December 12 / Previous page

Last week’s storm kept the Chamber office closed until Wednesday this week, because I couldn’t get to town. Hopefully, this next storm will be a bit kinder to all of us!

December 13th & 14th Events at the park have been postponed again due to bad weather. The lights are still up for all of us to enjoy, but the areas are very muddy, so use caution if visiting the park. Cross your fingers for better weather for next weekend!

December 18th & 19th – Angel Tree gift distribution begins! This year we have signed up over 700 children – and counting. There are still Angels on trees around the area, so it’s not too late to help a child smile on Christmas day. Please bring your wrapped gifts to the Chamber, the Edward Jones office, or the location where purchases were made ASAP.

And, of course, monetary donations to Angel Tree Program are accepted year round. All donations for this program STAY in Van Buren County to support the children of this area. Donate via our website under “Angel Tree” or send a donation to Clinton Chamber of Commerce, 290 Main Street Clinton, AR 72031 & make the check out to Angel Tree Program. Thank you!

December 20th & 21st:
Not too late for reservations for the Madrigal Feast of food, music and entertainment at 6 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church in Edgemont (on Hwy 16) presented by an ecumenical choir from Fairfield Bay. Tickets are $15. Call 501-253-1216 for reservations. Benefit for Lutheran local, regional and worldwide missions.

Holiday Decoration Contest judging is underway, winners to be announced next week. In the meantime, get out & see all the lights – Clinton is shining in spite of all the snow & ice!

Stay safe and warm.
