Clarkston, Thank You!!
Magically, Santa and Mrs. Claus made a very special appearance at Renaissance High School on Saturday, November 11th.
The Rotary Club of Clarkston held its annual “Shoes for Kids” program benefiting Clarkston school children. 
This year 508 Clarkston School children were invited to receive new shoes, winter boots, hats, and gloves from our Rotary Club.
On the last Friday in June, the Clarkston Rotary club "sold" concessions at the concert in Depot Park in downtown Clarkston.  It was a great opportunity to greet residents, bring some visibility to our club and listen to great music with friends, all while providing hot dogs and chips for donations. 

For the Memorial Day Weekend, Clarkston Rotarians Donna Michalski, Cassie and Matt Senter and their two children, joined other volunteers who placed American flags at the grave sites in the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, MI. Hundreds of volunteers from various organizations came out to Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly on Friday, May 28, to place flags on the graves of veterans in advance of Memorial Day.  The following Tuesday, Clarkston Rotarians joined those removing the flags. 

The volunteers spread out across the cemetery at 4200 Belford Road ensuring that every grave received a flag.


On March 22nd and 23rd of 2023, the Clarkston High School Interact Club put on a bake sale during the school days. Over the course of two days, our committed high schoolers made baked goods consisting of handmade cookies, brownies, and cupcakes. All of those items were sold for $1 each, but the most sold items were donuts from Tim Hortons and Dunkin’ donuts, which were sold for $2 each. This bake sale was put on to raise money for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, with a total of more than $900. Dolly Parton founded this organization in 1995 and began her mission of giving books to children ages one through five free of charge.

The Rotary Club of Clarkston is proud to have been awarded the title Non-Profit of the Year by the Clarkston Area Chamber of Commerce.  The award is given to a "not-for-profit organization whose strategic vision, passion and perseverance has led to extraordinary outcomes for the community." Our club was recognized for its two biggest projects; the Dolly Parton Imagination Library and Shoes for Kids.  The Dolly Parton Imagination Library is providing a book a month to 640 preschoolers in the three Clarkston zip codes, and Shoes for Kids invited 396 kids to receive new shoes, boots, hats and gloves in 2022.
