I need your help

If you—or a group or organization to which you belong—are planning an event or activity that you want the public to know of, please let me know. Too often I learn about something that was happening after the fact.

I want to be able to let people know what is happening in our community, and if I am able to attend to take photos and/or do a write-up I will do my best to be there. Clinton is a very happening place. Let’s let others know what is going on.

You can contact me by phone at (250) 459-2224, email me at, or drop info off at Country Squire Gift Shop. As we prepare for events to commemorate Canada’s 150th and the 150th anniversary of the Clinton Annual Ball, let’s share our news!
