Not even a torrential downpour could deter our Clarke alumni from attending the Cedar Rapids Kernels event Friday, June 19! The picnic and game were held at the Perfect Game Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Clarke alumni Heidi Walvatne Cordes ’03, Carol Nilles ’58, Grant Stejskal ’02, Kevin Stejskal ’06, and Denise Wubben ’03 hosted this event with more than 30 people in attendance.
