The lovely rose garden in front of Firelands Presbyterian Church honors Dr. Jay Mann, Professor Emeritus of Music at Heidelberg College in Tiffin, where he was Professor of Voice and Chorus for 29 years. After retiring and moving to Lakeside in 1998, Dr. Mann and his wife, Margaret, were musicians at Firelands Church. Dr. Mann also served as President of the Musical Arts Series in Port Clinton, and coordinated pre-concert talks for the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra. He retired fully in 2012, and moved to Colorado Springs to be closer to his family.
