On Monday, Dec. 9 at 9 a.m. in the Magruder Conference Center, the Magruder Hospital Auxiliary will host a free breakfast program to welcome the newest Auxiliary Members, as well as guests and anyone interested in learning more about the Auxiliary.
Currently the Auxiliary has over 250 members and the volunteers donate approximately 12,000 hours of service to the hospital each year. Members of the Magruder Auxiliary help with hospital book fairs and uniform sales and volunteer in a variety of capacities throughout the hospital including the Gift Shop. The Magruder Auxiliary also provides healthcare scholarships to local students. No matter the level of interest or experience, the Auxiliary has something to offer everyone.
Anyone interested in attending the breakfast is asked to RSVP by Thursday, Dec. 5, to Kathy Gallogly at 419-734-3131 ext. 3256.

The Marblehead Lighthouse and Keeper’s House are festively decked out in pine garlands and red bows, ready for the holiday season. The Lady on the Lake sports two LED circles, having had her 150-watt halogen bulb and green lens cover replaced late last spring. Sighted from more than seven miles away, her new light is also green but only uses 20-watts of electricity. It has a battery backup in case of power failure.
You've heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Well here's a new day in the Holiday Season - a day to give back. #Giving Tuesday is Dec. 3rd.
#Giving Tuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season. #Giving Tuesday inspires personal philanthropy and encourages individuals to give back in ways that are meaningful to them.
While the Brig Niagara was moored at Put-in-Bay for the closing ceremonies of the Bicentennial Celebration of the Battle of Lake Erie of the War of 1812, the Senior Captain, Walter Rybka, was kind enough to personally sign and date fifty 3’ x 5’ Commodore Perry “Dont Give Up The Ship” flags, on the day of the anniversary, Sept. 10, 2013.
The Put-in-Bay American Legion Post has numbered these flags 1/50 through 50/50. Each signed and numbered flag will is accompanied by an official Certificate of Authenticity, ready to frame, signed by the Post Commander and immediate Past Commander. Cost of the signed and numbered flag, with the certificate of authenticity, is $100. The Legion will mail the flags to the purchaser free of charge.
To order or with questions, call 419-285-5521, or mail checks to The American Legion, Post 542, P O Box 56, Put-in-Bay, Ohio 43456.
