LAKE FRONT CALENDAR of EVENTS...

2022 Calendar of Events

By Catharine Hadley, Arts and Entertainment Editor, catharinehadley@gmail.com

The theme of this column is "trying new things." I'm happy to be starting this new project of writing the entertainment column for Leisure Living Magazine! I've done all I could to make the entertainment listing complete and varied, so there should be something for everyone. Although I've done my best to make sure all the information is accurate, please go online or call ahead to confirm your plans.

Any suggestions and details of your upcoming events can be sent to me at catharinehadley@gmail.com.

On Stage & In Concert
& Other Celebrations

Spring is the perfect time to explore our local attractions without the summertime crowds. Some restaurants debut new menu items, and many businesses offer pre-season deals. Our part of the world is shaking off the winter hibernation and getting ready for more hours of sunlight - and fun.

It's the perfect time of year to ask, "What's new?"

What's New At Sandusky Maritime Museum

The Sandusky Maritime Museum is now part of a nationwide effort that makes going to museums more affordable for some families. "We just became part of the Museums for All Initiative," museum executive director Molly Sampson said. "It's to help families receiving food assistance get reduced rates to access museums." Visitors who can show a SNAP or EBT card get half off the price of admission.

Most visitors stay at least an hour at the museum, which has activities for all ages. "We have a lot of kid-friendly activities." Children can use the interactive exhibits, practice tying nautical knots, and do a "make and take" craft by building a model boat. Students in STEM classes can learn about navigation and meteorology.

History fans will find more than just information about boats and boating. "It's a wide range. We cover local industry, commercial fishing, and ice harvesting," the museum director said. The museum also has an antique engine room and a rotating collection of historic boats in the Howman Boat House.

A new acquisition - as of last year - is a 1934 locally-made sailboat, thanks to a local donor. "For a very brief period during the Depression, the Matthews Boat Company out of Port Clinton started making sailboats," Sampson said. "It's just a really great example of a pretty rare boat."

History programs hosted by the museum are in the following schedule. "We are always open to do outreach programs. We speak to other groups when we're asked," Sampson said. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday until Memorial Day, then Tuesday through Sunday through Labor Day.

Quilt Show Returns In July

The Ohio Star Quilters' Guild normally has a show every other year, in part because artists need so much time to create their elaborate pieces. This July, the guild will host its first show since 2018. I anticipate the extra time will mean extra creativity and craftsmanship.

"We usually wind up with at least 100 quilts," event organizer Susan Koblin said. The pieces can be as large as a quilt for a king-size bed, or as small as a placemat. Smaller pieces can be used as wall hangings or "table toppers".

One member, Catherine Lewis, makes garments and is one of the few people who still quilts by hand. "She always incorporates some sort of quilting aspect to the garments she's been making. She's won a number of awards for her pieces," Koblin said.

"Almost every fiber art is represented by something that people in our guild have accomplished. It's really quite remarkable. I look around and I'm in awe of our talents myself."

This year a boutique will be a new feature to the event. Visitors will be able to purchase various types of fiber art work, including knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching, and rug-hooking. Vendors will also be available.

The show is scheduled for July 15-16 at Peace Lutheran Church in Port Clinton. Raffle tickets will be sold for baskets of fabrics, quilting supplies, and a quilt. "We have a beautiful quilt that will be raffled." Demonstrations and make-and-take crafts will go on throughout both days of the event.
