Striking A Balance – Clinton Council gets the Ice Bucket treatment

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

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The Clinton RCMP Detachment accepted the challenge, dowsed them selves with ice water and then nominated the Mayor, Council and CAO of Clinton (or as they called them ‘The Village People’) to do the challenge.

Wednesday, Aug. 27 at High Noon (is there a Low Noon?) Mayor Jim Rivett, Councillors Diana Geurin, Wayne Marchant, David Park, Susan Swan and CAO Tom Dall will get ‘iced’ in front of the Village Office.

As their part in the challenge, they will also be nominating someone to take part in the challenge. Who will it be? You’ll have to wait for it!

Council Meeting

The regular meeting of the Village of Clinton Council is on Wednesday, Aug. 27 beginning at 7 p.m.

Members of the public are always welcome to attend the regular council meetings. There is an opportunity to question or comment on items on the agenda.

Anyone who is considering running for council may find it beneficial to sit in on a few council meetings prior to making the commitment to run.

Music in the Park

The final Music in the Park event will be held on Sat.,, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m. in Reg Conn Centennial Park.

The Cryin’ Cowboys will keep you entertained. Bring a chair and you may want to bring along a blanket as well in case it turns cold. It does cool off as soon as the sun sets.

As in the past, this event is brought to us by the Spirit of Clinton Committee.
