Sunday School class holds bake sale for Devin Kohlman

Some of the children in the Resurrection Lutheran Church Sunday school class know Devin Kohlman and shared information with their classmates about Devin’s battle with brain cancer. Consequently, the class, led by Mrs. Judy Petersen, Sunday School Superintendent, asked that Devin be added to their weekly prayer list and decided to hold a bake sale. The proceeds were to be donated to the Kohlman family for Devin’s medical expenses. The class made posters and displayed them throughout the church.  The bake sale was held on Sunday, June 2. With the help of Mrs. Petersen; Marissa Carstensen, Sunday school aide; and the church’s congregation who donated baked goods, cash and purchased baked goods at the sale, the Sunday school class was able to raise a total of $503 for Devin.

The Jet Express: Ferrying Passengers for 25 Years

The Lake Erie islands have long been a popular vacation spot for Ohioans and beyond. Up until 25 years ago, the limited schedules of the traditional ferry lines cut short the stay for those who traveled to the islands for a simple day trip. However, in 1988, Put-in-Bay Boat Line Co., also known as The Jet Express, was established by four partners who envisioned an expanded service to the islands. The partners strove to create an innovative ferry service that would provide outstanding customer service, late night service to Put-in-Bay, and the fastest passenger ferry on the Great Lakes. Their dreams became a reality in the spring of 1989 when the Jet Express began service to Put-in-Bay from Port Clinton.
