Striking A Balance – Camels celebrated

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

Clinton Annual Ball

The 148th Clinton Annual Ball is slated to take place on Saturday, May 16 in the Clinton Memorial Hall.

The theme this year is ‘Camels in the Cariboo’, a tribute to the (failed) experiment to use camels as pack animals during the Cariboo Gold Rush.

As in the past the evening will be have sit-down dinner, dancing and entertainment in sync with the theme. I don’t want to give it away so I’ll just say it will be entertainment not to be missed (especially for the men!).

Some tickets are still available for this event. If you would like to purchase tickets drop by the Clinton Emporium or Country Squire Gift Shop in Clinton or phone Yvette May at 250-459-7725.

Hope to see you there!

Be Fire Savvy

It’s very dry out there so please take care with campfires, grass burning, cigarette butts, etc. The BC Wildfire Branch is warning that this could be a busy year for wildfires due to our very dry winter and spring. There have already been a number of fires in BC this year so please be careful.

Happy Easter

I just want to take a moment to wish everyone a happy Easter weekend. Take care if you are out and about. With Spring Break and Easter combined there are lots more vehicles on the roads so drive with care.
