The first ever “Clarkston Connects: After Hours Business Social” took place on May 8 at Kathmandu Kitchen and Grill in Clarkston. The event was attended by 50 people, including those from the Clarkston Business community, local government officials, the Mayor, and members of local organizations. The event was a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to meet-up, network and talk business. The event featured a presentation from Clarkston city Manager Keith Barker, who explained how the $5.7 million streetscape project will change the face of business in Clarkston. Each attendee introduced themselves to the crowd and shared information about themselves and their business.
