Port’s great, says happy camper

Port Clements has heard from a very happy camper who enjoyed his August visit to the village. Milan Lacika of Houston was so impressed with Port that he wrote a letter to the mayor and village staff when he got home. Council read the letter at its meeting last Tuesday (Sept. 2). Mr. Lacika first praised the village’s Sunset Park campground, picnic area and bird watching tower, saying the site was especially impressive for such a small town. “Your park attendant, Cheri, is extremely helpful and well informed: I don’t think you could find a better person to represent your area to visitors,” he wrote. Mr. Lacika and his wife were also impressed with the Port museum. “A museum so well-filled with documented historical displays and restored equipment from past industry is certainly rare for a small town,” he wrote. “The photo album display detailing the collection and restoration of the machinery must be unique. Port Clements has a bunch of fantastic volunteers as well as people donating items for display and I hope this letter gets tot hem as my expression of encouragement and appreciation.” The selection of organic food and fresh-baked goods at Bayview Market, as well as the store’s helpful staff, also caught the attention of Mr. Lacika, who said it was great to find more than just the usual junk food that fills the shelves of small stores. Administrator Heather Nelson-Smith told council members that she had forwarded the letter to Bayview Market, the museum and campground attendant Cheri Brooks.
