COSI comes to ICS

On Wednesday, April 24, young minds got a jolt of energy when COSI (Center of Science and Industry) brought its traveling science program, Investigating Energy, to Immaculate Conception School in Port Clinton for a day of learning. 

Investigating Energy is one of six traveling science demonstrations from COSI.

GPAAC events

As this year marks an exciting time for Port Clinton and Ottawa County, so to it is for the Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council (GPAAC). With the summer season just around the corner, people will soon be making their way back to our area for the enjoyment brought by Lake Erie, the islands, boating, fishing, camping or otherwise simply the thought of getting away. With all the upcoming events planned around the Battle of Lake Erie bicentennial celebration, we may very well see the greatest influx of tourism in our lifetime.
