From the Editor

“June is busting out all oh-over!” Did you just sing along? Summer is here and things are looking more positive every day – Friday Night Live’s coming back soon, graduation, the Lion’s Club Father’s Day breakfast, a fantastic bike event in July, and hopefully, summer travel.

With this June issue, Cloverdale Connect is making layout changes due to the tremendous response from advertisers, additional content and reader submitted photos. The current “Cloverdale Cares” page will be moved to the website under a new tab: “Resources”. Taking its place will be the new “Our Cloverdale Community Cares” page with news and articles about the positive things our service clubs, non-profits and residents are doing. We have moved our “Your Community Connections” section with Business Card ads into the interior of the
paper for better visibility with expanded space for advertisers. “Cooking With David” has been moved to the back page so it’s easy to see it when you’re cooking.

Thank you to our readers and advertisers as Cloverdale Connect grows, adjusts and continues to serve our Cloverdale community.
