President's Column

 

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

Last Updated on:04/30/2021

Hello Clarkston Community!

April showers certainly gifted us with amazing May flowers……as you drive, walk or ride through our beautiful Community…take a minute to enjoy Mother Nature at her finest……Springtime!

I’m sure the kids are thrilled with our Spring weather and knowing that Summer break is just weeks away!  So as we warm into the month of May…..I want to take a minute to recognize all of our “Mom’s”, who know there is nothing more important or precious in the world, than a child. Moms…you come in all shapes, sizes, types, and are called many different names…..yet each of you share the same bond, and you understand that the best gift you have and ever will receive…is the love from a child!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Committed to Optimism,

Kathy Novak, 35th Club President
