Last Monday was the 31st annual Materion Chick Schaffner Charity Golf Classic, and it was a huge success. We hope to have generated over $20,000 to be given soon to Stein Hospice and the American Heart Association.
Much thanks to our incredible team that organized it all: Dan Franks and Kerry Velliquette from Materion; Tiffany Zinn from Materion Credit Uniion; Sara Hegerty from the Heart Association; My brother, Chuck Schaffner, and my wife, Mary Alice. Most of all, I want to thank Shelby Brossia and Amanda Michaels from Stein Hospice who were incredible organizers that helped make this event such a success.
Carol Cooksie was chosen from among 119 entries who found Wylie in the ad for Habitat for Humanity on Page 6A in last week’s Beacon. So, Carol wins our weekly $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 our weekly contest.
The 4 County Group (4CG), a collaboration created by Economic Development and Workforce Development professionals in Huron, Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca Counties, to address workforce challenges in the region, has completed its plan and is ready to implement action items.
Their first project is to create a series of videos to promote the region with the goal of keeping youth here and getting young professionals to return. It is for that reason that we are initiating a CASTING CALL, and we would like your help to recruit creative, outgoing youth to upload short videos to: https://form.jotform.com/202463216815148.
After the Friday, Oct. 2 deadline, all submissions will be reviewed by reps from each of the counties, and the top “STARS” will be selected to be part of a series of commercials. For more information about the 4CG, the plan can be viewed at ocic.biz/4cg-workforce-challenges. If there are questions about the casting call, please contact the OCIC.
The Marblehead Bank has joined with the American Bankers Association and banks across the nation in launching a first-of-its-kind, industry-wide campaign to educate consumers about the persistent threat of phishing scams. The FTC estimates consumers lost $1.4 billion to phishing scams in 2018 and the ongoing pandemic has only increased the threat. To combat phishing, the #BanksNeverAskThat campaign uses attention grabbing humor and other engaging content to empower consumers to identify bogus bank communications asking for sensitive information like their passwords and social security numbers.
On Friday, Oct. 23 most B-C-S students (except Grades 10 and 11) will be doing a Remote Learning Practice Day while WORKING FROM HOME. All Grades 10 and 11 students will be required to report to Oak Harbor High School for required testing (Pre-ACT and ACT) at 8 a.m. This includes ROLO students. This will be a shortened day for Grades 10 and 11. The end time will be announced soon.
