I LIVE UNITED kick off campaign

Local bars, restaurants and taverns are joining together to raise money for the United Way. November 7-9 patrons are encouraged to head to downtown Port Clinton to kick off the I LIVE UNITED t-shirt campaign.

Participating businesses include: 1812 Food & Spirits, Bell Mell Tavern, Cielo Grande Tapas Bar, Clinton House, McCarthy’s, Rosie’s and Slater’s. These businesses will be inviting their customers to donate to the United Way. The campaign is simple; each bar and/or restaurant will have blank paper t-shirts available.

He has spent the better part of the last 10 years studying the crumbling of the American Dream among America’s Youth. He caused quite a stir locally over a year ago when he wrote a piece for the New York Times, and Port Clinton appeared. His research provided a fairly grim picture of his home town.
