Wecome back! After many long months in which the persistent pandemic Covid virus prevented in-person meetings of College Club members, we are finally able to begin a new program year together in the familiar setting of the Cincinnati Woman's Club. It's going to be quite a homecoming!

I am especially excited about reuniting with College Club friends for our first program on September 18,  when the Board of Governors will greet members at an 11:30 a.m. reception, followed by luncheon in the tea room and a delightful "Salute to Rosemary Clooney" presented by vocalist Nancy James and pianist Brian Cashman.

Please check out this website or the 2021-2022 College Club of Cincinnati Yearbook for other memorable programs to add to your calendar. These include a wonderful array of uplifting cultural, educational and philanthropic programs in Greater Cincinnati. Our main philanthropic project this year will benefit Hope's Closet, a West Chester-based non-profit that assists foster families. Jami Clarke, executive director of Hope's Closet, will describe how Hope's Closet is making a difference in foster families' lives by offering encouragement and material support. We will be conducting a donation drive in connection with this presentation: diapers, sizes 3, 4 and 5; diaper wipes; and boys and girls pajamas, sizes 4-12. Please contribute as generously as possible.

Now that we are resuming in-person activities, I hope you will give some thought to inviting friends who may be interested in becoming members to our great programs. Our Membership Chair is Toni Miller, who can be reached at Toni.miller@fuse.net or 513-382-6935.

After such a long absence, I couldn't be more excited about enjoying the year ahead together!

DICKY DWEEB, DETECTIVE: “THE MUSICAL”

Once again, we return to the “Golden Days of Radio.” In this episode, the folks in Dull Valley have decided to make a movie even though none of them have any talent!

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.
