Little Alex Porter, son of Captain Brian Porter of the 14th Ohio Civil War unit, drew the winning tickets for the Wolcott Keeper's House raffle during the Lighthouse Festival encampment Saturday, Oct. 12. The winners were Bob and Annette Textor of Curtice, John Fritz of Port Clinton, Linda Kolinko of Port Clinton and Sue Lavoie of Marblehead.
Prizes were a framed Richmond print of the Keeper's House fireplace, a queen quilt and shams and $75 gift certificate from Martha and Molly's, and a Marblehead Destination bracelet from Emily's GSE Jewelers. All proceeds go to maintenance, programming, and restoration of the Keeper's House, home of the first keeper of the Marblehead Lighthouse.
The site was purchased, restored, and is maintained as a living history site by the Ottawa County Historical Society. To volunteer as a docent, or any other capacity, call Bill or Sharon Coder, 419-798-5832.
