Among the great pleasures of living on South Bass Island is the opportunity to explore the natural environment during all four seasons. Especially interesting and satisfying is the nature walk at Scheeff East Point Preserve on a winter’s afternoon. Today’s excursion was a discovery of ice art!
Carole Gorski made a quick business trip to Put-in-Bay today–all of three hours, round-trip. However, the aerial views she captured will preserve forever nature’s stunning, early ice formation near Catawba Island. The photos were taken in full-color; however, the lack of color is a byproduct of the winter season. A little bit of blue is visible at Miller Boat Line’s Catawba Dock.

Put-in-Bay Panther Basketball teams engaged in fierce competition today against Monclova Christian Academy. The Put-in-Bay girls won in the closing seconds with a score of 20-21.

Pursuant to a winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service, Put-in-Bay Panther Basketball for Saturday, 18 January 2020, is cancelled. Coach Shuffenecker said, “The weather has not been kind this season, but we look forward to our next home game on Monday at 1pm versus Monclova Christian Academy.”
