Striking a Balance – Curling returns to Clinton this winter

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

Curling in Clinton

Well, it looks like there will be curling in Clinton this winter. A meeting on Oct. 8 resulted in (barely) enough people to make it possible to keep it going.

The Clinton Curling Club advises that more curlers are welcome. Even if you have never curled before there are enough experienced curlers to teach novices.

Their notices around town said (in part), “Drop the remote, get off the couch. Come and Meet new people, learn a new sport, or just dust off the old stuff (if you have curled before but not for a while).”

If you want to curl but didn’t make it to the meeting contact Marian Nelson (at the Clinton Post Office) or Brenda McKay (at Integris CU) and let them know you are interested.

Annual Fall Craft Show

There are still a couple of tables available for the Fifth Annual Fall Craft Sale in Clinton. It is on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Contact Susan at 250-459-2224 if you would like to display your handmade items there, or email sscountrysquire@gmail.com or get a registration form at Country Squire Gift Shop.

Halloween Activities

Oct. 26 the Legion is hosting a Halloween Dance in the Clinton Memorial Hall. Put on your costume and plan to have a scary good time. Tickets available from the Legion.

On Oct. 31 the children are invited to the annual Children’s Halloween Party at the Memorial Hall beginning at 6 p.m. Games, contests, treats, etc. await the little ghouls.

Also on Oct. 31, the Clinton Volunteer Fire Department will be on hand for fireworks in Reg Conn Centennial Park. This year it is funded by the 150/50 Committee as part of the anniversary events.
