A day to remember to buy local - keeping your money in our local economy - keeping our neighbors employed. The merchants in Old Town Clovis have a lot of perks, and exciting reasons to shop there. Have fun finding what you need, and helping your community.
One Enchanted Evening is one of Old Town’s most anticipated events! Thousands of people come down to enjoy the old-fashioned holiday open house. This year’s event will be held Thursday, November 20, 2014 from 5 to 8pm.
There will be groups of Carolers to lift your spirits with their holiday songs; hot chocolate made specially by groups of Santa’s elves (aka Bank of the Sierra); and cozy shops wrapped up in their holiday best. Luminaries will light the way through the dark of the night and horse drawn carriage rides add to the magic of this special event.
Free horse-drawn carriage rides, caroling by Gold Note, Jubilation Singers, Ovation Girls Choir, and Voices United. Two for the Road will provide Cowboy and Celtic music.
City of Clovis Awarded Class 2 Rating by the Insurance Services Office
The City of Clovis is pleased to announce that it was recently surveyed by the Insurance Services Office (ISO) to determine its Public Protection Classification (PPC) and effective February 1, 2015, the City of Clovis will be upgraded to a Class 2 rating.
Using this rating scale, ISO objectively reviews the fire protection capabilities of the community and assigns a Public Protection Classification number from 1 to 10. Class 1 represents exemplary fire protection in the community and Class 10 indicates that the area’s fire suppression programs do not meet minimum recognition criteria. ISO evaluates a community approximately once every ten (10) years or when major department changes occur. The City of Clovis received a Class 4 rating in 1988, a Class 3 rating in 2001 and in 2015, will be upgraded to a Class 2.
