A spring time tradition that spans better than 25 years in Clinton is set for this weekend.
The annual Clinton Rotary Alumni basketball game is set for this Saturday with a men's and women's game. Terry Ijams has been the coordinator of the event for the entirety of the event's existence and says each year, they do this to benefit DeWitt County Habitat For Humanity.
The alumni game has largely been consistent over many years but Ijams notes they added a women's game a number of years ago which increased participation and turnout. He also notes they have changed the requirements for alumni to participate.
Ijams indicates this years rosters for the men's and women's games include recent graduates of Clinton High School and athletes from memorable teams in the school's history.
This year's alumni basketball game is set for Saturday March 26 with the tip for the first game of 6:30 pm and the second game to follow, following some entertainment provided by youth at the Clinton YMCA.
