Clinton Mayor Jim Rivett and Councillor Wayne Marchant attended the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal Ceremony in Kamloops on Oct. 10 where Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod, presented medals to Clinton residents Rita Welsh and Robin Fennell for their ideals and devotion to service.

Robin Fennell has served two terms as a Village Councillor and one term as Mayor, is a longstanding member of the Volunteer Fire Department where he also served as the Chief. He was lead organizer of the Clinton Jamboree, a volunteer director for the Integris Credit Union, has served as president and trail-groomer for the Snow Jockeys X-Country Skiing Club. He served on the executive for many years of the Curling club.  Robin is currently the president of the Clinton and District Edonomic Development Society and the head of Gold Country, and serves on the Clinton Community Forest Committee.
