Daffodil Tea

The Clinton Seniors’ Association Annual Daffodil Tea on March 9 was a great success. Strawberry shortcake was enjoyed by all, and the cut and potted daffodils sold out quickly. The bake table was also popular. At the end of the day everything was sold out.

The entire event was a great chance to socialize and enjoy the company of others. A portion of the funds raised goes to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Fire Department open house

The open house at the Clinton Fire Department was very well attended on March 12. Members were on hand to explain apparatus, equipment, etc. to interested visitors.

Photos of past major fires in the Village, parades, Canada Day celebrations, and more were on display.

Attendees were treated to refreshments, including a cake to mark the occasion. This was also a time to honour retiring firefighter and former Chief Robin Fennell, who is hanging up his hat after serving 30 years in the department.

Thank you for your service to the community, Robin, and enjoy your gift from the department: a weekend at Echo Valley Guest Ranch.

Community Forest AGM

The Clinton and District Community Forest of BC Ltd. will hold their annual general meeting on Thursday, March 17 from 6:00 to 9:00pm in the Clinton Memorial Hall.

Clinton Council meetings

Meetings of the Village of Clinton Council are held in the Council Chambers in the Village Office building on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month beginning at 7:00pm.

Members of the public are always welcome to attend, and there is an opportunity to make comments or ask questions about items on the agenda at every meeting.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!
