Tonight, we celebrated the long-honored tradition of the passing of the gavel. As Stephanie’s term is coming to an end, we welcomed Jim Tedder as our upcoming 2024-2025 club President. After the ceremony, Jim provided us with a sneak peak of what he is planning for the next year; his (and our) focus will be on elevating community awareness of the Rotary Club of Clarkston, a greater effort on collaboration with other community impact groups, reviving the Clarkston Community Garden, and many more ideas yet to come. It is sure to be a fun year, so stay tuned for more happenings as Jim gets things underway.
Clarkston, Thank You!!

For the Memorial Day Weekend, Clarkston Rotarians Donna Michalski, Cassie and Matt Senter and their two children, joined other volunteers who placed American flags at the grave sites in the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, MI. Hundreds of volunteers from various organizations came out to Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly on Friday, May 28, to place flags on the graves of veterans in advance of Memorial Day.  The following Tuesday, Clarkston Rotarians joined those removing the flags. 

The volunteers spread out across the cemetery at 4200 Belford Road ensuring that every grave received a flag.


On March 22nd and 23rd of 2023, the Clarkston High School Interact Club put on a bake sale during the school days. Over the course of two days, our committed high schoolers made baked goods consisting of handmade cookies, brownies, and cupcakes. All of those items were sold for $1 each, but the most sold items were donuts from Tim Hortons and Dunkin’ donuts, which were sold for $2 each. This bake sale was put on to raise money for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, with a total of more than $900. Dolly Parton founded this organization in 1995 and began her mission of giving books to children ages one through five free of charge.
