Striking A Balance – Eat, dance and watch your money closely

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

RCMP Community BBQ

The Clinton RCMP members invited the community to a Community Barbecue at the Clinton Detachment on Tues., Aug. 12.

For two hours, RCMP members, staff and Mayor Jim Rivett flipped burgers and hotdogs for the crowd who showed up. Bags of chips, drinks and chocolate cake rounded out the menu.

The youngsters had a great time drawing on the paved parking lot with coloured chalk. There was a great turnout for this free event.

This was the first BBQ of this kind that the detachment has held but with the positive response from the community it may not be the last.

Zumba in Clinton?

A licensed Zumba fitness instructor from Cache Creek is asking if there is interest in having Zumba in Clinton one or two evenings a week.

She would start at beginner level and ages 12 and up are welcome! She says, “Ask your friends! And never think you are too old! My 86 year old grandmother did it! If I get enough people ZUMBA fitness will be coming to your town!”

So Clinton, do you want to take part in a fun way to get in shape? If so she needs to know as soon as possible, so for the sake of convenience, please let me know as soon as possible and I will pass your names on to her. You can phone me at 250-459-2224 (leave a message with your name and phone number if I don’t answer – day time phone!) or email me at Depending on the nights this happens I will definitely be taking part if enough people sign up for it.

Scam Alert

A friend recently got an email that looked like it was from RBC, asking her to log into her online banking and verify her password within 24 hours.

This IS a scam. If you receive this message DO NOT fall for it. Your bank will never ask for this type of information by email. Phone your bank to verify before you open anything that looks like it is from them.
