Striking A Balance – Integris Insurance gets photo capability

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

Integris Insurance Fully Automated

After years of trying to get photo services in their office, Integris Insurance Services is now fully automated for driver services.

The public can now come in for their driver’s licence renewal, BCID, BC Services Card and have their photo taken on site. Previously, although one could renew their licence in Clinton photographs had to be taken at other locations, as Integris did not have these services.

Lobbying by Integris and Village of Clinton Council to ICBC paid off bringing one more service to the community.

The Learning Curve

The Learning Curve, a Community Adult Literacy Program is holding a Grand Opening from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28.

The program is set up in the meeting room of the High Bar First Nation Office in the former United Church Thrift Shop area.

Everyone is invited to drop in and see what programs and courses are offered. There will be snacks, games, prizes and story time.

You are invited to bring one (or more) used books to donate to the centre.

Volunteer Recognition

A Volunteer Recognition Reception and Citizen of the Year Award will be held beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28 in the Clinton Memorial Hall.

Volunteers work hard to make our community better for us all. Visit with some of these volunteers and hear about projects, events, etc. that they do. You may find a group or organization that interests you. Most groups in the community would welcome new members.

In addition to learning about various organizations, the Citizen of the Year for 2014 will be announced.

Refreshments will be available and MLA Jackie Tegart and members of the Village of Clinton Council will be on hand.

Minor Hockey Fun Day

There will be a Clinton Minor Hockey Fun Day at the 47 Mile Sports Complex (Clinton arena) on Sunday, March 1 from 3-5 p.m.

Clinton Minor Hockey members, ages 5 – 18 will be playing a game of hockey. Come out and cheer them on. Show support for the local hockey players.

The Concession will be open during this event.
