Letter to the Editor
Thanks for community support at Quatro

June 26, 2013

Dear Editor,

The Clarkston Cooperative Preschool held a silent auction on May 4 at the Clarkston Flower Shoppe & Birdfeeder during the Quatro de Mayo event.

We were overwhelmed with the support from 49 local businesses and artisans, who donated more than $6,500 worth of products and services to our event.

Our Silent Auction was held to raise money for the Clarkston Cooperative Preschool - the only preschool in the Village of Clarkston - which has been nurturing happy souls since 1969.

We could not continue to flourish without the support of this wonderful community, and we are grateful beyond measure to all those who donated, bid, and browsed. And we need to send a special thank you to Steve at the Clarkston Flower Shoppe and Birdfeeder who not only developed the Quatro De Mayo event but who graciously provided us with a stunning venue for our auction. With all of your generosity, our event was a huge success! Thank you, thank you, thank you Clarkston businesses and patrons!

Rachel Sytsma Reed, board member, Clarkston Cooperative Preschool
