Striking a Balance: Seedy Sunday was a fun day

Plus a website for the Clinton Museum, adult drawing classes, and an upcoming health care auxiliary meeting.

Seedy Sunday

The Clinton Seedy Sunday was a fun, information-filled event. In addition to the plant and seed vendors, there were a number of information tables set up with info on invasive species, including invasive plants and how to deal with them.

There were knowledgeable gardeners on hand to answer gardening questions, as well as natural products, local honey, information on helping pollinators survive, and more.

A silent auction saw a number of interesting and useful items find new homes. There was a plant and seed swap and more.

The two children who attended the kids’ activity area had fun and the lunch of soup or chili was great.

Attendance was down some this year, but those who attended all said they found it worthwhile.

The Clinton Communities in Bloom Committee was happy to raise some funds for trees and shrubs for the dog park and entrance signs areas. Thank you to all who attended.

Museum website

The Clinton Museum now has a new website.

In addition to a history of the museum, photos of some exhibits, events, projects, and archive pages, the site has a digital visitor centre. The website is fully mobile capable.
