Run With The Pack Trail Race

08:00 am

AJ Jolly Park has been a staple in the Campbell County Community for more than 50 years now. They have held festivals and events that many people in the area have patronized throughout the years. And, although most people know AJ Jolly for the wonderful camping opportunities it offers, there is a little-known treasure within the park that is hardly taken advantage of…

The trails at AJ Jolly Park were built and are maintained by the Northern Kentucky Horse Network. Because they are primarily used as horse trails, most patrons of the park either don’t seek them out or don’t think to use them. However, thanks to the ingenuity of the trail developers, these trails are a perfect place to go when you’re looking for a quality workout with a beautiful view!

This is to help with some of those expenses.

Happy Tails – a family fundraiser to save & protect homeless animals

12:00 pm

What: Happy Tails “Fundraiser” for Angel’s Rest Animal Sanctuary (ARAS)
When: Saturday, August 26, 12-6 pm
Where: REVEL OTR – Urban Winery / 111 East 12th Street, Cincinnati
• All-day balloon pops with free prizes inside
• Live Entertainment
• Happy Tails cocktails for adults, mocktails for the kids
• Happy Tails cups and gear available for purchase.
All proceeds from Happy Tails will go to help support ARAS non-profit efforts to rescue and rehabilitate senior dogs and cats. ARAS has also launched a pioneer program called ELDER PAWS™, which is matching seniors with senior pets as a caring way to improve quality of life for both.
Revel OTR Urban Winery is a boutique urban winery, wine collective and event space specializing in promoting local, regional and family-owned wineries. Located in Cincinnati’s historic and progressive OTR neighborhood, Revel specializes in handcrafted small batch wines using a process that originated in Italy by the Maieron family from generation to generation. The 3,000 square-foot historic building can house up to 44 barrels of wine in the basement with the first and second floor being used year-round for patrons to enjoy wine, food and friends.
Zagat Review:“I’ve been to Revel several times and love it–great ambiance, great people and great drinks! It’s got an urban casual vibe with an eclectic mix of patrons, 4 curated rotating local taps, creative wine cocktails, and excellent house made wine. The merlot margarita is a work of art. The bar’s exposed brick, local art, and unique presentation (wine is served in vintage juice glasses and food on vintage glassware) really set the place apart from your average wine bar. Revel is definitely at the top of my OTR short list.”
Angel’s Rest Animal Sanctuary (ARAS) was founded by Perla and Michael Kinne in 2009. Longtime animal lovers and advocates, Perla and Michael discovered an affinity for homeless pets, most notably older dogs and cats.
At ARAS, we believe there is a perfect home for all rescues, even if that home ends up being our own sanctuary. ARAS will never euthanize an animal due to space, inconvenience or behavioral issues. All animals that enter our doors are guaranteed the best life possible, for as long as that life may be. A 501(c)3 nonprofit, ARAS relies on the generous support of donors. It also operates a 10,000 square foot Thrift Store in Amelia that offers a wide variety of products for the home, including furniture, housewares, jewelry, toys, electronics and more. Pricing is steeply discounted and all sales benefit homeless animals.

Our information is displayed on the the poster on our district website, along with more information. The event will be from 9 am to 4 pm at Miami Meadows Park, on Rt 131 in Miami Township.
