Kids Against Hunger

The second annual Kids Against Hunger event is March 23 at Clarkston High School.

The registration fee to participate in the event is 10 dollars per individual or 25 dollars per family.

All the money goes to the cost of the food. It is a great family event and only requires an hour of your time.

Last year the community fed 166,128 children around the world and locally.

If interested in participating or donating please contact Lisa Donley at ldonley@clarkston.k12.mi.us or Megan Hanselman at mchanselma14@clarkston.k12.mi.us. Registration forms are located at the high school main office.

No WiFi yet

Wireless Oakland continues to try to make WiFi available in downtown Clarkston. They havenít found a good place to get a clear signal, however. According to City Manager Dennis Ritter, the county had little success at finding a signal from the top of KH Home on Main Street.

Next, they may try climbing to the top of Essence on Main. Once a signal is found, Clarkstonites will be able to access high speed broadband on their mobile devices.

Detroit Voice on CD

Clarkston High School's Detroit Voice has been chosen to have their version of Aretha Franklinís†"Chain of Fools"appear on the Best of High School A Cappella (BOHSA) compilation CD.†

"This is a huge honor as hundreds of tracks were submitted and only 19 tracks were chosen for the CD that is sold world-wide," said director Brian Haverkate.†

The CDs will be available through the Clarkston Vocal Music Department this spring as well as on iTunes.†

Detroit Voice, an a cappella vocal group, was created as a celebration of Detroit-inspired music from throughout the decades.†
