Striking a Balance – Gardners getting ready

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

Pancake Brunch

The members of St. Peter’s Catholic Church welcomed approximately 60 people to their annual Pancake Brunch on Feb. 12.

Attendees enjoyed pancakes, eggs and sausages on the traditional Shrove Tuesday.

Seedy Saturday

A group of eager gardeners travelled from Clinton to Lillooet on Saturday, Feb. 16 to attend a Seedy Saturday event.

They enjoyed the variety of heirloom and heritage seeds and seed potatoes available for sale or by donation as well as the information gleaned from other avid gardeners.

It was a great way to spend a rainy Saturday in February.

Happy Birthday, Emily

Family members, friends and former students of Emily Dillabough gathered in the Legion basement on Sunday, Feb. 17 to wish a happy 85th birthday to Emily Dillabough.

She was a teacher for years in Clinton and many of her former students were delighted to offer their best wishes.
