Open letter to citizens from Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone

As the Mayor of this City I feel excited that we have made great strides to move the City in a forward direction. This would not be possible without the direction of our City Council; yes the Administration plays a very important role in that movement. But ultimately without the approval of Council, the administration cannot accomplish the things that move our City in a forward direction.

In the last 3 years working together with Council we have secured over 4.6 million dollars in grant funding for our City. This equals more than 6 million dollars in progress of our City. These grants are extremely competitive, more so than past years, as more communities, like our own, are applying for these monies to help with similar projects. Gaining the successful edge in such a competitive arena is through planning.

Last Art Walk of the season offers music, art and costume making

A “Goblin’s Ball” will invade downtown Port Clinton Thursday, Oct. 23, with 35 artists, special costume-making activities for families, and musicians “haunting” the streets, businesses and nightspots during the final Art Walk of 2014. The free family-friendly downtown art celebration features artists, live music and galleries, restaurants and other businesses taking part on the fourth Thursday of each month, from 5-8 p.m.

Families who visit the complimentary Costume Tent on Madison Street will have an opportunity to fashion a mask and patch together a costume out of recycled materials and art supplies. The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council (GPCAAC) will have a limited supply of masks and materials for kids to customize their own mask, and Lake Erie Adventure Play (LEAP) will have recycled cardboard, containers and donated fabric to unleash some creative costumes for Halloween. “My fondest memories of Halloween were coming up with fun ideas for costumes and then figuring out how to make it,” said GPCAAC President Carol Morgan.
