older-couple-in-coldA very Happy New Year to all of our readers! 2015 is already proving to be a busy year for us here at Deupree House.

We attended the Annual Boar’s Head Yule Log Festival at Christ Church Cathedral. Our lifelong learners made plans for the winter semester of the OLLI at the University of Cincinnati. Nationally renowned pianist—and Piano Department Chair and Artist in Residence at CCM— Awadagin Pratt joined our community for a very special program. Accomplished speaker and longtime Cincinnatian, Sarah Blanken Kahmann, stopped by to tell us about Hershey, PA and her experiences growing up in the town built on chocolate.

All that, and we’re not even through the first full week of January! Here’s a look at a few highlights that are still to come.

3:00 PM: CCO Concert

We’re so pleased to be joined this evening by a string quartet from the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra for a private classical pop concert in the Event Center!

2:00 – 4:00 PM: Fitness Zone Open House

Whether you’re new to the Deupree House community, or just made a New Year’s resolution to exercise more, this event is for you. Residents who need a refresher can head down to the Fitness Zone to test drive our “something for everyone” equipment and hear an informative talk from the Wellness team.

There will be live staff and resident demonstrators on the equipment, a drawing for a $10 Visa, autographs from race car driving instructor, Ted Sarran, snacks and free water from the Fitness Zone’s drinking fountains.

10:00 – 11:00 PM: Seamstress Alterations

Step out in style in the New Year!

Given the popularity of our visiting seamstress, from now on, Cyndy will be stopping by to provide services on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Appointments will work just as before, with residents signing up for a preferred time to have their clothing altered, then simply paying upon receiving the bill.

Tuesday, January 20

7:30 PM: Terrace Park and the Great John Robinson Circus

Did you know that a local Cincinnati community was once the winter home of a well-known national circus? This evening we will be diving into the story of the famed Robinson Circus, which wintered in Terrace Park, through Marilyn Nelson’s past experiences and a live model replica of the Circus! We’ll even be providing circus-approved refreshments— popcorn and drinks.

10:30 AM: Trip to the American Sign Museum

Deupree House is headed out on a trip down memory lane at the American Sign Museum.

As founder Tod Swormstedt notes, “signs and sign making are a fascinating reflection of America through the years,” and this quirky, unique museum will be taking you on a journey through the decades and centuries of development. This visual delight will allow you to reflect on history, technology, and the culture of our local communities.

7:30 PM: Jack Nebergall: First Humans

Have you ever wondered about how our continent was settled— long before the pioneers took to the plains in covered wagons? Do you know who the first humans here in America were? Well, Jack sure does. He’ll be giving a presentation about the first humans in America, who they were and how they arrived.

Wednesday, January 28

2:00 PM: Omnimax Film

Surely you’ve seen the promotion around town about the inspiring and eye-opening film, Jerusalem, that’s currently playing at the Omnimax. The movie—which is narrated by actor Benedict Cumberbatch of the BBC’s Sherlock and the critically acclaimed 12 Years a Slave, follows three young Jerusalemites and their families– Jewish, Christian and Muslim—through a year of celebrations and events that mark life in the enigmatic city and offers expert commentary from noted archaeologist Jodi Magness.
