Gov. Strickland fires first shot Gov. Ted Strickland fired the first shot Monday night officially kicking off the 2010 National Matches at Camp Perry. Elected officials, distinguished guests and even a cardboard cutout of the 200th RED HORSE Squadron’s Col. Mike Skomrock were in attendance to celebrate the beginning of the competition.

The U.S. Congress and President Theodore Roosevelt founded the National Matches in 1903 to foster national defense preparation through marksmanship competition. The National Matches consist of the National Trophy Rifle and Pistol Matches and Small Arms Firing Schools, which are mandated by federal law and gov-

erned by the CMP, and the NRA National Rifle and Pistol Championships, which are conducted by the NRA in conjunction with the National Matches. Overall, the matches bring more than 6,000 competitors, volunteers, vendors and family members to Camp Perry each summer. 2010 CMP National Trophy

2010 fair kicks off Monday

Day on the lake celebrates tourism, sport fishing Ohio’s first couple, Gov. Ted Strickland and First Lady Frances Strickland, were joined by members of the media, representatives of the tourism industry, elected officials and conservation leaders to draw attention to Lake Erie during the 31st annual Fish Ohio Day on Monday. For the first time in event history, both the governor and his first lady were in attendance, which added some goodnatured rivalry to the mix. No one went without bragging rights — Gov. Strickland caught one of the first walleye of the day and the first lady’s boat caught more fish than a number of other boats, including the governor’s boat. A total of 165 fish were caught. “She is a better fisherperson than I am,” the Governor said. Reeling in fish wasn’t the only focus of Monday’s events. Strickland touted the importance of taking care of Ohio’s great lake, which will continue to help strengthen the state’s economic outlook. After a half-day of fishing under excellent conditions, attendees gathered to applaud local tourism efforts as well as discuss immediate threats like Asian carp and responsible land use. “Ohio’s future can never be separated from the future of Lake Erie, Ohio’s greatest natural resource,” said Strickland. “Lake Erie is a great example of how the conservation of our resources and the growth of our economy can be compatible goals. “Fish Ohio Day helps us focus attention on all that the lake represents, all that it means to our economy and our quality of life, and its importance to Ohio’s future,” he said. Ohio’s 1.1 million anglers spend an estimated $1.1 billion on fishing-related expenditures annually. Anglers contribute to local economies through the purchase

Anglers support local jobs and wages, along with hotels, cottages and other lodging, marinas, charter boat services, restaurants, grocery stores, bait and tackle stores, marine suppliers and other local businesses. Their expenditures spur a $480 million sport fishing industry along Lake Erie and create nearly 10,000 jobs, according to the

American Sportfishing Association. “Statistics measure the benefits of the lake; but numbers don’t tell the whole story,” said ODNR Director Sean Logan. “Just as important as numbers, the memories we have of time spent on the lake, afternoons fishing or boating, and just the sights and sounds of Lake Erie build

Dear supporters

Summer has officially arrived … It’s fair time! The fair is an exciting time for our community, but especially for youth involved in 4-H and/ or FFA, such as myself. I am Cobi Brough, the son of Dan and Jessica (Dewitz) Brough. I am 14 years old, a member of the Silver Spurs 4-H Club and looking forward to showcasing my projects at this year’s Ottawa County Junior Fair. I have put a lot of hard work and time into my projects this year, but it is a very rewarding experience. This year, I will be showing a horse, a beef feeder, a heifer, a market steer and a carcass steer. Like others, I am grateful for the memorable experiences and opportunities that the 4-H program pro-

The Beacon

vides. 4-H is a great program, but especially in economic times like we are currently facing, support of this program is very important. I greatly appreciate the support that you have shown in the past to this program. I am requesting that you continue to show that support so that myself and others can be afforded the same opportunities, enjoyment and memories of 4-H and the fair that our parents and grandparents still speak of today. The Junior Livestock Sale will take place on Friday, July 23, and the Back to the Farm Sale is on Saturday, July 24, both beginning at 10 a.m. I want to personally invite you to attend, and see the accomplishments of the youth of Ottawa County. If you choose to show your support, you

