The Clinton Museum was the perfect venue for a historic event on Wednesday, Nov. 21 when Village of Clinton Mayor Jim Rivett and Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band Chief Michael Lebourdais signed a Protocol Agreement on co-operation and communication.

The Village and First Nation Band have shown a commitment to a continuing working relationship that is built on co-operation and trust between the two parties. Their hope is to strengthen this relationship over time by the implementation of joint actions and partnerships on economic growth, servicing facilities, and exploring future options for the betterment of the broader community of the greater Clinton area and the residents of both parties.

Following the signing of the Protocol by both parties, Chief Lebourdais presented Mayor Rivett with a copy of an out-of-print book entitled Shuswap Stories to be kept in the museum.

On hand at the proceedings from the Whispering Pines/Clinton Indian Band were Chief Michael Lebourdais, Coun. Ed Lebourdais, Coun. Jack Bones, Viola Lebourdais from Administration and family members Charlotte Lebourdais and Tiffany Dick.

Present from the Village of Clinton were Mayor Jim Rivett, Coun. Diana Guerin, Coun. Susan Swan, Village CAO Tom Dall, Office Assistant June Bourgo and South Cariboo Museum Society President Lynn Shook.

Following the signing of the Protocol Agreement refreshments were served and the visitors had an opportunity to explore some of the displays in the museum.
