Striking a Balance – More fun in the snow

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

Family Day

I hope you all had an enjoyable day on BC’s First Family Day. Unfortunately I had to work and was not able to attend any of the Family Day activities being held in Clinton.

Although this was a Provincial holiday many places were still open for business. This included many privately owned businesses, our Refuse Transfer Station and even Canada Post and other Federal businesses. Not everyone has the luxury of taking off this holiday.

Perhaps next year more people will be able to take advantage of this day that was created so people could spend more time with family.

Ice Fishing Derby

Sunday, Feb. 17 will see Beaverdam Lake dotted with fishermen (and women) vying for the big prize in the Clinton and District Outdoor Sportsmen Association Ice Fishing Derby.

The event runs from daylight until noon. There is a $10 fee to enter but all monies raised will be paid back in prizes.

This is a 150/50 Anniversary event celebrating the naming and incorporation of the Village of Clinton. Come out and have fun!

Full Moon Ski Run

The Clinton Snow Jockey Club is hosting a full-moon ski run starting from the ski trailhead on Tuesday, Feb. 26 beginning in the evening. Those taking part are asked to park in the parking lot on Big Bar Road, 6 km off Hwy 97.

For more information you can call Jennifer at 250-459-2649 or Rolly at 250-459-2487.
