Maggie Beckford - Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce

Each state had a connection to the war, such as sending a regiment to fight, said Maggie Beckford, president of the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society and executive director of the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce.
The column is a burial place, a symbol of peace among the United States, Great Britain, and Canada, and a big tourist attraction, Ms. Beckford said. The island's roughly 500 hotel rooms, which include cottages and other rental accommodations, were booked for the nights of July 3 and 4, she said. "It's just an amazing structure that they would have put together back then," she said of the monument.

Maggie Beckford, executive director of the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Bureau, notes that the 116-year-old lighthouse, now owned by The Ohio State University, is actually a 45-foot tower attached to a two-story red-brick keeper's house, a design that bucks traditional late 19th-century design.
"The best view of it, actually, is from the water," she says.

The Register caught up with Maggie Beckford, executive director of the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce, to see if she has any suggestions on which town to vote for.
"I'm thinking Put-in-Bay," said Beckford, adding that north-central Ohio residents can vote once a day at budgettravel.com until the contest ends. "Vote daily," she said. Last week, Put-in-Bay was in fourth place among the 15 competitors, with 7.3 percent of the vote. But there's some work ahead if Put-in-Bay wants to catch up to first-place Lititz, which thus far has 21.8 percent. This year's bicentennial celebration of the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812 makes Put-in-Bay cooler than ever, Beckford said. Still, every year the town has attractions for all ages, including restaurants and bars featuring plenty of live entertainment. "Some people call us the Key West of the North," she said. The chamber is using social media to campaign for votes, posting announcements on Facebook and Twitter, she said.

Maggie Beckford, Executive Director of the Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Bureau, said the Chamber is recognizing Deputy Mettler, and EMS volunteers Duane Dress and Michael Sweeney, who were also killed in the plane crash December 9, 1983.
Ms. Beckford said Governor John Kasich is issuing a proclamation for this year's Blessing that names Mettler, Dress, Sweeney, and Rigoni. The Chamber also invited representatives from Homeland Security, and the US Border Patrol, to the event, Ms. Beckford said. This year's Blessing coincides with the Ottawa County Sheriff Department naming their 27-foot patrol boat the "Bruce E. Mettler. Ms. Beckford said that vessel would be the last to be blessed. Ms. Beckford, Chamber Director since 2001, was a reporter for the Port Clinton News Herald 29 years ago, and covered the accident story, and the men's funerals. "It was a shocking, and emotional experience; a small community losing so many people in such a tragic accident while in the process of trying to help another," she said. "Islanders who had winterized their boats put them back in the water, and went to search for their friends," she added.