Please call 419-205-3284

will be given recognition at the sale and along with assisting in promoting the 4-H program. Your support allows a great way for free advertisement and is a tax deduction. If you are unable to attend, but would still like to support the program, you can send a check directly to me made payable to: Ottawa County Fair Livestock Sale. I will see to it that you get your recognition. Again, your support is greatly appreciated. As you may already be aware, the 2010 Ottawa County Junior Fair will be July 19-25 and I hope to see you there! Please stop in and visit me at the main beef barn to see my livestock animals. See you at the Fair, Cobi W. Brough

MIDDLE BASS ISLAND — Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director Sean Logan joined local and state officials Friday to dedicate recent renovations to Middle Bass Island State Park marina and other facilities. The ribbon cutting ceremony was followed by a special recognition of former ODNR Director Sam Speck, who led the department from 1998-2006. “While we come here today to recognize those whose vision and hard work made this day possible, we need to bear in mind the real reason we build marinas, open parkland and advance the cause of wildlife,� said Logan. “We will fight to conserve those things we know best. Love and respect for nature comes most naturally to those who have the most access to nature. This marina represents yet another doorway Ohioans now have to their natural world. � Renovations at Middle Bass Island began in January of 2001. Since then, several significant improvement and expansion projects have been completed over the past decade. An initial 50 new temporary docks were immediately installed for boaters, with many modified for permanent use. Public input was sought for development of the facility’s master plan, a conceptual document that provides the vision and flexibility for continuous improvement as resources allow. In 2006, a 20-site primitive campground was constructed, and in 2008, the large-scale marina entrance and basin improvements project — including reshaping of the marina basin, new entrance channel and revetments, floating dock anchorage piling and other improvements — was complete. The marina floating docks project was completed in 2009, which included installing shore-side utility connections and floating docks, for a total of 264 docks. A 100,000-gallon elevated water storage tank has been installed with water and sewer lines connecting to Lake Erie Utilities. Construction work slated for this summer includes staff housing along with a permanent shower and restroom building. Ongoing design projects include plans for the marina office and harbormaster building. Design services for the project were performed by BBC&M Engineering Inc., of Dublin; CTI Engineers, of Akron; Feinknopf, Macioce Schappa Architects, of Columbus; Fred Hunt, of Columbus; MSI Design, of Columbus; Poulos & Associates, of Sandusky; and Woolpert Consultants, of Cincinnati. Construction work and logistical support was performed by Bayes Inc., of Perrysburg; Gateway Tank, of Avon; Huffman Equipment Rental, of Eastlake; Kwest Group, of Port Clinton; Perram Electric, of Wadsworth; S.A. Comunale Co., of Fremont; and Speer Bros., of Sandusky. Other guest speakers for the ceremony included State Rep. Dennis Murray, Ohio State Parks Acting Chief John Hunter, ODNR Division of Watercraft Chief Pam Dillon and Jim Hodgson, chief of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Wildlife and Sports Fish Restoration.

FISH from 1A quality of life and a sense of community. Fish Ohio Day is one way to remind people of all that is at stake in the Lake Erie watershed.� Fifteen charter captains from the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association volunteered their boats so state leaders, members of the media, representatives of the tourism industry and conservation leaders had an opportunity to experience fishing the lake’s Western Basin. All of the participating boats brought in fish, making it one of the more successful Fish Ohio days in recent history. The 495 pounds of fish caught at this event were donated to the Victory Temple Food Bank. Located in Sandusky, this food bank serves families from the Port Clinton and Sandusky area.

Fun in the sun

By the time you read this it will be mid-July and definitely mid-summer. Are you having fun? If so, great! If not, try not to let the summer get away from you without some time in the sun and maybe at least a day or two — maybe lots more — of vacation. And about vacation, here is an account of an interesting summer life style: nnn

My newest edition of “Coastal Living” magazine has an article about a family who decided to spend a year at sea, living on a 30-foot sailboat. Parents with two daughters, ages 9 and 6, started in Maine and made their way southward along the eastern seacoast. They spent relaxing nights in numerous harbors before getting to Florida and even on to the Bahamas. The pictures in the article were wonderful. They displayed many aspects of life aboard, including one where the family was under way. Cooking, shopping, bread-baking, hair cuts, school work and laundry were some of the everyday “duties.” Swimming, meals with other boaters, arts (such as drawing), crafts and writing just for fun were among the leisure activities. I really liked the article but thought that spending that much time in a small space would not appeal to me. But the family that was featured liked the lifestyle so much they decided to try it for another year! nnn

