November 25, 2009 - Clarkston Cares for Military Families, a community group of volunteers supporting local veterans, meets Wednesday, Dec. 2, 7:30 p.m., at St. Dan's Cushing Center.

The group's mission is to provide whatever support is needed to people in the military and their families throughout their deployment cycle, said volunteer Holly Workman.

In the Clarkston area, without a nearby military base, that means reservists.

"In the reserves, families live in communities without the support found on a military base," Workman said. "You can feel isolated in the community. It seems ackward and uncomfortable. Friends and neighbors don't understand. We want to get the word out."

Goals include organizing community resources to provide financial, moral, and other kinds of support.

For more information, call Mary Lou Enneking at St. Dan's church, 7010 Valley Park Drive off Holcomb Road, 248-625-4583.
