Two old spruce trees in front of the Clinton Village Office were removed recently.

Striking a Balance – Not enough curlers in Clinton

Weekly roundup of community news and events in Clinton.

Farmers Market closes

The final Clinton Farmers Market for the 2012 season was held on Thursday, Oct. 11 with four vendors in attendance.

The Market will reopen in May of 2013.

No Curling in Clinton

The Clinton Curling Club AGM was held last week with disappointing results. Unfortunately there were not enough members signed up for curling this year to even start up the ice. Therefore the members have had to make the decision to suspend curling in Clinton for the 2012/2013 season.

Annual Craft Sale

The Clinton CiB Garden Club members will host their  Annual Fall Craft Sale on Sat., Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Clinton Memorial Hall.

This is a great opportunity to get a jump-start on your Christmas shopping. There will be at least 20 vendors in attendance with a wide variety of goods.

This is the major fund raising event that the CiB Garden Club puts on to raise funds needed for hosting the CiB judges, community BBQ, etc. Come and support their efforts.

Main Street with a difference

Anyone travelling through Clinton these days may notice a big change in front of the Village Office and Museum. Two large fir trees that had been trimmed numerous times in the past were removed last week.

BC Hydro had ordered the trimming in previous years as the trees had grown into the hydro lines. The side next to the highway was drastically trimmed leaving all the weight on the side next to the two buildings.

In an effort to prevent the trees from coming down onto the buildings council made the decision to have the trees removed. BC Hydro was contacted and they agreed to take them down. Village Public Work staff cleared the brush and logs from the lot.

The removal of the trees leaves a blank slate for landscaping plans. Watch for changes in the spring.