I do enjoy reading my magazines — both the ones I subscribe to and also what I see at the local library or borrow from it to bring home. My pet peeve about modern magazines though, is the sometimes very light color used for the type. This makes it hard to read. Especially a nuisance are photo captions which, these days, almost always are in the area of the photo, not under it or beside it. If the type color is black, for example, and it runs into a portion of the photo that is very dark, the type becomes nearly impossible to read. Two magazines I like a lot have topics a bit different from the household hints, beauty tips and decorative ideas of many magazines that are familiar to me. Look at “Architectural Digest” for wonderfully sophisticated housing furnishings and décor. For hints and many photos of unusual clothing and fabric arts, check out “Threads.” Even if you don’t sew, you’ll enjoy seeing the novel ways that fabric can be used.

owned equipment. Or call 419-734-6730 for information. nnn

The Put-in-Bay Garden Club is hosting a tour of five beautiful gardens at residences on South Bass Island. A ticket cost of $25 entitles the bearer to the tour and a midtour luncheon at The Goat restaurant. Time is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 28. If you’re interested in attending, send your check to P.I.B. Garden Club, P.O. Box 815, Putin-Bay, OH 43456. And if you’re over on the island, take note of the baskets of flowers on the lampposts in deRivera Park downtown. These are the handiwork of the garden club members. And the flowers are looking great despite the recent intense heat — and despite the influx of June Bugs that hung around and dropped into them.

Does anyone have any they would let me borrow or buy? If so, call 419-734-2753 and leave a message, please. nnn

Also, here’s something that you fellows will enjoy. Men get together every Tuesday morning at Trinity United Methodist Church, corner of Second and Adams Streets, Port Clinton, for a prayer breakfast. The meal is followed by prayer for people and for community and world concerns. A speaker rounds out the morning and then you’re on your way to work (or the golf course) by 9 a.m. It’s open to all men and you will enjoy it.

nnn

Don’t’ forget that there is outdoor worship every Sunday morning at 8 a.m. in the parking lot of Mon Ami Restaurant. All you need to do is drive in and then sit in your car for worship. Singers lead in singing the hymns. There is always special music for an anthem. On Aug. 1, Communion will be served. This service is hosted by Trinity United Methodist Church at Port Clinton and the service is the same one that is offered in the church sanctuary at 10:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome to attend. Oh, and don’t forget this: on Sunday, July 25, there will be a bake sale for anyone who is interested in purchasing some homemade goodies to take home.

“I’m a Real Cool Cat!!” You can be cool, too! Call today to find out how to save up to $3,000* in tax credits and manufacturer’s rebates on qualifying high efficiency Carrier cooling and heating systems. Now that’s being a Real Cool Cat in more ways than one!

nnn

That reminds me. I’m looking for any kind of equipment used to make candy (to use with a church youth group).

I went back into the Ida Rupp Public Library at Port Clinton and took a couple of friends from out of town to see the wonderful quilts. This was fun — to look at them with someone else — and I saw lots more of interest than I had seen before. There are probably at least 50 quilts; most are not as large as bedcovers, but instead, would be used as wall hangings, table covers or in other ways. The colors are intriguing. Some seem to spring off the wall. Others are subtle and less defined. It would be difficult to “judge” these but an expert, I guess, would be able to do that. There are only a couple I would not want to display and that is not because of the workmanship. It’s because the colors or design choice would not fit into any room I have. Even these would work out fine for someone else, though. I urge you to see this display. The quilts are truly works of art and some are breathtakingly gorgeous. Nearly everyone would find a quilt to like. Enjoy them now. I don’t know how long they’ll be hanging there.

“Tea” was the subject of a program I presented for the members of the new garden club at Put-in-Bay. The meeting was held at The Goat. Foods served were typical fare for afternoon tea: scones with clotted cream and strawberries. This was accompanied by a wonderfully robust iced tea. We had thought we’d serve several flavors of hot tea, but the weather was just too doggone hot for anyone to enjoy that. That took place last Wednesday and I thought I’d melt into a puddle just getting over to the island. (But then Thursday seemed even hotter. The temperature gauge in my car said 97 degrees in the early afternoon that day.) Anyway, about the program on tea: We discussed the history of drinking tea. It’s one of the oldest beverages on earth and has been drunk for at least 3,100 years and probably much longer. Also up for discussion was the way tea is grown, harvested and processed. We also talked about the regions where it is grown and how it became so popular, first in Portugal, then England. Now there is a wonderful use of tea throughout most of the world. These days Africa is an emerging producer of fine teas. nnn

