Since moving to Clinton, Sandy Luke has immersed herself in the community in volunteer roles. She is a member of the Clinton 350 Committee, the Pretty Committee, and is a volunteer coach for Clinton Parks & Recreation. In addition, she singlehandedly created the Clinton Gingerbread contest, which has become an integral part of the town’s annual Christmas in Clinton celebration in just two years. As a member of the 350 Committee, she has dedicated hours to brainstorming ways to honor Clinton’s and the shoreline’s history. During Tropical Storm Irene, Sandy’s street was the only one with power and she and her husband opened their home for neighbors to take showers, charge their electronics, and even enjoy a meal she prepared.
