Striking a balance: Wayne Walch honoured for fire service

Clinton Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Wayne Walch has been honoured for 30 years of service to the department.

Grand Opening concert

There was a good turnout on Monday, December 5 for the Village of Clinton’s “Grand Opening Concert” to showcase the improvements at the Clinton Memorial Hall.

With the help of grants, the sound and lighting systems were upgraded, and curtains were added to the stage. A staircase to the basement under the stage was installed, making this a usable space for a “green room”, costume changing area, and storage.

Representatives from Lee’s Music in Kamloops did the light and sound installation and were on hand, along with several performers (one from Kamloops and the rest locals), to show off the equipment. The crowd was treated to songs, instrumentals, and dance.

The hall can now host events of all kinds with state of the art acoustics and lighting. Thanks to Lee’s Music, the entertainers, the grant money providers, and the Village of Clinton for making it a fun evening.

Thirty years of service

Clinton Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Wayne Walch was presented with his 30-year service pin at the Village of Clinton Christmas Party on December 9. Walch was thanked for his years of dedication and service to the community.

Children’s Christmas party

The Clinton Legion will be the scene of “controlled chaos” on the afternoon of Sunday, December 18 as the Legion hosts the annual children’s Christmas party in the Legion basement.

All Clinton area children aged 10 and under who have pre-registered for the party are welcome.

Christmas Light-up

The Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee will have judges touring the village on Sunday, December 18 beginning at 7 p.m. to check out the Christmas lights and displays.

Please make sure you have your lights on. There will be prizes for the best residential and best commercial display.
