I LIVE UNITED kick off campaign

Local bars, restaurants and taverns are joining together to raise money for the United Way. November 7-9 patrons are encouraged to head to downtown Port Clinton to kick off the I LIVE UNITED t-shirt campaign.

Participating businesses include: 1812 Food & Spirits, Bell Mell Tavern, Cielo Grande Tapas Bar, Clinton House, McCarthy’s, Rosie’s and Slater’s. These businesses will be inviting their customers to donate to the United Way. The campaign is simple; each bar and/or restaurant will have blank paper t-shirts available.

No, more than ever, United Way needs the support from the community. United Way works to improve lives in our community by focusing their work on education, income and health. For more information call Lisa Dubbert at 419-734-6645.

He has spent the better part of the last 10 years studying the crumbling of the American Dream among America’s Youth. He caused quite a stir locally over a year ago when he wrote a piece for the New York Times, and Port Clinton appeared. His research provided a fairly grim picture of his home town.
