Striking a Balance – Long time community members sadly missed

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

Clinton Lions Club Treasurer


Family and friends gathered on Saturday, April 26 to say good bye to Bob Nystrom who passed away Nov. 8, 2013. Memories were shared as friends and former coworkers talked about Bob’s cheerfulness, his willingness to help others and his love of family, fishing and hunting.

On Saturday, May 3 another farewell, this time for long time Clinton resident Bud Cade will be held in the Clinton Memorial Hall beginning at 1 p.m.

Clinton’s Volunteer Appreciation

Are you a member of a volunteer organization, do you volunteer in the community or did you participate in the 150/50 celebrations in Clinton last year? If so you are invited to attend a volunteer appreciation and 150/50 wrap-up get together. The idea is to celebrate the success of the 150/50 celebration and all the many volunteers who continue to be part of the great community that is Clinton.

There will be refreshments served and door prizes to be won. It all happens on Saturday, May 3 at 7 p.m. in the Clinton Memorial Hall.

For more information contact Diana Geurin at (250) 459-7756.

Funky Flowerpot Challenge

The District of Lillooet has adopted Clinton’s Funky Flowerpot Contest and then challenged Clinton to have more Funky Flowerpots throughout the community than them.

This is a friendly contest between the gardeners and businesses of Lillooet and Clinton. Let’s get some spirited rivalry going and get FUNKY!

The idea is to plant something that is not normally thought of as a flowerpot. If it can hold potting soil but has some drainage it can be planted. Use your imagination. The businesses are being challenged to plant something that represents their business. Make it a feature! The visitors will love it and residents will get a greater sense of pride in their community.

Deadline for entries is July 12. So come on Clinton, let’s put some FUN into the FUNKY Flowerpot Contest and show Lillooet how it’s done!
