Removing the politics

Dear Residents of the City of Port Clinton:

As we all know by now, on August 30, 31 and September 1, Port Clinton is joining the Bicentennial Celebration of the Battle-of-Lake Erie, an historical event, which occurred almost in eye-shot of our own City. We should be proud to have been chosen as one of the major port cities for dockage of the famous Tall Ships from the 1813 battle.
