Vision Statement

Clark Lake Community Center preserves a part of Clark Lake’s history, housed in an iconic lake home, designed to serve as a central gathering place for the community.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to form a group of dedicated volunteers working to keep the Clark Lake Community Center self-sustaining for all to enjoy.

Values — We believe that…

–People working together on a common goal create a true sense of community.

–All people, regardless of age, religion, ethnic, economic, or handicapped status, should be valued for their talents.

–The restoration of the Center and all fundraising activities should be conducted in ways that will protect the environment of land and lake.

–The Clark Lake Community Center should be financially self-sustaining by means of fund-raisers.

–All projects and fundraisers must be approved by the Board of Directors of the Clark Lake Community Center before they begin.

As our mission statement indicates, the Community Center Board works with dedicated citizens of the Clark Lake community to maintain the historic Clark Lake Community Center as a viable gathering place for family and community activities.

It has taken a major effort from community volunteers to move and restore the former cottage from its 100 year old lakeside site, across the lake, to its present site in the Clark Lake County Park.

We thank those early volunteers, who had the foresight to see the potential future of the old cottage. Those pioneers had the energy to form a not-for-profit group, dedicated to raising the funds necessary to float the building across the lake, and spent many hours of sweat-equity to position the Center in the County Park and to restore the building to its present state.

Since that time (1997) volunteers have donated their time to repair, paint and decorate the center. Volunteers have also planned and participated in many of the fund raising activities that provide the funds to maintain and improve the Clark Lake Community Center.

Our group meets monthly.  Our meeting dates are posted on the calendar.  You’re welcome to join us!
