To the people of Port Clinton:
The Friends of Port Clinton Parks is pleased to announce that we have completed the paving of the small pavilion in the southeast corner of Lakeview Park. The pavilion was originally built through a grant from the Ottawa County Community Foundation and matching funds from the City of Port Clinton.
By action of Port Clinton City Council, this pavilion will henceforth be known as Underwood Pavilion, in memory of the late Bob Underwood. Bob was an original incorporator of The Friends of Port Clinton Parks, a tireless worker, and a great friend of this community. We will dedicate the pavilion in his memory on Saturday, Oct. 27, “Make a Difference Day” at 1 p.m. The community is cordially invited.
We are also pleased to report that The Friends of the Parks has, thanks to a BP grant obtained for us by Beck Oil Suppliers, been able to have the gazebo in Adams Street Park painted and sprayed for spiders. Mrs. Maria Moon headed this project for the Friends. The work was done by Seaway Contractors.
The Friends are also planning to purchase ten new picnic tables to be used in the various city parks and to replace the temporary barriers dividing the north parking lot with an attractive new set of dividers. These will, of course, be our spring 2013 projects.
We have had a very good year thanks to the generous support of our community. Our Yard Sale in the Park, headed by Roseann Barker, was very successful. Again, we thank you for your support. With your help, we will continue to work to make our city parks more attractive and useful to our community and our visitors.
Friends of the Parks,
