The holiday gift giving season is in full swing, and the Clark Lake Community Center has a suggestion.  Their latest offering is now available–exclusive red wine glasses. 


Previously, the Center featured white wine glasses.  The difference?  The Wine Enthusiast site tells the story: “Typically Red wine glasses will be a bit taller and have a larger bowl than White wine glasses. In general Reds are bigger and bolder wines so they require a larger glass to allow all those aromas and flavors to emerge.”  But no one will stop you from using these glasses for either.

More importantly, the glasses are inscribed with the name of our favorite place–Clark Lake.  And with the purchase of each glass, you are helping to support the Clark Lake Community Center.  The glasses are $12 each, and you can find them at Doyle’s.  With the holidays approaching, strong demand is expected.  Supplies are limited.


There is a lot to keeping the Clark Lake Community Center looking great and available for the use of the community.  Repairs, maintenance, and improvements are a constant concern. This kind of work is supported by fund raisers, as with the wine glasses.  And there are those who underwrite needs in other ways.  For example, this fall Mike McKay’s company, M-R Builders, repaired the soffits. “Critters try to make this home their home by boring holes into vulnerable areas” according the Community Center Treasurer John Deming.  “It doesn’t take much room for a critter to move in.”  Mike McKay noted “wood filler plugs will keep the house tight.” In the photo, Jim Roberts is sanding areas to be repainted.
