The Oak Harbor Development Group is currently working on a project for new playground equipment and other upgrades to the Tot Lot at Veteran’s Park this year. They have already applied for grants, and in meeting with local community groups, The Oak Harbor Lions Club challenged the Oak Harbor Rotary Club to make a donation, stating that they would match whatever donation the Rotary Club gives. The Oak Harbor Rotary Club accepted their challenge and donated $500 towards the playground project. Pictured here are members of the Oak Harbor Development Group receiving the $500 donation from Chuck Stolz from the Oak Harbor Rotary Club. The Oak Harbor Development Group wishes to thank the local organizations for the donations and support and will continue working on projects to enhance the community and downtown areas. The Oak Harbor Development Group is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization run by volunteers. All contributions to the organization are tax-exempt and all funds collected are put back into the community. If you would like to get involved with the Oak Harbor Development Group, please call 419-898-3500 and ask for Mike.
