We did it — we broke the 400 mark for donations to our Mitten Tree! We collected 182 pairs of gloves and mittens, 130 hats and 101 scarves for a total of 413 items to help keep heads, hands and hearts warm this winter. The good folks at the Salvation Army picked up the last load last Friday so our tree is now empty. Once again, we had many hand-made items this year so there is no doubt that our donors really put a lot of time and heart into this wonder Christmas tradition. Thanks to one and all.
Tonight there will be a little bit more on the line when Port Clinton plays at Oak Harbor in boys’ basketball. There will be a special drawing during the second quarter and at halftime, some lucky contestant will have a chance to make a lay-up, a free throw, a 3-point shot and a half-court shot to win a free 2-year lease on a Ford Escape from Tri Motor Sales in Oak Harbor. If you get this on Wednesday or early Thursday, you might want to call Tri Motors to register at 1-800-336-2931.
