With Fourth of July coming up next week, we will need to move our deadline up for that publication of The Beacon. We are going to need all news and advertising submissions by this Friday, June 28 at the latest. This way, we can get The Beacon delivered well ahead of the big July 4th weekend.
In an attempt to keep our home delivered circulation intact, we have established a special e-mail address that will go directly to Circulation Manager Tina Britt. The address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact us if you want home delivery and are not getting it, or vice-versa. Thanks.
Sheila Farrant of Oak Harbor is our winner this week in our “Find Wylie” contest. She was chosen from among 100 entries who successfully found our friendly fish in the ad for S&H Blinds on Page 5B in last week’s Beacon. Sheila wins a $25 gas card graciously donated by Friendship Stores. Each week we hide Wylie Walleye in an ad and our readers, when one of them finds him, can either bring in a contest entry cut out of the paper or log onto our website … www.thebeacon.net … and let us know where he is, thus entering, and possibly winning the contest.

The 30th Annual Materion Chick Schaffner Memorial Charity Golf Classic was a huge success on Monday. Fortunately, the rains stayed away so we were able to raise lots of money for the American Heart Association and Stein Hospice. My thanks to our committee members and sponsors. I especially want to thank Materion, our Signature Sponsor. They have always been such a tremendous community supporter.

That landmark location has new owners who have renamed it Hartford House and they are bringing back their Saturday Seafood Buffet. The late Bev Goldstein would be so proud!
