Letter to the editor
Thanks for Wild Ones support

June 29, 2011

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the North Oakland Chapter of the Wild Ones and the Clarkston Retailerís Group we would like to extend a very grateful thank you to two groups that stepped forward when we were told through the State of Michigan Licensing Bureau that our request to receive a license to hold a kayak raffle could not be granted in time for our River Day event.†

First the Rotary Club of Clarkston through Joel DeLong wasted no time in getting the proper paperwork to us that allowed us to move forward on this license.†

And secondly Sharon Haven, from Rep. Eileen Kowallís office, worked diligently making calls almost daily in monitoring the process and ultimately did get the license approved.†

To see this kind of support is a great reminder of what a wonderful community we live in.† We look forward to hosting River Day again next year.

Colleen Schmidt,

Wild Ones, North Oakland Chapter
