Community Hall Septic System Needs Your Help!

Community Hall Septic System Needs Your Help!

We have set up a  GoFundMe page to replace our failed septic system. Click Here.    Thank you to all the wonderful community members who have donated. We’ve reached the two-thirds point of our goal! Let your friends and neighbors know of this critical need and we’ll make our funding goal. We’re looking forward to being fully functional again to serve our community. It was a sad day when the inspector told us the 65-year-old septic system at the Hall had failed. The drain field is likely under the asphalt parking lot and the tanks and pipes we can see have begun to disintegrate and are not up to code. Without a fully functioning septic system, we cannot use the toilet nor the kitchen facilities.  In the interim, we have port-a-potties on site for bathroom use, but the kitchen is off limits for now. We have a plan for our new septic system and waiting on county approval to move forward. We expect installation to begin very soon. Our fundraising goal is $15,000. We’ve passed the halfway point. Help us reach the goal! Or if you prefer to donate by check you can mail to: PO Box 612, Clinton WA 98236   Payable to: Clinton Progressive Association. We realize we are in the midst of our Annual Membership Drive, and it’s a hard time to ask for additional money.  However, we are confident our community will rally around to help the Clinton Community Hall get back to full capacity. The Clinton Progressive Association is a non-profit 501 c 3 that owns and maintains the Clinton Community Hall. Donors will receive a tax receipt for your...
Civil Conversations in an Angry Age

Civil Conversations in an Angry Age

At what point does a conversation become a battle? Why do some opinions inflame our emotions, leading to anger, fights, and even the end of relationships with family and friends? Philosopher David E. Smith takes a deep look at those moments when civility breaks down. By mapping the structure of how we converse, and digging into the root causes of both civility and incivility, Smith explores how we can have meaningful, respectful conversations on notoriously difficult topics like politics, religion, and morality. In our increasingly polarized political environment, Smith provides participants with the tools needed to embark upon more thoughtful, fruitful discussions. David Smith holds a PhD in religious studies from Temple University. For the past decade he has held roles as a lecturer, assistant professor, and associate professor of philosophy and religious studies. He currently teaches at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Washington and frequently gives lectures in libraries, community centers, and retirement centers. This event is part of Humanities Washington and is hosted by the Clinton...
