Striking A Balance – Health Care Auxiliary needs new members

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

Minor Hockey AGM

The Clinton Minor Hockey Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday, Feb. 13 at 6 p.m. at 7598 Lagoon Court Road. New members are welcome.

PAC Monthly Meeting

The Parent Advisory Council to David Stoddart School meets the third Monday of every month.

All parents of children in David Stoddart School are welcome to attend the meetings.  The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, Feb. 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the school library.

Pancake Brunch

Tuesday, Feb. 17 is Shrove Tuesday. The members of St. Peter’s Catholic Church invite the public to a Pancake Brunch from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Legion basement.

Drop in for traditional pancakes, eggs, sausages, coffee, etc. for a nominal fee.

Health Care Auxiliary Needs Help

The Clinton Health Care Auxiliary is dwindling in numbers. This group does fund raising in order to purchase items for the Clinton Regional Health and Wellness Center. In addition they offer a bursary to any graduating Clinton student who is entering post secondary health related studies. In the past they have also donated to projects at Royal Inland Hospital and to the Clinton Volunteer Fire Department for Highway Rescue equipment.

As is the case with many volunteer groups the members are aging out and/or burning out. If this organization is to continue more people must step up to help.

The Clinton Health Care Auxiliary Annual General Meeting will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 at the Clinton Health Center. Drop in and see what they are all about before committing to joining their ranks. They would welcome some new people with new ideas.

New Time Clock for Arena

The staff of Integris Credit Union and Insurance is working to raise funds to replace the outdated and non-functioning time clock at the 47 Mile Sports Complex (Clinton Arena).

They hope that community businesses, organizations and individuals will be willing to donate towards the cost of a new clock (which could cost up to $15,000). The new clock could last the lifetime of the arena if properly maintained.

Different levels of sponsorship are available based on the amount donated. The names of those who donate, regardless of the amount, would be advertised on a plaque in the arena once the new clock is installed. The goal is to have the new clock installed for the arena start up in the fall of 2015.

If you would like to contribute or have a fundraising idea you are asked to stop by the Clinton Integris Branch or phone 250-459-2301 or 250-459-2173 for more information.
