Meet Linda Danek, a Clarkston Optimist Club member. She became aware of the club through Michelle Carson, Clarkston High School Optimist Advisor and checked us out online (www.clarkstonoptimists.org.)
Linda says, “I liked the Creed and I crashed a meeting. People made me feel welcome especially member. Linda Knott. My first meeting was the Scholarship winners talking about their future plans and accomplishments at a celebration breakfast. I was hooked.”
Linda is currently serving on the Board of Directors, she helped with the Fourth of July parade setup, Friendly Forest in October and at the braut trailer after the Christmas Lights Parade. She was back in January to help with Shiver by the River and more brauts to cook. She also worked with the students at North Sashabaw and enjoyed it very much.
Linda says, “The members of the Clarkston Optimist Club are very welcoming, devoted to fulfill the Optimist Creed and “Bringing Out the Best in Kids”
She added, “If you are looking to get involved in the community and do good work, get involved in the Optimists. Being involved has made a difference in my life. It is one of the best things I’ve done for myself.”
Linda shared that she was cleaning her basement a couple of months ago and came across a second place trophy from her time in Junior High. She had entered the Optimist Oratorical Contest and it was her first public speaking experience.
Come and join Linda Danek, a Clarkston Optimist Club member, and enjoy the fellowship and serve the Clarkston community and especially the youth!