If you receive a notice in the mail (or elsewhere) that you can buy a copy of the deed to your home for $59.50 or any other ridiculously inflated price, don’t fall for it. First look through your important papers. You probably already have the original deed (you got it when you bought or received the real estate). If you inherited the property by someone’s will, the document you need is a “Certificate of Transfer” from the court. If you don’t have the certificate or the deed, go to the office of the Ottawa County Recorder, Room 204 at the courthouse, 315 Madison Street, Port Clinton. There you may make your own copy of the document for ten cents a page using countyIn September, Emily Wadsworth joined Stein Hospice as a nurse at the inpatient care center. Friends worried that working at a hospice center might be difficult for Emily, whose cancer was in remission.

way to buy insurance.

“Because I have cancer, I should be there,” the 61-year-old Clyde nurse told them. Emily’s career at Stein was brief, but her impact was vast. She served patients and families with compassion and dedication, never satisfied until all their questions were answered.

This spring she laid the groundwork for Emily’s Library. A room at the care center will soon hold books, recordings and computers to help educate and comfort patients and families. “I think one of the best gifts you can give a family is the understanding of what is happening,” she explained. Emily joined a Stein committee that was planning a caregiver conference so she could share her experiences from both sides of the bed. And in an effort to further reach out to others, she asked to be part of Stein’s advertising campaign. Emily wasn’t able to complete all her projects. She died April 8 at the care center, receiving the kind of care she once delivered. Stein Hospice helped Emily deal with her death on her terms.

Beware of offers to sell copies of deeds Property owners in Ottawa County are warned not to buy copies of their deeds at an inflated price. A letter has again been sent from private businesses to many homeowners in Ottawa County offering to sell certified copies of deeds for $59.50. A second copy of the deed is available at a supposedly “reduced” cost of $20. It is not necessary to pay a high cost to obtain copies of these documents. Virginia M. Park, Ottawa County Recorder, has warned county residents that the prices named in the letter are not a bargain. She says that copies may be obtained from her office where a copy of a deed (or any other recorded document) is available for only $0.10 per page. The entire copy of a deed would usually range from $0.10 to $0.40. It is not essential for the homeowner to obtain a “certified” copy of the document unless it is needed for legal purposes. Anyone mailing a request to the Recorder’s office should enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Include basic information such as the name of the property owner, location of the property, the approximate date that the property was sold or transferred and a check for the copy cost. By mail the fee is $2 per page. And it is only $1 for the entire document to be certified. Fees for copies and certified copies are established under Ohio law and no county office may charge more than the set fee. “Property owners don’t need to pay $59 and more for copies of their deed,” Park said. “In fact, most people already have the

Edgewood honored for Commitment to Quality Edgewood Manor Nursing Center has been recognized as a 2010 recipient of the Bronze Commitment to Quality National Award presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living. Combined these organizations have more than 11,000 members nationwide. There were 701 nursing homes and assisted living communities from across the country that applied; Edgewood Manor was one of 405 facilities to receive the honor. The award will be presented to the facility at the American Health Care Associations 61st annual conven-

tion in Long Beach, Calif., in October. “The commitment to quality designated by this award is a key first step to developing systematic, sustainable, personcentered care and services,” said Bruce Yarwood, President and CEO of AHCA/ NCAL. “We congratulate Edgewood Manor on this achievement.” Implemented by AHCA/ NCAL in 1996, the National Quality Award Program is based on the core values and criteria of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award program. It provides a pathway for providers

of long-term and post acute care services to journey toward performance excellence. Facilities begin their quality journey at the Bronze level where they are asked to develop an organizational profile including vision and mission statements, an awareness of their environment and customers’ expectations. Bronze applicants are also asked to demonstrate their ability to improve a process. Edgewood may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance for the Silver Achievement in Quality Award. The final step of the journey is the Gold Excellence in Quality award which requires the facility to meet the Baldrige Program for Health Care Criteria for Performance Excellence in its entirety.

