PORT CLINTON, Ohio – The Walleye Drop Committee recently honored the Port Clinton High School (PCHS) Key Club and presented them with a $500 donation.The PCHS Key Club is one of the Kiwanis International Leadership Programs and every year since 1999, the student group helps with the Walleye Drop kids activities. The community project and partnership began thanks to Kiwanian and Walleye Drop Committee person Volita “Vee” Reifsnyder. “The PCHS Key Club students continue to show leadership and dedication to strengthening their community by volunteering for this regional celebration,” said Lauren Schubach, Walleye Drop Committee Chair. “Our group works hard to create a fun, family-friendly event and we couldn’t do it without the support of our volunteers and sponsors.”
Planning has begun for a special Walleye Drop event this year to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Area residents and visitors are invited to voice their opinions about what they would like to see at this year’s event by taking a brief survey. One lucky survey participant will even win a $100 Visa gift card. Just visit http://goo.gl/peDIbR to take the survey.
The Walleye Drop committee is a volunteer group based in Port Clinton, Ohio. The Walleye Drop event features an iconic, 20-foot, fabricated Walleye that is hoisted three-stories in the air only to be lowered as the clock counts down to midnight. The event also features children’s activities, food and merchandise vendors, music and a fireworks show. Funds raised through the event are used to execute next year’s event or donated to area organizations.
