Police Chief James Howarth accepted a $10,000 check from Cheviot Savings Bank Charitable Foundation June 29. The gift will be used to buy defibrillators for each of the department’s police cruisers. “I had budgeted to buy the new defibrillators to replace the ones we have,” Howarth said. “The ones we have are so old, we can’t repair them or get the parts needed. “I’ve had to make $118,000 in budget cuts and, unfortunately, the defibrillators were on the list of cuts.” Kevin Kappa, foundation chairman and township resident, said once he and others on the foundation board heard about the situation, they decided to take action. “This gives us the opportunity to provide much needed equipment to our community and demonstrates our commitment to helping individuals and the police and fire departments,” Kappa said. “It’s important to give back to the community,” Kappa said, adding that the list of foundation donations include scholarships and community events.

Price Hill Will and the East Price Hill Business Association have teamed up once again to present the festival, which is free to the public. “It’s a festival for celebrating all the different cultural aspects of Price Hill,” said Beth Andriacco, community engagement coordinator for Price Hill Will. “It’s a fun day.” She said the event will feature live music throughout the day, food, activities for children and several artists who will set up booths for displaying and selling their work. “A lot of the artists who participated last year have expressed interest in doing it again this year,” she said. Artists who took part last year offered a wide variety of works. Pieces included paintings, jewelry, abstract, watercolor, folk art, photography, mixed media, digital and fashion. Andriacco said organizers are still looking for more artists to be a part of this year’s celebration. “We would like to get artists whose works represent different cultural groups. The goal is to have a very diverse group of artists,” she said. Organizers would also like to build on the success of last year. Andriacco said it’s estimated 400 people turned out for the inaugural festival. The beer and wine tastings were a big hit last year, and will See FESTIVAL on page A2
