Kaptur visits Lakeview Estates

On Tuesday, April 30, U.S. Representative Marcy Kaptur came to Lakeview Estates to present vegetable plants and seeds to the residents there.  Kaptur is promoting community gardening and healthy eating.  She presented a short program on growing your own food and emphasized how much money you can save by gardening, the benefits of the fresh fruits and vegetables and the exercise gardening provides.

Port Clinton Mayor Vincent Leone was also present and provided kneeling pads and garden tools for the residents.  It became obvious that more soil was needed for the garden boxes, that the gardens could not be planted until more was obtained. Leone made a phone call and within the half hour there was soil to fill the boxes and then he helped in filling the boxes.
