Main Library exhibit showcases students artwork from Cincinnati Public Schools
03/01/2014 - 04/20/2014
Visit the Main Library to view works by some of the city’s most talented young artists. The Cincinnati Public Schools City Wide Art Exhibition will showcase artwork, including drawings, paintings, sculptures and photographs, from Cincinnati Public School students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The exhibit is presented in partnership with Cincinnati Public Schools and will be on display in the Main Library’s Atrium from March 1 through April 20.
The City Wide Art Exhibit has a long tradition dating back to the early 1970s when it began at the Cincinnati Gas and Electric Company. Now displayed at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, each Cincinnati Public School art teacher is encouraged to submit four exemplary artworks created by their students during the current school year.
The show represents four grade level groups, K-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. Each piece of artwork submitted is entered into a media category. There are eight media categories including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, crafts and graphic design.
The student’s work is judged by artists, art educators and other professionals related to the field of art. The work is judged for its originality, unique presentation or use of materials and the skill demonstrated in creating the artwork.
Each student receives a certificate and blue ribbon for having their work chosen to hang in the atrium’s display cases. Special awards are presented to gold seal winners and best of show winners in each grade level division. These awards are presented during an evening ceremony by the Board of Education in May.
The Main Library is located at 800 Vine Street. Visit www.CincinnatiLibrary.org or call 513-369-6900.
Proceeds benefit the St. Bartholomew Athletic Association (SBAA). The mission of SBAA is to sponsor and promote athletic activities for the youth of St. Bartholomew, Our Lady of the Rosary, St. Clare and other affiliated member parishes and students of John Paul II Catholic School.

Fundraiser for Terry Carroll
In Support of
In his fight with Cystic Fibrosis
Terry is 33 & has been battling Cystic Fibrosis (a lung & digestive disorder)
since infancy. His health has deteriorated to the point that he has been placed on the list for a double lung transplant. Transplant will take place at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio Terry got the call on January 30th 2013 that he has been officially placed on the transplant list with a lung allocation score of 37.5. The lung allocation score is a new system to keep patients who are running out of breath from running out of time. Since the original score was given his has been changed several times because his disease is worsening at a very rapid rate. His current score is now 46.84. The transplant team says that he could get the call any day. His entire family thanks you for your willingness to support Terry, Jasmin & Dakota financially and ask that you include them in your prayers.

Ty Taylor Benefit
Ty Taylor Fundraiser
On January 15, 2014 the lives of the Taylor family were changed forever. Three of the six family members were involved in a horrible head on collision. Their youngest child, 3 year old Ty has sustained life-altering spinal injuries.
This family is going to endure many long months in rehabilitation at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The excellent care he has already received from all the CCH staff is absolutely incredible.
In hopes of getting Ty the continual medical care he so desperately needs, we are holding a benefit for Ty on Saturday March 15th at Turfway Park Race Track in Florence, KY from 5:00p.m. to 10:00p.m. It will be a fun filled night. There will be food, raffles, split the pot and silent auctions.
We are asking for any materials/tickets/supplies or fun items you or your business may be able to donate towards raffle baskets and silent auctions to help raise money for this precious little boy. Anything and everything will be accepted and very much appreciated.
Donations can be mailed to:
Kris Dimuzio - 7452 Big Horn Court Burlington, KY 41005
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at 859-835-1229 or by email email@example.com.
We thank you for keeping Ty and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. He has a long journey ahead of him but the family is filled with faith, hope, and optimism. With God, ALL things are possible and miracles happen every day.
Blue Ribbon Ceremony
Location Tom Gill Chevrolet : 7830 Commerce Drive, Florence, KY
Web link http://familynurture.org/content/2014-child-abuse-prevention-month-awareness-actitivites
Activities will take place on Monday April 1st, 2014 at Tom Gill Chevrolet. Tom Gill will host the ceremony, which begins at noon and is free to the public attend. A light buffet lunch will be available starting at 11:30 am courtesy of Tom Gill and City Barbeque.
April is recognized nationally as Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Blue Ribbon Campaign is a community wide effort to recognize our collective responsibility to prevent and confront all forms of child abuse and neglect and Family Nurturing Center is hosting the Blue Ribbon Ceremony to kick off April Child Abuse Prevention Month!
Local officials, families, law enforcement, businesses and community agencies will join together to proclaim April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Northern Kentucky. Following the ceremony, guests are invited to tie blue ribbons along the white picket fence facing the interstate to serve as a visual reminder of child victims of abuse and neglect.
Family Nurturing Center is honored to have Larry Gildea and Dan Ryan provide our keynote address. Larry and his wife Jan shared the very personal and tragic story of the loss of their beloved son Doug to suicide, who was a victim of child sexual abuse. The Gildea's broke the silence of their family's tragedy in a feature article of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Dan Ryan was the reporter of this incredible story and both have graciously agreed to share this story at the Blue Ribbon Ceremony.
Please email Tracy.firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additonal questions!
