For Stan Galliher, community involvement makes a difference

Stan Galliher moved to Port Clinton in Nov. 2012 and has been enjoying the community ever since.  Port Clinton offered various activities Stan was interested in and that’s what drew him to the area. He’s had the chance to explore and meet many in the community.  He began his journey by participating in the United Way Volleyball challenge and served as a bell ringer for the Salvation Army. Stan joined Lake Point Baptist Church where he has met many people including his adopted family. He has continued to get involved in the community by participating in a walk for Autism and joining the Ottawa County Relay for Life “Little Victories team” (Ottawa County Board of DD).
