Toledo Yacht Club not shutdown, hopes to be open another 100 years

Members received an email last Thursday informing them of a shutdown that surprised some. But the email was wrongly worded and the shutdown wasn’t until the weekend.

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) – The Toledo Yacht Club has been a fixture at Point Place for more than 100 years.

Last Friday, however, the yacht club’s parking lot was empty and the building was cordoned off. Members received an email this Thursday informing them of a shutdown that surprised some.

But the email was wrongly worded and the shutdown wasn’t until the weekend. Members say they worked to get things right for an event.

“We’re fine. We’re strong. We haven’t closed our doors. We have events planned every weekend for the next two months,” said Cheri Kaintz of the Toledo Yacht Club.

Members say they hope to stay open for another 100 years.
