Clinton Earns Four Blooms
The Village of Clinton earned four out of a possible five blooms in the Communities in Bloom National Competition. They also got a special mention for their Funky Flowerpots. The announcement was made in Ottawa at the CiB National Symposium on Saturday, Oct. 26.
Clinton CiB Committee member, Yvette May was on hand for the announcement and phoned the results to Clinton. The Clinton CiB Committee members are very happy with the results and are already making plans for 2014.
The Clinton CiB Committee also wishes to congratulate the Village of Ashcroft for winning the CiB National Competition in their category.
Fall Craft Sale
The Clinton CiB Fall Craft Sale has come and gone for another year. With 25 tables of vendors there was a good variety of hand-crafted items and/or baking to choose from. Savvy shoppers found items to give as gifts or for themselves.
Most vendors were pleased with sales and some have even booked space for next year.
As the organizer of this event I would like to thank everyone who donated food items to our concession and those who helped set up the hall and clean up afterwards. Thanks you to the committee members who ran the concession and/or manned the Clinton CiB table. We are helping people get a clearer view of what CiB is all about.
Halloween in Clinton
The Clinton Recreation Commission will host a costume judging and goblin warm up in the Clinton Memorial Hall from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Halloween evening.
The little ones can come in out of the cold and warm up with hot chocolate and hot dogs, have their costumes judged and prizes awarded before heading to Reg Conn Centennial Park to enjoy the fireworks. Fireworks begin at 8 p.m. and will run approximately half on hour.
With donations from several sponsors of the 150/50 Anniversary, the Clinton VFD were able to purchase fireworks for the enjoyment of residents and visitors. The VFD members volunteer their time to do this, so thank you to them for giving up their Halloween evening to help the rest of us have a good time.
Variety – The Children’s Charity
November 8 is promising to be a fun time for all who attend the fundraiser and entertainment evening to raise funds for Variety – The Children’s Charity (formerly known as the Variety Club).
Those entertaining have been practising and the organizers have been busy rounding up donations for the silent and live auctions.
Mark your calendar and make plans to attend. As the organizers say, “Let’s be the Little Village with a big heart that could”.
