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.

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.
