Clinton resident Elisa Miller received the volunteer of the year award for from the Clinton Progressive Association in September for her many years of service.

Miller has played an integral part in the popular community picnic event that happens annually at Dan Porter Park in September as one of its founders. The event typically involves food, music and a host of kids games and activities.

The three associations in Clinton — the Clinton Chamber of Commerce, Clinton Progressive Association and Clinton Community Council — worked collaboratively to raise $300 in donations from the event.

The Clinton Progressive Association is the entity that manages the Clinton Community Hall. Kathy Craven, secretary at the Clinton Community Hall, said Miller has been an inspiration to those around her.

“She has stayed involved and encouraged involvement from the rest of the community,” Craven said.
