To the Editor:

It takes over a year to plan and nearly 100 club volunteers to make the Port Clinton Artist’s Club’s annual Arts in the Park a success and we had a simply beautiful weekend to showcase Port Clinton’s lovely Lake View Park

Special mention and thanks must be given to Port Clinton’s Safety Service Director Olen Martin, Parks and Recreation Director Tracy Colston, and Administrative Assistant Sandye Ostheime. They were always ready and willing to assist with logistics to make our show successful.

Jerry’s Golf Carts on SR 163 generously loaned us two golf carts for the weekend and it was a tremendous help for members to traverse the park picking up trash or ferrying vendors to and from their cars.

Port Clinton Artist’s Club would like to express our gratitude for The Beacon’s timely coverage of Arts in the Park. The entire club works hard to make our event the best it can be and getting the word out to visitors clearly impacts our show’s success. It’s a win-win situation because our visitors and vendors in turn have a positive economic impact in Port Clinton.

Stacy Maple, host of WCPR’s Maple in the Morning, also discussed Arts in the Park on her show that reaches well over 75,000 listeners interesting in finding out what’s happening on the lake.

Way to go Port Clinton! Thanks to the combined efforts of all these factors we had another successful show. Remember Arts in the Park when you vote for the Best of the Best and see you at Arts in the Park next year on Aug. 1-2, 2020.
