Firefighters Recognized

Two members of the Clinton Volunteer Fire Department were recognized and a third mentioned at the Annual Village of Clinton Christmas Party. Dustin Engelhart and Mark Swan were each presented with their ‘five-year’ pin and Morgan Walch was mentioned as being a five-year member before he retired from the department in July.

Mayor Jim Rivett and Coun. Wayne Marchant commended all the local responders for the great work they do for the community. On hand with the Village Council and staff were members of the fire department and BC Ambulance. Invited but unable to attend were members of the Clinton RCMP Detachment.

The Grad class of 2016 (and their parent helpers) provided a delicious meal for the occasion.

Legion Christmas Sale

The Clinton Legion Branch 194 will host a Christmas Craft Sale in the basement of the Legion on Saturday, Dec. 5 beginning at 10 a.m.

They invite everyone to drop by and pick up some Christmas baking, crafts, etc. and enjoy a soup and bun lunch.
