Sandpiper Cruise on Wednesday, August 20
Instead of our regular August meeting, we are having a river/bay cruise on the Sandpiper!
The cruise will take place on Wednesday, August 20. We begin boarding promptly at 6:45 pm, and leave the dock at 7:00. This will be a lovely evening cruise operated by PPBA member Mary Dalby and her Sandpiper boat.
The cost is only $15 for members, and $20 for guests. This includes both your cruise and a light meal.
The Sandpiper is docked at Promenade Park at Jefferson and Water Streets in downtown Toledo. Come early to make sure you find a place to park and get on board on time.

This month’s general meeting for PPBA members and guests will be at Lighthouse Landing (not TYC!)
Lighthouse Landing Mall (operated by PPBA members Debbie Speegle and Kellie Schlachter) is located at 4441 Summit Street, across from Cullen Park. If you haven’t been there, this is a great opportunity to find out about Point Place’s newest mall, and learn about their business plan.
The meeting is on July 16, at 6:00 pm. Dinner will be provided by Kathy Carey, who operates Kathy’s Confections at Lighthouse Landing.
The cost is free for members, and $10 for non-members.
You can register in any of three ways:
- On our membership site (ppba.memberlodge.com)
- By email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- By calling CrossPoint Church at 419-729-0733

6:30 pm – Point Place Frog Rededication
7:00 pm – Free concert
Enjoy a free outdoor concert tonight at the library! The featured band will be My Sweet Patootie, a vintage style acoustic swing band. They are lots of fun! Bring lawn chairs or blankets, friends, and family and enjoy the evening!
The Point Place Branch Library is located at 2727 117th Street in Point Place.
Frog Rededication at 6:30 pm
Before enjoying the concert, help us welcome back our Point Place Frog – Handsome Prints! Our Point Place Frog is back on his pad at the entrance to Kleis Park (next to Fire Station 24 on Summit Street). He was vandalized last year but has been repaired and is as good as new. We will be welcoming him back officially, telling his story and thanking those who helped get him back where he belongs. So come down early and help us welcome our frog back.
Great turnout for the dedication of the Anchors of the Community Memorial!

The City of Toledo along with the Point Place Business Association and other community organizations are hosting the kick off of Point Place T-Town. T-Town is a concept Mayor Collins has taken from a program in Ireland called Tidy Town. It is a program to promote friendly, safe, clean and beautiful communities. Point Place has been chosen to be one of the neighborhood communities to initiate this concept.
