We will meet at the Costco parking lot (400 Brown Rd), and will likely stop someplace for brunch afterward.

We will have safety vests, “picking” sticks and trash bags.




NODC Clarkston ParadeThurs. July 4th, 9:00 am to noon – Clarkston Independence Day parade. Please join us as we walk again in this year’s 4th of July parade in Clarkston.

We will begin at St. Daniel Church parking lot (Miller St at Holcomb). The parade begins at 10 a.m., and ends before noon at Clarkston Community Ed. parking lot (parade is about 1 mile long).

The best bet is to park where the parade ends (where there is plenty of parking) and walk to where the parade begins (where there is no parking). We need help with banners, signs, and handing out candy.
