Clark Day's commitment and involvement in our community is unquestionable. He has consistently devoted his personal and business life toward bettering our area and the people who live here. His business involvement in Kingston is legendary and his commitment to volunteer life here is unmatched. He is a shining example of how hard work, planning and perseverance pays rewards to those who chose to be both an entrepreneur and community advocate. In addition to the various restaurants and business offerings Clark has established in Kingston over the decades, his involvement in fundraising, charities, community advocacy, and tourism has benefited the community and inspired other business owners to undertake community work.


“It’s always so exciting to watch our students walk across the stage and become graduates of the college,” said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO of St. Lawrence College. “They’ve worked so hard, and convocation is when we recognize and celebrate their accomplishments before they commence the next stage in their lives.”
