Striking A Balance – Clinton’s winners chosen

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

Christmas Light Up

On Tuesday, Dec. 15 three members of the Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee were chauffeured through out all of Clinton to view the Christmas lights and decorations. There were a lot of them, even more than previous years.

Although the original plan had been to pick the best residential and the best commercial displays, the judges felt that since there were no outstanding commercial ones they would instead award two residential awards.

After much deliberation they decided that the winners this year are Rebekah and Dallas Bowen on Elliot Park Road and Helen and Willie Prevost on Foster Avenue. Each will receive a $50 Home Hardware Gift Card.

Honourable mentions include the displays of Wayne and Sheryl Walch on Hwy 97, the Stanke’s on Carson Street, Schapansky’s on Cariboo Avenue, and the Joel McColl property and Amanda and Trevor Nelson property, both on Lagoon Court. It is always nice to see the Buis’ big tree lit up. It can be seen from all over town. As well this year, the lights at Skookum Horse high on the hill added to the festive look.

Congratulations to all who took the time to decorate and make the community so festive and inviting. If you haven’t had a chance to get out and view the lights yet, take the time. It is well worth it.

Merry Christmas and all the best to all in 2016!
