Letter to the Editor

Rotary says thank you

January 09, 2013 - Dear Editor,

The Clarkston Rotary Club would like to thank the many volunteers who committed time and energy for this year's Goodfellow newspaper sales and subsequent Shoes for Kids. Over 100 people wandered our streets in early December.

The newspaper donations collected during the two days on the streets, as well as a generous donation from the Clarkston Women's Club, this being the fourth annual pledge, goes a long way to fulfilling needs of the 425 Clarkston school children signed up for this year's Shoes for Kids program.

The Clarkston Lions Club Project KidsSight program took eye photos of 119 people, primarily between six months old and age five.

The Clarkston Optimist Club is now in their second year of their "Opti-Socks" distribution.

Many of the local dentists donated toothbrushes and toothpaste to be given to the children attending this past Saturday. Oakland Woods Baptist Church opened the doors and hearts of their church again this year in providing a venue that allows us to offer so many different components to the program in one building.

And The Clarkston News, as always for printing our paper!

We appreciate the community support shown each year in bringing this sizable project to fruition. Collectively we helped make a small difference in a child's life.

Clarkston Rotary Club and

Joel DeLong, Shoe for Kids Chair
