All Hands On Deck Put-in-Bay Well Attended

All Hands On Deck Put-in-Bay- Over 40 people participated in the All Hands On Deck rally at Put-in-Bay on Monday, July 3rd, at 10 a.m. The walk began at the  Put-in-Bay Village beach and around DeRivera Park. Walkers displayed the American flag, Don’t Give Up the Ship flags, Ohio flags, Village of Put-in-Bay flags, and Blue flags representing the blue waters of the Great Lakes. Lake Erie is essential to the environment, economy, and everyone’s way of life and the All Hands on Deck Rally hoped to draw attention to the problem.

Lake Erie and the Great Lakes are in trouble. The 2018 Federal budget proposes eliminating funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The Initiative Restoration Program is solving problems: toxic algae, the Asian carp, invasive species, and a host of other issues related to the health of Lake Erie and the Great Lakes. Lake Erie cannot afford to lose this funding and the efforts to make the lakes a better place. The walking rally hoped to call attention to address the funding issues for Lake Erie and the Great Lakes.

It is hoped that people will contact US representatives and US senators to request – to plead with them – to keep funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. A Blue Marble was handed out during the walk. The marble will remind people of the blue waters of Lake Erie and the Great Lakes and to keep the waters of the Great Lakes as blue as the Blue Marble.
