Saturday was another busy and exciting day in Clinton. The day started with the 5K run/walk that was sponsored by the OAHS/Clinton Clinic, Essentia Health Care of Graceville and the Clinton Women’s Civic Club. This is an annual event that is a fund raiser for the CGB Track Team! We had about 118 runners/walkers so it was a great turnout!!
Following the 5K, there was a 3 on 3 basketball tournament that I watched for a while and then it was off to get ready for the Alumni brunch and All-School reunion. It was such an awesome event with Bobby Jo’s catering over 400 former Clinton graduates. It’s fun to work the table at this event and watch everyone come in and see their friends from years past!
Following the reunion, I had a little detour for my part of the day to attend a wedding in Morris, but while I was out of town the fun continued for all. The Half Buffalo’s were served by the Depot park and it was an awesome opportunity again for those in town to visit. Some former staff and faculty also met at the depot park area.
The baseball field has always been a busy place in Clinton and this weekend was no different. The Alumni game offered an opportunity for former teammates to get together and have some fun. I heard that the pork was just awesome, although I missed that event as well. The Clinton Cards unfortunately lost their game to the Dumont Saints and there was a little rain but not enough to cause any delays in the game.
The Enduro Race was also held on Saturday afternoon and again, since I wasn’t at this event, I’ll wait to report on that event until I hear from some of those organizers.
The Street Dance with Kid Hollywood was very well attended and it was a fun night. We were really lucky with the weather this weekend. The dance was fun even though I did leave a bit early but I had a great opportunity to listen to the last few songs from my bed!
