The Lakeview Cemetery Restoration Project provided the perfect opportunity for the Clarkston Rotary and its sponsored Clarkston High School Interact Club members to join forces on Saturday, May 8th in helping to clean and preserve gravestones. Over twenty members helped to scrape away years of moss and grime. Afterwards, everyone could take pride in their completed efforts and planned on returning for future scheduled activities.
The Clarkston Interact Club presented a check for $350 to the Daughters of the American Revolution, Sashabaw Plains Chapter to help clean gravestones. They held a can and bottle drive and donated fifty percent of their proceeds to the restoration project.
The Lakeview Cemetery Project is a multi-year effort to restore and repair gravestones of many of the people who helped to settle and establish Clarkston.
