The drizzling rain did little to dampen the spirits of the 32 participants in the 150/50 Run-Walk on June 8.
With participants not only from Clinton but also from Cache Creek, Ashcroft and even one from Kamloops, the 5-km run-walk / 10-km run was a great success.
Organizer, Roland Higginbottom was pleased with the turnout for this first-time event. All proceeds will benefit the food bank.
CiB in Planting Mode
Members of the Clinton CiB Committee have been busy around Clinton planting flowerbeds and containers to brighten up the community.
Five committee members and two volunteers from the neighbourhood planted the desert circle planters in the park, as well as the big circular bed on Wednesday evening. Prior to that three volunteers had planted the desert planters by the entrance signs at both ends of town. Then on Saturday three members planted the four large hanging baskets and the flowerbed at the Village Office.
With the help of a Trees Canada donation, CiB and the Village of Clinton the Clinton Seniors Association finally have their tree. Several years ago the Seniors had planted a tree in Reg Conn Park but it subsequently was damaged and did not survive. They have been asking for a replacement tree ever since.
With the help of Karl Hansen, Public Works a “Sensation Red Maple” was planted. Overseeing the Project were Seniors Association members Helene Cade, Alice Crosson and Zee Chevalier with Yvette May representing Clinton Communities in Bloom. The ladies are very pleased with the tree and can now take it off their action item.
