Contra Dancing – Saturday July 7th

Contra Dancing – Saturday July 7th

Live music! Lively dancing! Friendly Folks!  All ages welcome. Contra Dancing is a wonderful community event. No experience necessary. Just bring your desire to learn some simple dance steps and be part of the new Whidbey Island Contra Dance movement! New start time: 6:30 pm. A suggested donation of $10 will help pay for the band, the caller, and the hall. Bring a snack to share if you can. During the first half hour the caller will teach the steps you need to know to be right in the swing of the contra dance scene on Whidbey. Organized by Whidbey Island contra dance enthusiasts and co-sponsored by the Clinton Community Hall. Just come on down to the Clinton Community Hall and let’s dance!...
Pancake Breakfast!

Pancake Breakfast!

Oh, yeah! Pancakes, bacon, eggs, and fruit with friends and neighbors on Saturday morning. How can you beat that? Chef Chris Patterson will be serving up a hearty breakfast with gluten-free options, of course. Then join the community-minded folks (aka Clinton Community Council and friends) for a Dan Porter Park clean up after breakfast.  They will assemble with their gloves, hand tools, and a truckload of community spirit at 10 am to beautify the park.  As they say, many hands make light work. And, it just feels good to pitch in for your community....
Books, Books and more Books.

Books, Books and more Books.

Contra Dancing this Saturday!

Contra Dancing this Saturday!

If you didn’t get enough dancing at Mayfest (even if you did!) then come on down to the Clinton Community Hall this Saturday night with your dancing shoes on.  Contra dancing is similar to square dancing but with couples in long lines and without the flouncy skirts my mother would wear to square dances.  There’s live music and a caller who teaches the dance combinations at the beginning of the evening. 6 – 10 pm… Suggested donation of $10 to pay the musicians, the caller and renting the hall. Hope to see you...
Mayfest 2018 a great success!

Mayfest 2018 a great success!

Mayfest 2018 was by all measure a great success! We offer a huge THANK YOU to our wonderful Clinton community for your support of the Hall. We heard enthusiastic compliments on the dinner buffet – Congratulations to Chef Chris Patterson and his crew!  The Heggenes Valley Boys once again were stellar…bringing their energy and creative spirit to the music and dancing. We were delighted to feature Clinton purveyors of beer (Ogres Brewery) and wine (Spoiled Dog Winery). Kudos to Doe Starr, Deer Creek Studio, for the beautiful and festive wall hangings and table coverings. And, the volunteers that kept the coffee pots filled, washed the dishes, mopped the floors and kept the evening running smoothly. And of course, the financial support of our generous business sponsors makes this event possible. Please patronize our sponsors throughout the year! Thank you to all who joined us for Mayfest 2018!  We loved hosting such a joyful and spirited gathering of friends and neighbors....
