Striking a Balance – Deck the halls with Victorian lace

Clinton groups plan to celebrate a Victorian Christmas season.

Clinton Council Meetings

The next regular meeting of the Village of Clinton Council will be on Wednesday, Nov. 28. Due to the holidays there will only be one council meeting in December on Wednesday, Dec. 12. All Clinton Council meetings begin at 7 pm.

Council meetings are held in Council Chambers in the Municipal Building and are open to the public.

Victorian Christmas Celebration

Queen Victoria knew how to make an era! She was a fashion and cultural icon whose rule of the British Empire from 1837 to 1901 influenced art and design for decades. By the later half of the 19th Century, the opulence and prosperity crossed the Atlantic and ushered in the Gilded Age of North America.

Is there a more fitting time to rekindle the pageantry and romanticism of the era than during the holidays? Before we all hunker down for the snowy winter season, on Dec. 8, the Village of Clinton is hosting one last community gathering – our first annual Victorian Christmas Celebration.

Events will include the annual Clinton Merchant Madness Sale all day Saturday, Dec. 8th at all participating businesses; the Museum will be decorated and open; a Skate with Santa; Christmas Tea at the Seniors Centre; lighting of the Village Christmas Tree; and the Bethel Pentecostal Church Christmas Banquet. On Sunday, Dec. 9th the Legion will hold their Annual Children’s Christmas Party.

Crime Watch AGM

The 47 Mile Area E Rural Crime Watch Annual General Meeting is scheduled for 7 pm on Thursday, Dec. 13 in the Clinton Library.

This is a great opportunity for area residents to join the Crime Watch and bring to the table any issues, concerns and suggestions. Help answer the question, “What is the future of our Program?”.

If you have any questions please call Jim Walch at 250-459-2357 or Bob Craig at 250-456-2375.
