President’s Perspective Dear JLC members and friends,


reetings! As we wind down from Winter and a full year of COVID, I am looking forward to Spring with a renewed sense of purpose. Since last Spring, we have pivoted in ways we never expected, took on new challenges and offered grace in between. I am sincerely grateful for each of you and your commitment to the League and the work we do. Each moment of work our members have contributed to the League and community means a little more than ever before. A few highlights include; Our Membership Engagement team has launched a new “Coffee Talk” program pairing JLC members with another member who is “new” to them for 30-minute monthly coffee chats. This has been a very fun exercise in meeting new members and catching up with long time friends. The JLC Gardeners partnered with our Program Acceleration team to organize Sustainers and Actives together over three days to wrap more than 5,000 diapers for Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank, as well as decorate Sweet Cheeks’ offices for the holiday JLC members wrote notes of encouragement to senior citizens experiencing isolation as part of United Way’s goal to draft 15,000 notes distributed through 17 partner agencies. We helped combat food insecurity by assembling 1,000+ “power packs” for Freestore Foodbank, and hundreds of sandwiches for Our Daily Bread We hosted JLC supply drives that include Push 4 Pencils to benefit Crayons to Computers, kitchen kits for La Soupe, and goodie bags for babies and families in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) with Snow Bunny Baby Projects

Renovations at the Columbia Center are well underway. They include fresh paint and carpet throughout the building, new chairs for the auditorium, updated meeting room spaces and soon, basement updates! Our Annual Fund Campaign continues for its seventh year with a goal of raising $15,000 towards our operating budget. Our Program Development committee is hard at work selecting a new initiative for the League to support for the upcoming three years. We have had two sessions with the four non-profits as we narrowed down the applicant pool to two for our vote in April. Along with the Board, EMT and our councils, I know we are excited to end the year strong with our commitment to the League and community. Be a Builder: of trust. of community. of people.

andO has been working extra hard this year to keep the Junior League of Cincinnati’s volunteer service active. Given the Covid restrictions, they have had to be even more creative with their efforts. One of the co-chairs this year, Kirtley Krombholz, described how they have had both in-person and virtual events so that people with varying comfort-levels could still be involved with the program.

at the Freestore Foodbank, St. Francis Seraph Dining Room, and St. Vincent de Paul. The League also hosted a sandwich-making event for Our Daily Bread at the Columbia Center, which continues to be a crowd favorite! The League members attended a package assembly event for The Snow Bunny Baby Project which is a drive for basic needs for families with babies in the NICU at hospitals in the area.

The virtual events turned out to be quite successful. In late summer and early fall, CandO held a school supplies drive for RefugeeConnect and made “kitchen kits” for virtual classes with La Soupe. In the fall, CandO held a gift card drive for Saturday Hoops and a “Push for Pencils” with Crayons to Computers. Kirtley says that “The virtual events have gone better than expected and we are hoping to continue them until everyone feels safe to volunteer inperson again.” These events did a great job of tapping in to the League’s desire to serve the community, despite the continuing restrictions.

In November, CandO continued hosting Sweet Cheeks diaper wrappings, which will continue monthly for the rest of the League year. Through the end of January, CandO offered a coat drive for St. Vincent de Paul. CandO recruited members of the League and their families for family volunteer day, where volunteers wrote notes of encouragement to senior citizens with United Way.

Some of the in-person events have included volunteering

In the spring, the CandO committee is looking forward to a winter accessory drive with the Boys and Girls club. They also hope to add events with Saturday Hoops and Girls on the Run as well.

From the Archives: Avon Tennis Tournament and the JLC By CASEY BINDER


oday, the Western & Southern Open comes to mind when thinking about major tennis tournaments in Cincinnati— but in 1975, the Avon Tennis Tournament served as the major fundraiser for the Junior League of Cincinnati. The Avon Tennis Tournament was a part of the women’s tennis circuit happening in various places across the country. Winners of the Tournament would have the opportunity to play at Madison Square Garden in New York City for the championship.

career that managed many notable events in Cincinnati, she viewed every event like a ‘startup,’ thinking about what will appeal the most to each audience she’s targeting. Although mediums for marketing look different today, the intention is still the same.

