The Volunteer Appreciation Night at Clinton Memorial Hall on May 3 was well-attended in spite of several events happening on the weekend.

The original intent of the event was to recognize the participation and hard work of those who had contributed to Clinton’s very successful 150/50 Anniversary celebrations in 2013, but it was expanded to recognize all volunteers regardless of whether they had participated in the events of 2013.

The Village of Clinton has traditionally had an annual volunteer recognition event.

Village chief administrative officer Tom Dall prepared a slide show on the big screen with photos of the 60-plus events held in 2013.

Mayor Jim Rivett opened the evening by paying tribute to the many volunteers in Clinton in approximately 40 organizations and thanking them for their valuable contributions throughout the year. He then called on Councillor Diane Guerin who explained the 150/50 Anniversary Committee had been renamed Spirit of Clinton Committee and hoped to capitalize on the momentum created by the success of the 2013 events with events in 2014 to enhance Clinton’s tourism appeal.

Refreshments were served by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #194-Clinton Ladies Auxiliary, and throughout the evening, Guerin drew numbers for door prizes.
