Striking A Balance – PAC dinner and auction fundraiser next week

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

TOPS

If you are looking to lose a few pounds before the holiday season then you are welcome to drop in to the Clinton Health Centre on Thursday mornings at 9:30 to join the TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) group. They can give you encouragement and help you get on track with your weight loss program.

Foot Clinic

There will be a foot clinic at the Clinton Seniors Centre at 217 Smith Ave. on Friday, Nov. 13 and Saturday, Nov. 14. Appointments are required and can be made by phoning 250-819-1632.

PAC Meeting

The regular David Stoddart School PAC meeting will be held on Monday, Nov. 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the school library. Again all parents of children in the school are encouraged to get involved. Come to the meeting and see what your PAC does for the students.

Christmas Hamper Applications

Any Clinton area resident that wishes to apply for a Christmas Food Hamper can do so at the Clinton Health Centre on Nov. 16 or 19 from 2-4 p.m.

Council Meeting

Due to the Remembrance Day holiday the Village of Clinton Council meetings will be the first and third Wednesday in November instead of the second and fourth. So the next regular meeting of Council will be on Wednesday, Nov. 18.

DSS PAC Dinner and Auction

The Auction and Dinner that the DSS PAC puts on will be held on Saturday, Nov. 21 in the Clinton Memorial Hall. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. and the live auction starts at 7pm. A silent auction will be ongoing throughout the evening.

Tickets are available at David Stoddart School, Clinton Home Building Center, Integris Credit Union and Country Squire Gift Shop.

Anyone wishing to donate to either the live auction or silent auction or who wishes for more information can call 250-459-2219 or 250-459-2379.

The funds raised are used for the extras for the Clinton students. In the past these funds have paid for class trips, computer programs, sports equipment and more.

Legion Christmas Craft Fair

The Clinton Legion, Branch 194 is hosting a Christmas Craft Fair in the Legion basement from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5. Any crafter wishing to book a table can call 250-459-2731.

Clinton Building Centre Recognized

The Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee entered the Clinton Home Building Centre in the CiB Home Hardware Dealer Involvement Contest.

Although the Home Hardware Dealer of the Year Award went to the Windsor Home Hardware in Windsor, Nova Scotia, the Clinton Home Building Centre was one of five winners of the $100 Home Hardware Gift Cards. They were the only winners in the contest in B.C.

The Clinton Home Building Centre then very generously gave two $50 gift cards to the Clinton CiB Committee to be used as prizes in the Annual Christmas Light Up Contest. The CiB Committee wishes to thank the building centre for their continued support of CiB.

Clinton Light Up Contest

The Clinton CiB Committee will once again sponsor the Christmas Light Up Contest in the Clinton area. A panel of judges will be touring the community to view the lights and make their decision.

The date of the actual judging will be announced at a later date, as they want to ensure it does not conflict with other activities in the community. (Last year the judging was the same night as the school concert and many residents neglected to turn on their Christmas lights prior to going to the concert.)

As mentioned above, there will be two prizes, one each for best residential display and best commercial display. These will be a $50 gift card for each from the Clinton Home Building Centre.
