For the past 82 years the Rotary Club of Clarkston has proudly sold a published newspaper for donations on the streets of Clarkston. The first 38 years were primarily focused on providing Clarkston families with Holiday food baskets, Christmas gifts and funds for medical issues, heating and lights. During the past 43 years our club's "Shoes for Kids" program has focused on providing new shoes, winter boots, hats and gloves to Clarkston school children.
Over the past 20 years over 11,000 children have participated in the program, thousands of volunteers have committed their time and the Clarkston community has generously donated over $300,000 to help make "Shoes for Kids" a reality for Clarkston school children. The Clarkston Rotary would like to sincerely thank everyone involved for their trust and dedication.

Planning for a great and productive year!
Rotarians spent a Monday evening at DRAW (Disaster Relief at Work) packing buckets with cleaning supplies, latex gloves, work gloves, safety googles, baths and hand towels.  The buckets were sealed and placed along with others on warehouse shelves to be sent to communities around the US hit by natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes and tornadoes. 

A New Clarkston Rotary Service Project

In January, Clarkston Rotarians joined hundred of volunteers to help the Holly National Veterans Memorial Cemetery clean up their Wreaths Across America Project! Volunteers cleaned up thousands of gravesites by removing and hauling away the many wreaths left as part of the project. 

Great Lakes National Cemetery is the second national cemetery built in Michigan and the 122nd in the national cemetery system. Our club had never participated before, but it will definitely become an annual project.  It was below zero wind chill, and next year we’ll have to make plans for some hot chocolate and coffee for a warm up break. 

All community members are welcome to join the effort.
