Letter to the editor
Thanks to community for Fourth support

March 09, 2011

Dear Editor,

Thank you Clarkston Medical Group for pledging to contribute $1,000 to the Clarkston Community Church Community Challenge to continue the Fourth of July Festival of Fun at Clintonwood Park.

Way to get the ball rolling!

For those that are not aware, because funding for special events through the Independence Township Parks and Recreation Department was cut this year, Clarkston Community Church issued the community challenge to donate up to $10,000 for every dollar of matching funds the community donates.

To make this event happen we need to raise $10,000 by April 15.

Another new option to make this event happen is from The Graphic Wizard, who organized a "Keep the Spark in the Park" campaign. T-Shirts are available for $10 each to support this campaign, with proceeds going to support the event.

Shirts can be purchased at the Independence Township Parks and Recreation office as well as at The Graphic Wizard, Lakeview Food Basket, Spectrum Printing, Lil' Peoples Place, Clarkston Community Church, and New Leaf Flower Studio.

For more information about donations or sponsorships visit the website at or call our office at 248-625-8223 and ask for Ken or Kelly.

Ken Elwert, director

Independence Township Parks and Rec.
