Businesses and organizations are encouraged to participate in the 2013 Gift of Lights. They may purchase a tree for a $30 donation. The trees will be located at Adams Street Park in downtown historic Port Clinton. People will vote for their favorite or best-decorated tree for a dollar donation. The proceeds from the 2013 Gift of Lights go to the Oak House as selected by the 2012 winner (Port Clinton Artists Club). The donations will determine this year’s winner.
