“It is time to support our students... this event is a chance to get the community to come out and support each other, as well as to have fun,” said Pamela Shirtz, co-chairman for the levy committee.
“This event will be a family fun, family friendly event,” explained Shirtz. “There will be food, games, corn hole tournament, DJ, raffles, a silent auction, 50/50 drawing and so much more.”
With everything above mentioned, it should be not only education, but a ton of fun.

WHAT: Pirate Day Fest
WHEN: 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., Saturday July 13
WHERE: American Legion, 3615 Hayes Avenue, Sandusky
COST: $10 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and students
Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens, which includes a lunch of hot dogs, pizza and chips. Any money made from the event will go toward the levy and for any future levy.
However, Shirtz said admission is free for any who just want to come out and learn about the levy. ”If people don’t want lunch or to participate in the drawings, then admission is free,” she explained.
Levy goodies will also be available to pick up, to show your support back home.
“We will also have levy shirts, yard signs and flyers available for people to pick up,” said Shirtz, “We want people to come out and learn more about the levy and why it is important that it passes.”
The levy is on the August 6 ballot and its passing is crucial to the survival of Perkins’ schools.
Perkins’ Schools superintendent, Dr. Jim Gunner will also make an appearance at the pirate fest. “Dr. Gunner will have a table and will be able to answer any questions if the public has any,” said Shirtz.
Although this year will be first time this event has been hosted, the committee is hopeful for a positive response to continue the event annually. “We hope to host this event every year,” said Shirtz.
