Friends of the Cemetery

Yes, someone believes in us and it feels so good! Over the last year and a half the Friends of the Port Clinton Cemeteries have been concentrating all their efforts on finding a way to pave the cemetery roads. We knew it would not be easy because the price tag on such a project is large, but we also knew that it was a project we must undertake. It was decided the best way to achieve our goal was to do it in phases starting with the outer perimeter of Riverview Cemetery.

We have been holding fundraisers and applying for grants but because of the enormity of the project at times it felt out of our reach.

Yet, someone believes in us and that someone is the Stenson Foundation! Because of the generosity of the Stenson Foundation phase one will be complete before this year comes to a close. We all have a moral obligation to honor the dead and for that reason our mission statement is “to ensure that the properties in and around the parameters of the cemeteries are always worthy of those who lie within”.

From the bottom of our hearts we offer thanks to the Stenson Foundation not only for understanding the moral obligation we all have, but also for trusting in us to carry out the mission by paving the cemetery roads.

Once phase one is complete we will continue to strive for our goal of completing all other phases of this project and we ask for the communities support in our future fundraising efforts.

Sincerely,
Port Clinton Friends of the Cemeteries

Waterworks Park development

I have been reading Bob Walls letters and, as many people do, I disagree with his idea of what will happen if we develop Port Clinton. I also have lived here 70+ years.  I have watched factories close and store fronts sit empty. We have had Mayors and Council Members who were afraid to rock the boat so nothing has been done to bring jobs and visitors to this town except the Jet. 

My family members have traveled to many other small towns around the U.S. and this kind of development is what took us there. Take a good look as you drive down Perry Street I see nothing to bring me to that park. And, yes, they won't be $28 an hour jobs, but where did Mr. Wall work that he made that kind of money! WOW! 

Bring us some of those jobs and we will give up the Park development! We the citizens voted so that the Council could proceed with the development.

I love this community.
