Alexa Haskin receives state award

Port Clinton High School senior Alexa Haskin was awarded the Robert F. Lucas Lt. Governor Award for her leadership in the Kiwanis Club sponsored Key Club. As a Key Club member, this distinct honor is for those that go above and beyond as a leader in Key Club. Alexa created a newsletter, held monthly meetings, organized a beach cleanup, and worked with fellow Key Club members to help the Humane Society make Christmas ornaments for those less fortunate. She also helped to charter a new Key Club at Tiffin Calvert.

Arbor day thank you

The City of Port Clinton Tree Commission held their Annual Arbor Day Celebration, Friday, April 26th.  With the help of the following community members and local children, we were able to plant two beautiful Green Mountain Sugar Maple trees at the northwest corner of Jefferson and Second Streets. Cub Scout Troop 361, under the direction of leader Kim Auxter, provided the Color Guard and Flag Bearer. Singer Jaclyn Favro performed the National Anthem beautifully, accompanied by her ukulele. Girl Scout Daisy Troops #10204 and #10215, under the direction of leaders Dina Rodgers and Amber Twarek, lead the Pledge of Allegiance. Pastor Bruce Batchelor-Glader of Trinity United Methodist Church provided both the opening and closing prayers.  Readings were provided by Roseann Hickman who shared the poem “The Heart of the Tree” and Pam Schraidt who recited her own work “The Beauty of a Tree.” The children of Mrs. Moon’s Preschool Classes jumped right in to lead the planting ceremony by placing the first shovels of soil over the trees. Ed Urban of Otto and Urban prepared the site and set the trees for planting. Thanks to the generosity of the following local businesses, we were even able to provide refreshments to all in attendance. Coffee Express donated refreshing lemonade while Andy’s Party Mart, Chefsbest Catering and Community Market all donated delicious cookies for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you to everyone who participated - it was truly a fantastic day as community members of all ages came together to beautify one corner of our fine City! 

Thank you to all!
