Striking A Balance – Respect our local volunteers and the work they do

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

Monthly Foot Care Clinic

The monthly Foot Care Clinic will be held at the Clinton Seniors Centre at 217 Smith Avenue on Jan. 14 and 15. If you wish to discuss your foot care needs or you would like to book an appointment at this clinic please call 250-819-1632.

Family Fun Day

The Clinton Snow Jockey Club is hosting a Family Fun Day at the Big Bar Ski Trails on Saturday, Jan. 23 from 9 a.m. until noon.

The parking lot at the trail head is 6 km. west on Big Bar Road from Hwy 97. Bring your skis (and your friends) and enjoy the trails.

There will be prizes and lunch will be available for a modest cost.

Ski Trail Etiquette

The Big Bar Ski Trails are on Crown Land. Although they are classed as multi-use trails, everyone who uses them is asked to respect the trails and all others who use them.

The Clinton Snow Jockey Club is a volunteer organization that grooms and maintains these trails for the people who enjoy cross country skiing. Driving on the trails with vehicles and falling trees on them can ruin the trails for this use. Not only can it make skiing difficult, it can make them dangerous and someone could get hurt.

Please, if you are using the trails think of the other users as well. Help keep the trails in good condition for everyone.
