The Port Clinton Friends of the Cemeteries would like to once again thank the many people who have supported us with monetary donations from our most recent annual letter appeal. Special thanks to the Ottawa County Community Foundation for awarding us grant money towards our road paving project. Thank you Larry Hartlaub and Dupps Printing for your donation to our chicken BBQ and to all who purchased dinners and made it a success. And to the Port Clinton city workers who placed the refuse foundations and installed the section marker posts in both cemeteries, your work is greatly appreciated.
The Port Clinton Friends of the Cemeteries would like to clarify what seems to be a misunderstanding of our powers within the cemeteries. We need it known that we have no control over the mowing or the trimming as this is the sole responsibility of the city. With that being said we would strongly encourage anyone who has issues in this matter to please call the city and let them know your concerns. Please continue to share your ideas and concerns with us. Your thoughts and ideas are vital as we move forward to prioritize what is needed to sustain the dignity of our cemeteries.
With gratitude, Dana Alvarez, President Port Clinton Friends of the Cemeteries
