CLINTON CANADA DAY FLAG-RAISING PARTY: (from l) Const. Jeff McMichaels

Village restriction limits watering time in Clinton

Watering restrictions, plus the Communities in Bloom judges are on their way.

Funmobile coming to Clinton

The Bring Back Play Funmoble will be in Clinton on Thurs., July 17 from 4:30 to 5:30 in Reg Conn Centennial Park. Bring the kids and come out and play unplugged!

Water restrictions

The extreme heat has prompted the Village of Clinton to restrict water sprinkling beginning Mon., July 14. Even-numbered properties are allowed to water on even-numbered days, and odd-numbered properties can water on odd-numbered days. There is to be NO watering between 11:00 am and 7:00 pm until further notice.

Community cleanup

The Community Cleanup Campaign that was promoted by the Village and the Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee seems to have had an effect. Many properties have been tidied up and are looking much better. Even the main street has been getting a boost, with some storefronts being given a new façade or coat of paint.

The traveling public has noticed. There have been many comments on how good the village is looking. If a community looks successful people are more likely to want to live there. The Village of Clinton is looking good.

The judges are coming

The Communities in Bloom national judges are coming to evaluate Clinton beginning Sun., July 20 and continuing through Monday the 21st.

The judges this year are Steve Preston, retired from the City of Brampton Parks and Recreation Dept., and Gail Pearcey, President of Friends of Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Botanical Garden, St. John’s, NL.

They will be picked up in Kamloops on Sunday and given a brief driving tour of Clinton before attending a meet-and-greet potluck cold plate dinner at the Clinton Memorial Hall at 6:00 pm. The Clinton CiB Committee invites residents of Clinton and area to come and meet the judges. Please bring your favourite salad or dessert to share.

On Mon., July 21 the two judges will be toured around sites in Clinton, including the new waterworks, West Fraser Mill, parks, cemeteries, community garden, Eco Depot, and more. Contrary to what some people think, CiB is not just about flowers. It is about all aspects of the community. The Committee members hope to show the judges what Clinton is all about.

The results of the judges’ evaluation will not be known until the CiB Conference in the fall.
