Things to do


For parents, free babysitting will be available for children 6 months to 12 years while the parent uses the fitness facility. Spring crafts, games and activities are planned for the kids.

During the event, the YWCA will offer a 20 percent discount off a pre-paid six-month membership, saving new members up to $60 off of regular prices. Also during the event, free T-shirts will be given to all new members, and members that refer a friend to join the YWCA will receive one free month of membership. See the YWCA front desk staff for details.

In collaboration with the Clinton School Nurses, a “Walk for Wellness” will be held on the Clinton riverfront at 9 a.m. Those wishing to participate are asked to arrive at 8:45 a.m. for a warm up at the Candlelight Inn. Healthy snacks will be provided to all walk participants following the walk. In the event of inclement weather, listen to KROS 1340AM.

For more information about the Let’s Get Moving event, call YWCA Health & Wellness Director Stephanie Sommers at 242-2110.

• A celebration of German music from the 19th century is on the program for Clinton Symphony Orchestra this weekend.The concert is at 7:30 p.m. in the Vernon Cook Theater at Clinton High School.

The concert marks the end of the Symphony’s 59th indoor concert season, and conductor Brian Dollinger’s sixth season with the orchestra. Composers represented are Ludwig van Beethoven, Richard Wagner and Robert Schumann.

“Each work on this performance has its own story to tell,” Dollinger said. “In fact, the word ‘story’ can be taken quite literally for much of the performance. Whether we are talking about the Shakespearean tragedy Coriolanus, or the birthday gift that Richard Wagner gave to his wife Cosima, stories are woven throughout.”

The major work of the evening will be Schumann’s Rhenish Symphony, and portrays his impressions of scenes along the Rhine River, including a movement dedicated to the recently completed cathedral at Cologne. Although the symphony is numbered “Three,” it was actually the last of the composer’s four symphonies to be completed.

But in the last few years, the claims of excessive force are being corroborated with new technology from cell phone cameras, police dash-cams and surveillance videos.
