Clinton County Chapter

Please go to http://www.clintoncountyikes.org for the latest updates on the Clinton County Chapter of the Izaak Walton League. Any news you would like to appear on our new website, please e-mail Sandi at clintoncountyikes@gmail.com. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at http://www.clintoncountyikes.org.


The Clinton Chapter was chartered in 1942 with 69 members. Soon after, they obtained property from the Clinton Park Board that became known as "Ikes Peak." In the late '50's and early '60's, we boasted nearly 1200 members, being the third largest chapter in the League. After the sale of the property in 1992, we began the search for a new home.
 
In 1996, we purchased & were donated 60 acres of land 5 miles northwest of Clinton on Highway 136. We now have a beautiful Chapter house overlooking a 1 1/2 -acre pond that we call "Ikes Haven." The Clinton Chapter has been a leader in "Clinton County Conservation" from its beginning until the present. We presently have 125 members and are always looking for more. We meet on the third Thursday of every month and have a delicious potluck supper beginning at 6:30 (the Chapter furnishes the meat and everyone brings a dish to pass) and a meeting following. Their are always interesting and timely programs prior to the business meeting. Our Board of Directors meet every first Tuesday at 6:30. Those meetings are open to the public. Our grounds are beautiful and well kept by volunteers. Our Chapter house is a two story building with upstairs being a meeting hall that will comfortably hold 75 persons. The lower level has a nice kitchen, dinning area and handicap accessible restrooms. The dinning area seats about 35. Many functions flow out of doors on to the grounds. Our facility is for rent to members and their guests.
