Striking a Balance – Soap Box Derby coming up

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

Water Restrictions

Clinton residents are reminded that water restrictions in the Village of Clinton continue until Sept. 15. The use of water for sprinkling lawns is prohibited between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Even numbered addresses may sprinkle Monday, Wednesday and Saturday; Odd numbered addresses may sprinkle Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. No one is allowed to sprinkle on Fridays.

Music in the Park

The last Music in the Park event for this year stars Barney Bentall on stage in the bandshell in Reg Conn Centennial Park on Saturday, Aug. 31. Start time is 7:30 p.m.

Bring your own chairs and if recent temperatures are anything to go by you will definitely want to bring a blanket.

Back to School

Where has the summer gone? It is already time for the kids (and teachers, support staff, parents, etc.) to get ready for that first day of school.

With the excitement of seeing their friends again and entering another grade with new teachers the students may not be as careful as they should be. Please drive carefully, especially around school zones.

More 150/50 Events to Come

Mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept. 21 for the Soap Box Derby. Then stay on for a spaghetti dinner where you will be entertained by a comedian at the Clinton Memorial Hall.

And we’re not done yet. There will be more 150/50 Anniversary events to come. Stay tuned!
