Issue 6

Issue 6 is about people having a vote. The yard signs on Issue 6 in and around Port Clinton seem to be confusing a lot of people. Issue 6 is about the people having a vote on selling or leasing our public park properties. 

Still confused? Well ask yourselves this: Do I want to decide whether our parks should be sold or leased? I would say yes. Do I want to keep our parks open for every man, woman and child to enjoy? I would say yes! Do I want to protect our future? I would say yes! If you really and truly want to protect our parks future, I would encourage you to vote yes on Issue 6. Your Parks, Your Vote – YES on Issue 6.

Magruder Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship Fund Committee

On behalf of Magruder Hospital Auxiliary Scholarship Fund Committee, I’d like to thank all of the people who donated items, money or time to our "Dollars for Scholars" fundraiser. It takes a group of committed people to undertake a project as large as this. Our outstanding committee also proved themselves more than “up for the task” and I’d like to personally thank each and every one of them for all their help. 

As this was a first for the Auxiliary to do this type of event, I am pleased to say it was a resounding success. I’d also like to thank Paula and Frank Murphy for their generous sponsorship of the venue, food and drinks.

Auxiliary Vice President
"Dollars for Scholars" Chairwoman
