Welcome to the College Club of Cincinnati

It's hard to believe we are starting our 130th year! Let's pray that it is a good one, filled with opportunities for philanthropy, great programs, delicious luncheons - and, of course, enjoying each other's company. Yes, Covid is still with us, but overall, conditions have improved to the point that we are able to continuing meeting in person. Thank goodness!

As you probably have noted in your yearbooks, the Program Committee has done a wonderful job this year; its members deserve a round of "virtual applause" for the varied offerings they have planned. These range from stellar vocal and instrumental performances, to fascinating presentations about little-known aspects of Cincinnati's history, to opportunities to assist some of the most vulnerable members of our community. I'm especially excited about the programs led by two of our own College Club members: Valerie Ubbes' "Staying the Course for Health and Vitality" in February and Sue Montieth's "The Taft Museum: From a House to a Home" in May.

We owe a big thank you to Glenna Baumbaugh, Paula Spitzmiller, Donna Perzigian, and Toni Miller for cleaning our storage closet. Thank you, ladies, for tackling that project and working hard to complete it.

On a sad note, I am sorry to have to report the death of one of our members, Karren Vedders. Karen died in August and she and her lovely smile will be greatly missed.

We are always interested in sharing the benefits of College Club with new members, so please invite some friends to upcoming programs so they can experience what we are all about!

Sincerely,

Marcallene Shockey

President, 2022-2023

LA SALLE BOYS’ ENSEMBLE: IT’S HOLIDAY MUSIC TIME!

Our annual holiday concert, filled with favorites, will introduce us to this talented and well-traveled musical group! Not long ago, the LaSalle Ensemble performed in a series of events in France to commemorate the beginning of the European liberation for World War II. On June 4, the Ensemble even participated in a parade and concert held in the town square of Sainte Mere Eglise. For the past seven years, the school has held an annual assembly to honor veterans which eventually led to this global opportunity!

21 May 2022 OHIO VALLEY VOICES: INNOVATION MEETS EDUCATION 5/21/2022 11:30 AM - 2:00 PM
OHIO VALLEY VOICES: INNOVATION MEETS EDUCATION

Ohio Valley Voices was established nearly two decades ago with the goal of teaching children with hearing losses to listen and speak clearly. Ms. Sentelik, an audiologist, will share the details that have made her small school based in Loveland so successful. She’ll answer questions like, “At what age do you begin to teaching deaf children? How do they hear? Why is there no lip reading or sign language like at other schools?” This organization is the recipient of a 2021-2022 endowment gift from The College Club of Cincinnati.

GET MESMERIZED!  POLISHED BRASS QUINTET

For over 25 years, the Polished Brass has been providing music for tri-state audiences. Backed by its large library of brass quintet music and with talented musicians to bring it all to life, it’s easy to see why this group is called on so often for summer concerts, weddings, graduations, and more. It was dubbed the “instant orchestra” by Jim Knippenberg, former Cincinnati Enquirer columnist, because it came together so quickly. Don’t miss this great time to sit back and relax! https://polished-brass.com.

Lifelong Learning

A wide range of carefully selected, thought-provoking programs stimulate the mind and inspire the soul of College Club members. A typical year includes programs focusing on local and national current events, history, culture, dance and musical performances – and a hilarious show featuring the club’s own thespians.

Luncheon Meetings

Delicious chef-prepared luncheons precede every College Club program, served on elegant table settings with linens and china plates. Table centerpieces creatively fashioned by College Club members – often with a seasonal theme – add a gracious touch.

Scholarships

Since the College Club’s creation more than 100 years ago, its members have cherished the role of higher education in their lives. Club members continue to give back to the next generation of young women through college scholarships that support their education.

A Proud History

The College Club of Cincinnati was founded in 1892, when female college graduates were rare. The original members committed to organizing as a club for the purposes of fellowship; intellectual and cultural growth; philanthropy; and civic service, which in the early days included assisting settlement houses in the community. In current endeavors, the club remains true to the spirit of its proud tradition.

Our Organization

The College Club of Cincinnati (CCC) is a group of college-educated women whose mission is 

"to promote a continuing interest and participation in philanthropy, the arts, education, social welfare, and civic improvement."
