Striking A Balance- Fall craft sale has Clinton crafters buzzing

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

Soap Box Derby Postponed

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Clinton Soapbox Derby that had been scheduled for Sept. 12 has been postponed. It will take place some time in October. Time and date will be announced. That gives you more time to work on your entry.

I have also been told that Cache Creek has challenged Clinton in the soapbox derby so come on Clinton. Let’s show Cache Creek how it’s done!

Communities in Bloom

The Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee met earlier this week to plan new projects for the coming year while waiting to hear how they were judged this year – that will be announced at the national CiB awards banquet in early October. This year it’s being held in Kamloops!

The committee meets at noon on the first Wednesday of each month in the Clinton Council Chambers if anyone would like to join or see what this group is all about.

Fall Craft Sale

The Clinton Fall Craft Sale is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 24 in the Memorial Hall. Area crafters are asked to contact Susan Swan for information by phoning 250-459-2224 (during regular business hours or leave a message to get a return call) or by emailing sscountrysquire@gmail.com

Space is limited and previous vendors will be given first chance to book a spot.
