President's Column

 

Kathy Novak, is our Club President for the 2020-2021 Optimist year. 

Last Updated on:07/14/2021

Hello Clarkston Community!

Its July…I went shopping for a beach umbrella and walked straight into school supplies! All the fun summer items were replaced with binders, pencils and backpacks! I don’t know about you, but after this past year….I think all of us need to revel in the ease of summer, as long as we possibly can. Even the rain can’t ruin a precious summer day this year. So as we walk, drive, work, shop, dine, take our kids to a park, or a dog for a walk….all around this fantastic community…remember to offer a smile or a quick hello to the people you see. We ALL have been through so much this last year….yet we ALL have been through it together! Let the warmth of summer, bring out the warmth in all of us.

And since you’re on our Club’s home page…please scroll to the top and click on ABOUT US...then click on OUR CLUB CREED…. please take a minute to read these simple, yet empowering words!

Relish these flip-flop days and fire-fly nights!!

 

Committed to Optimism,

Kathy Novak, 35th Club President
