Striking A Balance- Seedy Sundays and other Elegant Desserts

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

Elegant Dessert Party

The Clinton Health Care Auxiliary members are busy preparing for the Elegant Dessert Party on Sunday, April 6 at 7 p.m. in the Clinton Memorial Hall.

In addition to a variety of sumptuous desserts there will be a 50/50 draw, door prize and a prize for the best hat. There will also be a couple of entertaining skits to tickle your funny bone.

This is open to both men and women so get your tickets and enjoy a fun and delicious evening. Tickets are available from Auxiliary members and at Country Squire Gift Shop ($10 each).

The funds raised by this group go toward health related items. In the past they have purchased items for the Clinton Health and Wellness Centre, donated to the Clinton Fire Department rescue equipment, a bursary for a graduating student who is going into the medical field and items for Royal Inland Hospital and more. This is their major fundraiser of the year.

Traditional Bean Supper

The Clinton Legion Ladies Auxiliary Traditional Annual Bean Supper will be held on Wednesday, April 9 from 5-7 p.m. in the Clinton Memorial Hall.

Come out and support the L.A. while enjoying homemade beans, baked ham, scalloped potatoes, coleslaw and delicious pies.

Tickets may be purchased at the door, $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12.

Seedy Sunday

The Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee has been hard at work organizing a Seedy Sunday for April 13.

Come out for all things relating to gardens and gardening from 10-3 at the Memorial Hall. There will be seed and plant sales, seed cleaning (winnower on site), garden books and magazines available, displays and demos, door prizes and activities for the children. Lunch will also be available on site.

Even though it has not felt much like spring to date we know it will come and so will gardening. So come out and get your garden fix and have some fun.

Admission is FREE so load up the car with some friends and come to Seedy Sunday.
