Wednesday Kiwanis lunch meetings in Port Clinton are rarely laced with politics.
State Representative Chris Redfern, starting his second stint in Columbus in that position, held a Town Hall session Friday morning at Port Clinton City Hall.
“Be Your Best” is the theme of the Women’s Retreat at Trinity United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall in Port Clinton on Feb. 1 from 6-9 p.m. and Feb. 2 from 8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. There will be a variety of speakers, activities, fellowship and food for women of all ages to share. The retreat is $25 for both days and includes dinner, breakfast and lunch. The cost for one day is $12.50.
Linda Peiffer of Port Clinton heads up the Northwest Ohio Chapter of ConKerr Cancer. The group makes pillowcases for children in the Oncology Department at Toledo’s Children's and Mercy Children’s Hospitals.
The Chapter responded to a plea from the national office of ConKerr Cancer to send pillowcases to Quilters Corner in New Milford, CT, for the children of Sandy Hook Elementary of Newtown. There were 60 pillowcases ready, so Linda boxed up the pillowcases and sent them off to the quilt shop for distribution to the children at Sandy Hook.
The Danbury Township Trustees, with the assistance of Ken Kostal, will hold a fundraising dinner at Big Bopper’s Restaurant, 7581 East Harbor Road, on Thursday, Feb. 21, from 4 until 8 p.m. Kostal offered to host the dinner to raise funds for the purchase of 26 memorial trees to be planted in Newtown, CT.