JLC member Chris Stubbins managed the public relations and marketing efforts for the Tournament, and said it was a very successful fundraiser. At that time, the JLC relied At that time, Avon was heavily on newspaper coverage, radio ads and corporate headquartered in Cincinnati sponsorships to secure funding. Stubbins said, following her and the JLC leveraged the Avon Tennis Tournament as a fundraiser for several years into the early 1980’s. Eventually, the League transitioned to an ice skating tournament as our major fundraising event, with Stubbins continuing to manage public relations and marketing for this initiative. She also chaired it for a year. If you’d like to learn more about these unique fundraisers from the past, keep an eye on the JLC website and social media pages. There will be an upcoming podcast from the Archives taking a deep dive into these events! #JLCincy | 4

Coming Soon! BLOOM: Fashion Show By ASHLEY YANZA


pring can’t seem to come fast enough this year. Warmer weather, the smell of blooming flowers, and freshly cut grass come to mind when thinking about spring. The ability to potentially travel to faraway places makes this year a truly spectacular year after the wild ride that was 2020. This year, our Junior League of Cincinnati members and friends will get the opportunity to experience the magical, transformative power of springtime in the form of bold new fashions at the Bloom Fashion Show. Co-Chairs of the Spring Fundraiser Committee Sadie Bonifas and Ashley Yanzsa were inspired to bring the thought of travel and spring to usher in and celebrate the warmer weather. Two years ago, the Fashion Show was hosted at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza in downtown Cincinnati. Due to COVID-19 health concerns we had to pivot our location and the layout of the Fashion Show. As safety is our number one priority, we have moved to Waypoint Aviation’s Hangar at Lunken Airport.

be imaginative. Where would you go? Maybe to a new coast? A new beach or mountain range? Maybe to a new continent or country? Wherever you go, let’s have fun! We will feature boutiques from previous years, as well as one or two new ones. In addition to the Fashion Show, attendees will get to enjoy a boxed lunch, pop-up shops, and a silent auction being held online. All of our vendors can be shopped locally for the exquisite looks that will be shown at this year’s Fashion Show. Catherine Eifrig, one of our returning models commented “I love attending the Fashion Show every year. I look forward to it each spring. I always make a day out of it with my girlfriends.” Grab your friends, your family, your significant others and come enjoy this truly wonderful event. Let’s all disappear into simpler times for an afternoon and rediscover our love for the League, our love for travel, especially our love for clothes and being in each other’s presence once more. Mark your calendars for May 15, 2021. We can’t wait for you to join us on a magical afternoon that we will surely remember through the years to come.

Event space where the Fashion Show will be held.

Waypoint Aviation’s Hangar at Lunken Airport greets us with a sophisticated feel. Walking in, you feel as if you’re about to hop aboard a plane with your closest girlfriends for a fabulous getaway—grab your kids, your significant other, your parents, whoever you want to travel with to a faraway land. We, as a committee, want you to feel as if you’re about to jet off to a new country or city. We are calling on you Junior Leaguers to buy a table and decorate it with the place you want to travel to first when everything is safe. Have fun and #JLCincy | 5

Program Development Update By KATIE DULLE


he Program Development Committee, an ad hoc committee formed every three to five years, is currently evaluating potential partners for the Junior League of Cincinnati’s next program partnership. For this round of Program Development, the JLC decided to focus its search on community organizations dedicated to addressing adverse childhood experiences and basic needs, such as housing, food security and clothing. This decision was based on research conducted during a community needs assessment in 2017. This year’s Committee has paid special attention to feedback collected from JLC membership, Program Acceleration and former Program Development Committee members in order to formulate a new process for this year. That feedback was also used to synthesize key learnings and a list of desired characteristics in the next JLC program partnership. Given the unusual circumstances of Covid-19, the Committee drafted the request for proposal making clear that the JLC partnership is not intended as relief funding, but instead is a formal, three-year partnership designed to address an unmet community need and leverage the skills, talents and experiences of our volunteer base. It is critical that the program partnership aligns to our mission and affords our membership the training and volunteer opportunities that define the JLC, while also creating a mutually beneficial relationship to help the community partner grow. This year’s process began with an all-call to membership for partner recommendations, JLC membership’s personal connections and an assessment of past applicants. From those sources, the Committee invited twenty-two organizations to complete the RFP. One of the changes implemented by this year’s committee was a bifurcation of the application process into two independent phases. Phase One of the application process was intended to collect high-

#JLCincy | 6

level information about each organization, their proposed project, and the types of ways the JLC can help from a volunteering standpoint. From the first wave of applicants, the Program Development Committee and additional volunteers from across the JLC selected five organizations to move onto Phase Two. The Phase Two partners offer a diverse set of services, project ideas and volunteer needs across the Cincinnati area while also ranging in organizational size and maturity. The partners considered in Phase Two include The Children’s Home of Cincinnati, Family Nurturing Center, Give Like a Mother, Rosemary’s Babies, and Women Helping Women. Phase Two of the application process asks the prospective partners to dive deeper into the community’s unmet need, reasons the organization is best poised to address this need, and the specific details of the organization’s strategic plan. To assist in this phase, Program Development volunteers are paired with each partner as dedicated liaisons working collaboratively to create the proposed program partnership. After the Phase Two applications are submitted, the scoring sub-committee will meet again to discuss each partner and advance semi-finalists to inperson presentations. The final two partners will be invited to present to the JLC during the April General Membership Meeting for a vote, where membership will determine our next program partnership.

