FALL SESSION: August - December 2018 Recreation Activities

    Want to get healthier this summer? Try this great opportunity to walk or jog on an Olympic caliber track! The Clinton Schools and the Let’s Live Healthy Clinton initiative are opening the facility on South 14 St from 6 AM-8 AM every Tuesday and Thursday for the summer.
   The location was formerly the Clinton Country Club and most recently an Ashford University track and soccer complex. There is a large parking lot and volunteers will be on hand to help you get started. 
   What a great opportunity to get your exercise in early in the morning before the hot weather sets in! Remember, sitting is the new smoking. Come out and use this great facility to improve your own personal wellness. Bring your friends/tell your friends/post this message on Facebook! Let’s make Clinton a Healthy Community.
