Heineman family makes big donation

In a stunning act of community philanthropy, Mary Heineman, matriarch of the Heineman family in Port Clinton, turned over the keys to the old Heineman Distributing Company property on West Second Street in Port Clinton to the organization controlling the Portage Resale Center, represented by Bob and Linda Snyder. The actual event took place Tuesday morning at the Sutton Center, another endeavor of the Snyder Group of Companies.
Mary Heineman, widow of the late Harry Heineman, who along with his cousin Otto founded the distributorship in the mid 1930s, told the gathering that she and Harry had discussed what to do with the building. She stated that Harry told her that they ought to do something that will commemorate the accomplishments of the Heineman family and their contribution to the community. Now that the I’s have been dotted and the T’s crossed, she believes that Harry would be most happy with how the building will be used and how the Heineman name will be dedicated.