Financial Focus

Gen X’ers must consider needs of three generations If you’re a member of Generation X — the age group born between 1963 and 1981 — you may well be in the busiest time of your life. You’re probably in the early to middle stages of your career, for one thing, and if you have children, they’re likely still at home. Yet despite the hectic nature of your days, you still have to look after the financial concerns of your children, yourself and possibly even your parents. This three-generational effort may seem challenging, but with some planning and persistence, you can help your family make progress toward a variety of goals. To begin with, let’s consider the needs of your children. Obviously, you’re already providing for their living expenses, so from an investment point of view, your biggest concern may be how you’ll help them pay for college. Here’s a suggestion: Put time on your side and start saving as soon as possible. You might want to consider opening a 529 college savings plan, which offers potential tax advantages. Saving for college is important — but so is saving for your own retirement. Consequently, you’ll have to find the right balance of resources to devote to these two goals. To avoid shortchanging yourself, take full advantage of your 401(k) or similar employersponsored retirement plan. Contribute as much as you can afford right now, and whenever you get a raise, increase your contributions. At the very least, put in enough to earn your employer’s matching contribution, if one is offered. Your 401(k) accumulates on a tax-deferred basis, and your contributions are generally made

with pretax dollars, so the more you put in, the lower your taxable income. You aren’t confined to investing in a 401(k), either, because you can also put money into a traditional IRA, which accumulates tax deferred, or a Roth IRA, which accumulates tax free, provided you’re at least age 59½ when you start making withdrawals and you’ve held your account at least five years. Once you’ve started saving for college for your kids and investing for your own retirement, you’ve got one more generation to consider — the older one. For example, you’ll need to make sure your parents have adequate financial protection for their health care expenses. If your parents have saved and invested throughout their lives, they may not need any financial help from you — but that doesn’t mean you’ll never be called upon to straighten out their affairs. That’s why now is the perfect time to ask your parents some key questions: Where are your assets located? Do you have a will? How about a durable power of attorney? You might think these inquiries will make you sound “selfish,” but the opposite is true: The more you know about your parents’ financial situation and estate plans, the bigger help you’ll be to them, and to other members of your family, if the day arrives when your parents need some assistance. It may not always be easy to act on behalf of three generations — but it’s worth the effort. nnn

Jet partners with Lake Erie Boat Week Inaugural boating festival to be held at the Huron Boat Basin Sept. 7-12 HURON — The Jet Express has entered into an agreement to support the inaugural Lake Erie Boat Week event in 2010. Lake Erie Boat Week is a national boating festival to be held Sept. 7-12, headquartered at the Huron Boat Basin, with activities to be held on Lake Erie and the

Huron River. Lake Erie Boat Week is a new event to the area, but is expected to attract 100,000plus people and potentially $5-$10 million to the local Erie Islands economy. The Lake Erie Boat Week event will consist of a Powerboat Regatta, “Fastest Boat on Lake Erie” Competition held on Lake Erie and an APR Powerboat Superleague powerboat race (100-mph boats), held in the Huron River and at the Huron Boat Basin. Included in this new part-

nership with the Jet Express is a special island-hopping trip planned from Huron to both Kelleys Island and Put-in-Bay for Powerboat Regatta participants and the general public at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7. Special discounted fares are being offered for this trip that will help to kick off the start of Lake Erie Boat Week.

PC man guilty of poaching A Port Clinton man was recently convicted of several wildlife violations in connection with a rare deer that he illegally killed in December of 2009, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife Brian K. Sims, 39, shot a hermaphrodite deer, an animal having both male and female reproductive organs, while hunting on private property in Sandusky County on Dec. 19 during Ohio’s extra deer gun weekend. Sims later sent photos of himself and the deer, which had an unusual set of thick velvet antlers, to several area newspapers who in turn published the photos along with related news articles. Huron County Wildlife Officer Josh Zientek and Sandusky County Wildlife Officer Brian Bury were both alerted to violations associated with the deer and a Wildlife Investigator followed up on the case which lead to Sims being cited for a total of seven violations in three different court venues. Wildlife Officers served a search warrant on Sims’ home and discovered that Sims had killed two antlered deer, including the hermaphrodite, on the same day after already harvesting his limit of deer in Sandusky County earlier in the year. Sims permanently tagged the hermaphrodite deer in Huron County, claiming it had been killed within the county. The second buck was permanently tagged in Ottawa County by Sims’ fiancée as one that she killed in Ottawa County. In addition, several sets of untagged deer antlers were discovered both in Sims’ home and at a storage facility he rented just a few miles from his residence. Sims’ convictions included providing false information to a deer check station, over limit on deer, possession of untagged deer parts, over limit on antlered deer, and hunting without a deer permit. He was ordered to pay fines and costs totaling $755.00 plus $500.00 in restitution. Sims was placed on probation and his hunting privileges in Ohio were revoked for two years. To report a hunting violation, call 1-800-POACHER. Callers may remain anonymous. Citizens who provide accurate information that result in a criminal wildlife conviction of the guilty party may be eligible for a monetary reward once the case is settled in court.

