A message from the Clinton 350th Committee:
You may have noticed those “350” signs scattered around Clinton. As many know, they signify the Town’s preparation for its 350th Birthday…formally its Sesquarcentennial.
To honor Clinton’s 350th year, the Clinton 350th Committee is organizing and promoting a series of year-long, open-to-all celebrations to mark the historical events, great people and families that have impacted our town, state and country.
The mission is to:
- Honor our great 350 year legacy
- Rally our civic spirit
- Strengthen pride in ourselves and our town
- Increase awareness of Clinton, its people and its beauty
- Strengthen the bonds that hold us all together
In doing so, improve our community and celebrate that “It’s Great We Can Gather.”
The celebration starts with “The Launch,” a big-time New Year’s Eve party that kicks it all off and the fun lasts all year. Time is drawing short and the list of things needed to do and buy is growing long. While the 350th Committee is currently seeking corporate sponsors and planning some fundraisers, individual donations from all will be crucial to make it all happen. The greater the number of folks who contribute the greater the fun will be for everyone.
There are suggested contribution levels: the “Friends” level is $35 and donors’ names will be published in an upcoming article in the Clinton Patch, the “Bronze” level is $350 and gets donors’ names placed on the 350th Donor Wall which will be erected downtown in addition to their name in an article acknowledging donors on Patch. Of course, any amount anyone can contribute will be very greatly appreciated.
Checks should be made out to “Clinton350” and mailed to: Clinton 350, PO Box 35, Clinton, CT 06413.
