Former Port Clinton Mayor (and former Marine) John Fritz served as master of ceremonies for the moving Memorial Day service at Port Clinton Yacht Club. This service honored those who lost their lives at sea. Wreaths were cast into the river from the City Harbor Patrol boat to honor them.

The Past Commodores of the Port Clinton Yacht Club, in their dress white uniforms, lent a sense of formality to the Memorial Day Service at Port Clinton Yacht Club honoring the Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and Merchant Marines who died in service to their County.

A lone wreath floats in the waters of the Portage River in honor of those who died serving their Country on the oceans and seas.
