The Anchor was set in place and permanently “anchored” , on Thursday May 31st 2012, just in time for the Point Place Parade!
The anchor stands near the entrance of Cullen Park, nestled between the sidewalk and Summit Street, for all those driving, walking or bicycling by, to enjoy this magnificent piece of history.
The City of Toledo excavated the hole for the base, which consists of 8 yards of concrete, poured on Friday, May 25th.
A dedication is planned for Saturday June 30th, more information to follow!
Just want to remind and invite everyone that the “Visions of Cullen Park” is planning on having its scheduled Cullen Park and Light House clean up, this Saturday! The Cullen Park cleanup will start at 9 am, with the Light House cleaning starting at 11am. We will pick up any trash that has been “deposited” since the Boy Scouts did a cleanup a few weeks ago, thank you. While the Light House area also needs work, possibly weeding and raking the dried smelly grass. This will make the outdoor service that Pastor Mike will lead Sunday June 10th @11am, more pleasant! Want to thank Point Place Ace Hardware for providing the trash bags for this project!! See you there, bring rakes and hand tools!

Apparently last Saturday morning, March 7th, 2012, a individual took it upon himself to charge boaters $5 to launch their boat and pocket the money!
In the future, if some one is at the booth or anywhere in Cullen Park wanting to charge to enter or launch a boat, please call 911!
Since that incident, We have posted a brightly colored sign in the window of the toll booth, as pictured below, to make sure this does not happen again.
"No CHARGE" sign in toll booth window

Six paper clips are now permanently mounted to each side of the Kiosk. With these paper clips, it will be easier to post your information on the Kiosk, prior to this, people were using staple guns and nails, which is not the easiest way! There are currently two items on the Kiosk, first is basic information about Visions of Cullen Park- meeting time and dates, with web site. The second item is a list of dates of upcoming events at the Cullen Park and meetings through June.
