Birthday Gift Illustrates Love of Community

A familiar face around Clear Lake celebrated his January birthday among friends and received a gift that truly embodied his involvement in his community. Tom Coonradt, whose birthday was Jan. 30, was gifted a quilt comprised of t-shirts he’s collected over the years. The quilt was made by local quilter Mary May, and was given to Tom at the party hosted by friends in his honor.

Tom is a familiar face to those who frequent the businesses of downtown Clear Lake, and his community has always been an important part of his life. Tom enjoys staying involved in his community. Tom enjoys local sporting events, visiting Clear Lake businesses, and he also finds purpose through volunteering with many local organizations, including the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and the Clear Lake Art Center.
