Oak Harbor falls to Ottawa-Glandorf, 34-17

Ultimately, Oak Harbor’s mistakes did them in.

Despite hanging with Ottawa-Glandorf for much of the game, four Rocket turnovers were the difference in their 34-17 loss to the Titans on Friday at the Launchpad. 

Oak Harbor raced out to a 10-3 lead after running back Andrew Heberling scored on a 65-yard touchdown run midway thru the second quarter, but Ottawa-Glandorf responded by scoring 21 unanswered points, taking a 17-10 lead into the half before scoring on the first possession of the third quarter to go ahead 24-10.

Ava’s Labor of Love

The parents and extended family of Ava Arnold would like to thank all who donated supplies or time, brought their beautiful cars to show off, or came and supported them this past Saturday at Ava's Labor of Love at Waterworks Park. A huge thank you to The Compassionate Friends for overseeing the event! 

People were loving the raffle items that were all donated by local businesses and friends, and thank everyone who won for picking up their prizes so quickly. The event was a huge success and we are looking forward to making it a yearly tradition. Check out Ava's labor of love on Facebook and let us know if there are new things you would like to see at next year's fundraiser. 

Ava even paid us a little visit while cleaning up and sent a rainbow to brighten the already beautiful day we were blessed with! 

If someone you know is suffering from a mitochondrial disorder contact the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation, they are such a wonderful organization full of knowledge and support. They are always excepting donations for research, thank you for making a difference in the life of another child with a mitochondrial disorder and honoring the life of our little Ms. Ava.

Air Show

I grew up in San Diego. We lived on the flight path to Lindburg field in the 1940's and 1950's I went to Bassett’s last weekend when the air show was going on. The sounds of the old planes brought back happy memories. I hope they come back next year. 

Thanks to everyone who worked to put on the event.
