Letters to the Editor

Thanks for service

Dear Editor,
Impact Weekend was a community project that benefited many.
Twenty-one volunteers worked at the senior center gardens and the entrance to Clintonwood Park.
There were young people and adults from the Clarkston Community Church, adults from the senior center, the Senior Center Garden Committee and young people and adults from the Clarkston area.
They “Spring Cleaned” the beds around the senior center building, the Carriage House and the Memorial Garden and spread about 15 yards of mulch.
The entrance to Clintonwood Park was re-landscaped. Prior to Impact Sunday, Park Rangers Ray and Larry pruned trees, cleaned the area, moved boulders and brought in top soil.
The volunteers planted perennial plants, shrubs and spread 10 yards of mulch. Some of the plants were donated by Lowrie’s Nursery.
After the work was completed we enjoyed lunch, which was donated by Neiman’s Market. Thank you to everyone!
Take a tour of the gardens when your in the area.

Independence Township Senior

Pond work appreciated

Dear Editor,
The residents of the Clarkston Mill Pond would like to thank Mayor Steve Percival and City Manager Jonathan Smith for facilitating the pickup of the collected debris from our annual Mill Pond cleanup by the city Department of Public Works.
