wishes and proud thanks from the people of Clinton.

Students fundraise for flood

Students of David Stoddart School held a bottle drive to raise money for the flood victims in Cache Creek earlier this month.

They went door-to-door collecting bottles and cans from generous Clintonites. The returnables added up to $1,014.03 when  counted and bagged.

The students learned a valuable lesson in helping a neighbour in time of need. Well done students and volunteers who helped out.
