The Clinton Seniors Association held their Annual Daffodil Tea on Wednesday, March 18 in the Clinton Memorial Hall. In addition to the lovely strawberry shortcake there was a bake table as well as a table where one could purchase cut daffodils and/or potted mini-daffodils.
There was a very good turnout with 140 servings of cake enjoyed by those who attended as well as 40 deliveries to businesses or individuals who could not attend.
The door prize was won by Christine Rivett, and Laurie Harrison won the guessing game.
April is Daffodil Month and the Cancer Society has initiated a ‘Pin your Mayor’ campaign to kick off the month. Mayor Jim Rivett was ‘pinned’ at the Daffodil Tea. The goal of the Cancer Society is to increase the survival rate of cancer patients.
Clinton CiB Making a Difference
As you enter the Village of Clinton, whether from the north or south, you may notice a difference. The entrance signs now have solar lights to show the travelling public where they are when driving into Clinton at night.
The signs were installed by Fleinco Construction thanks to a BC Hydro Community Donation that was applied for by the Clinton CiB Committee.
Seedy Sunday Planned
The Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee is making plans for their annual Seedy Sunday for April 12.
There will be seeds and plants for sale and to trade, information displays on a number of topics, garden related items for sale, and seed cleaning. If you have seeds that need cleaning (peas, beans, corn, etc.) please bring them along and see how the winnower separates the chaff from the seeds.
A lunch of soup and bun will be available and there will be a kids activity area set up. Bring the family and get a good start to the gardening season.
For information or to book a table (at no charge) please contact Susan Swan at 250-459-2224 during regular business hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org
