Joyful Connections to host the 3rd Annual Family Frenzy

The Ottawa County Noodleheads from last year’s Family Frenzy

Joyful Connections is holding their third Annual Family Frenzy (similar to the TV game show Family Feud) on Saturday, September 13, at 6 p.m. at the Catawba Island Township Hall on NW Catawba Road.  Come watch the fun as six local teams go head to head as they compete for the championship.  The Ottawa County Noodleheads will be back to defend their title. Judge Kathleen Giesler and Commissioner Jim Sass will be hosting the event and are sure to be a hoot!  The questions are somewhat zany and designed to raise a laugh, so come prepared to have fun.

The Amazing Island Raise

The Amazing Island Raise kicked off 11 a.m. Saturday, June 14, from The Catawba Inn. 33 teams of raisers headed to Put-in-Bay on the noon Miller Ferry to race around the island just like the Amazing Race. These teams solved clues and completed challenges to win prizes while raising funds and awareness for Joyful Connections and Ottawa County CASA. These two children’s charities support and advocate for families and children in crisis.

This is the second season of The Amazing Raise-Put-in-Bay style and the number of teams and individuals participating has more than doubled! Joyful Connections and CASA would like to thank the sponsors, teams and all who have supported this great event!

Thank you,

Joyful Connections and Ottawa County CASA

The teams traveled the island to eight different locations and at each location they were asked to complete a task to earn a clue for their next destination.

In addition to the eight main destinations, there were master challenges including having teams ask for donations from residents with the most cash raised getting a prize.
