A New Clarkston Rotary Service Project

In January, Clarkston Rotarians joined hundred of volunteers to help the Holly National Veterans Memorial Cemetery clean up their Wreaths Across America Project! Volunteers cleaned up thousands of gravesites by removing and hauling away the many wreaths left as part of the project. 

Great Lakes National Cemetery is the second national cemetery built in Michigan and the 122nd in the national cemetery system. Our club had never participated before, but it will definitely become an annual project.  It was below zero wind chill, and next year we’ll have to make plans for some hot chocolate and coffee for a warm up break. 

All community members are welcome to join the effort.