Plein Air Artists and wooden boats return to Lakeside LAKESIDE — A collaborative effort that blends the artistic expression of the Ohio Plein Air Society and the craftsmanship of the Lakeside Wooden Boat Society will create one of Lakeside’s most unique weekends of the Chautauqua season from July 16-18. This three-day event will host more than 55 artists from across the state as they paint in the annual OPAS Paintout. The artists will paint throughout Lakeside and the surrounding area; yellow flags will designate the artists. The term “en plein air,” means painting in “in the open air.” On Sunday, July 18, the Paintout will coincide with the Lakeside Wooden Boat Show as plein air artists and children, for a small fee of $2, are invited to paint along the lakefront from 1 to 3 p.m. This children’s event is sponsored by the C. Kirk Rhein Jr. Center for the Living Arts. A Wet Paint Sale and Show, held on the Pavilion lawn from 3 to 5 p.m., will showcase original paintings that were completed by OPAS artists during the weekend. The Lakeside waterfront will transform into an outdoor showroom of classic wooden boats as these cruisers line the dock and lawn of Ho-

tel Lakeside at the annual Lakeside Wooden Boat Show from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 18. There will be more than 30 wooden boats, each classified based on the year the boat was built. There will be historic boats (prior to 1918), antique boats (1919-1942), classic boats (19431975), early contemporary (19761984) and late contemporary (the past 25 years). There will be many activities throughout the day, including Sunday Brunch at the Hotel Lakeside Dining Room and Café, which overlooks the Boat Show, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; a variety of picnic food, provided by Travelers Cafe, for purchase in Central Park from noon to 5 p.m.; and tours of the Coast Guard’s 32’ Cutter beginning at 1 p.m. on the dock. Blue Lunch, an eight-piece band from Cleveland, will perform 1950s swing and Chicago blues at the Steele Memorial Bandstand from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Rick Dziak of Marblehead, and Jim White of Maumee, collaborated on the creation of the Lakeside Wooden Boat Show 18” x 24” poster, now available for $12 at Artists-NCahoots. White sketched the image, and Dziak finished the masterpiece with oil paints. White ran an ad-

vertising agency for more than 50 years in the Toledo Area. Dziak is an award-winning artist and has a signature membership in Oil Painters of America. He and his wife Mary own Dziak Gallery in Marblehead. The original oil painting, known is “Morning Rush Hour” and valued at more than $4,000, is on display at Artists-N-Cahoots. The painting was donated by Dziak Gallery to the LWBS. The LWBS will provide an opportunity drawing of the painting throughout the season and will announce the winner at the Chautauqua Season Closing Ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 5. Tickets are available at Artists-N-Cahoots, $5 per ticket or $20 for five tickets. Three-hour gate passes are available at the Lakeside gate for $5.25.

The theme includes anyball game (ping pong, football, baseball, dodge ball, tennis, basketball, soccer, golf) and includes support staff (like cheerleaders, marching bands, popcorn vendors, etc.) We have a special surprise this year, Muddy, the Toledo Hens Mascot, will be our parade marshal. He loves having his picture taken, so bring your camera. The parade is open to anyone, and only your imagination can limit your entry. Golf carts, classic cars, trucks, lawnmowers, tractors, bikes are all welcome to participate. There will be trophies, donated by the Kelleys Island Venture Resort, for the top three theme-related entries based on originality and imagination.

Get your fill of hotdogs, pulled pork and Italian sausage and sip cold beverages while shopping the craft and gift booths. Take in Mona Rutger’s Back to the Wild show. Fill the afternoon with children’s games and competitions that include a grueling 3-minute pretzel eating competition and a round of marshmallow golf. Bring your special pet and compete in the pet parade. There are gift cards from Pet Supplies Plus for the Most Talented, Best Costume and Pet that Looks the Most like its Owner. This is a day full of games, prizes and fun for the family. Put an island in your life with an old-fashioned, small town celebration.
