This & That

Leisure Living Magazine recently had a story about the OWLS 40th anniversary. The OWLS is short for Old Women’s Literary Society, a group of PIB ladies who share and discuss what they read.

Two things begin on November 1st – “Waving Season”is when islanders can wave to each other as they drive past each other on the near-deserted island roads and actually know each other. The other is the legal use of ATVs on island roads for the next six months.

The Carriage House, one of Put-in-Bay’s oldest and largest souvenir shops, was built in 1922 (we think).

We’re glad to hear that the Put-in-Bay Yacht Club will reopen Saturday, November 16th, on Saturdays and Wednesdays this winter season for dinner and bar service.

A group from the Senior Center took a fun mainland trip to visit President Rutherford B. Hayes home and museum one day at the end of September.

The gate by the office at the South Bass Island State Park has been removed for the winter. Feel free to enjoy a drive or walk through the park.

Jennifer Glauser-Marshall posted on social media that 75 kids had been signed up to trick or treat at 42 stops on Middle Bass Island. That’s even more kids than we normally get at Put-in-Bay for Halloween.

Although nothing is set in stone, we hear there may be a few changes for the Wine Festival and Oktoberfest next season, plus there are ideas floating around for changes for some of the other island events. Like old film, we will keep you posted as things develop.
