PC Fullbackers’ mom’s night out

The mothers of the PC football players enjoyed a night out Monday evening at McCarthy’s Pub to learn the game of football. The annual fundraising event is in its third year and going strong.  Each year a local business sponsors the event, so moms have an opportunity to meet the coaches and discuss football. The evening is filled with raffles of many donated items as well as items for purchase, like t-shirts and wine glasses, etched with the PC Fullbackers logo.

It’s time again to begin the search for the new Apple Festival Royalty Court. The Royalty Court will reign for a period of one year.

All court members must be residence of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District. Past Royalty members which have previously held a title (this excludes runners-up) may not compete for that particular title again. They may however compete for a different title.

Perch, Peach, Pierogi and Polka Festival

The Port Clinton Knights of Columbus would like to thank all those involved in making the 2014 Perch, Peach, Pierogi and Polka Festival a great success.  This year, more than 3000  people attended the festival.  Most were from out of town and several made very favorable comments about our beautiful city.   Without the assistance of over 250 volunteers, this festive event would not be possible.  

Many thanks go out to our suppliers, musicians, sponsors, volunteers, the City of Port Clinton, and especially our supporters.  Special thanks go out to our neighbors, Americas Best Value Inn, Mendoza’s Mexican Restaurant, and Fisherman’s Warf for their cooperation and assistance.  Plans are already being made for next year’s eleventh Perch, Peach, Pierogi and Polka Festival to make it an even bigger and better event.

C.O.R.D. Supports the Lighthouse Conservancy 

Port Clinton is a maritime community built on the Great Lake Erie some 200 hundred years ago. It is Lake Erie that brought the settlers here and it is the Great Lake that keeps most of us here. Most of us were born and raised here and will always live here. Maybe some of us have become accustomed to all that, but the small group of dedicated men and women in the Lighthouse Conservancy have not. They strive to honor our heritage.