Spotlight on Sustainer: Dionn Tron By CASEY BINDER s the anticipated onset of 2021 arrived with a long sigh of relief, we’ve all spent the last few A months reflecting on how this year will be different,

better. Take a moment and consider your life as it is today. What is something you’re doing now that you’d like to continue a year from now? How about forty years from now? Dionn Tron, President’s Advisor, has had an amazing tenure with the Junior League that spans forty years of commitment and leadership. Upon speaking with Tron about her experience, it’s evident that her passion for the Junior League and her community is as strong today as ever before. She got her start in the Junior League of Cincinnati in 1981 and immediately immersed herself in opportunities. Tron, a marketing and strategic communications expert, began a career at Procter & Gamble while juggling her League involvement. In the early years, one of her favorite experiences was volunteering alongside Jeanne Morrison to support the group Kids Helping Kids. Tron remembers this experience as a rewarding one as she was able to witness kids helping other kids overcome addiction.

31, 2020. Effective June 1, 2020 she is the President’s Advisor and sits on the Board of Directors with this role. Out of the many commitments Tron has made to the League, she considers this her most valuable. The Sustainer Council is now a part of the Executive Management Team (EMT), and mentors other League leaders through the wisdom they’ve gleaned over the years. But Tron isn’t stopping there. She hopes to be elected to the Nominating Committee where she’ll have the opportunity to ensure the best leaders are in place across the League. While Tron’s League experience is a strong statement, her passion is even bolder. Throughout life changes and periods of unknown, she’s always found the League to serve as a certain kind of home.

Tron held numerous positions during her time in Cincinnati, working on multiple projects and chairing committees until she left in 1989 to follow her career to South Bend, Indiana. She joined the Junior League of South Bend and jumped right in. Alongside volunteers from the University of Notre Dame, she participated in a project to open a homeless shelter at the University with the unique mission of providing shelter to entire families.

From there, Tron’s career took her to various places from New Jersey to Connecticut where she was able to leverage her Junior League membership to foster connections in all the new places she went, all while holding multiple leadership roles focused on marketing and strategy—her bread and butter. Tron made her way back to Cincinnati after taking a position with Miami University to oversee their marketing strategy. Once a Sustainer for the JLC, she realized Sustainers had a lot of value to add to the League but needed a direct way to contribute. With the prompting of former Sustainer Council Chair Saralou Durham. Dionn’s term as VP ended on May

Snow Bunny Baby Project

JLC members gathered virtually and in-person to purchase supplies for families served by the Snow Bunny Baby Project, an organization started by one of our own members to supply basic needs to families with babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Lexington, Cincinnati, Florence and Louisville. The virtual aspect involved purchasing items from the Amazon wishlist and following that event, members gathered to create goodie bags for the babies and their families. #Giveback

Sweet Cheeks Diaper Wrapping The CandO

Committee continues to provide opportunities for members to volunteer at Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank. Volunteers gathered at the Columbia Center and sorted, counted, and wrapped diapers in preparation for pick-up from the various Sweet Cheeks partner agencies that deliver the diapers and kits to families in need. #SweetCheeks

JLC advocates for SB13 and SB256 By KATIE BLANK


he JLC has a long and storied history as an integral part of our community and has always worked to be a beacon for women of purpose in Cincinnati. Several years ago, we began to dedicate time, talent and resources to improving our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) work, both within the League and in our community. The goal is that our community sees itself in the League and that all our women feel included, no matter their color, background, or socio-economic status. Driven by our incredible membership, our past leaders began at the most basic level, talking. As our conversations increased, we were driven to dig deeper and implement more robust work. We began by embedding our DE&I efforts into the Executive Management Team by creating the VP of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion position. We have held deep discussions about microaggressions, how we can create a more welcoming environment and how to have the League look more like the community we live in. We had training sessions led by our own members and speakers such as Janine le Sueur (AJLI’s Vice President of Programs) and Dima Ghawi (author of Breaking Vases: Shattering Limitations & Daring to Thrive - A Middle Eastern Woman’s Story). This past summer we acknowledged the deepest injustice members of our community feel and increased our commitment to fighting racial inequality. Our Board of Directors and Executive Management Team, elected by the membership, voted to support and lend our leadership, led by the YWCA, to the Hamilton County Commissioners’ Resolution on declaring Racial Injustice a Public Health Crisis. As a result, racism was declared a public health crisis in a unanimous vote by Hamilton County commissioners.

both internally and externally. October 2020, our League successfully voted to adopt our Racial Injustice Position Statement and our committees are committing on every level to increase our DE&I work. For example, our Columbia Center committee is asking vendors to fill out a survey that captures their commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. The survey helps in not only choosing a diverse group of vendors, but also shows them JLC’s commitment to equity, in effect encouraging them to think more deeply about their commitment. Our Tour of Kitchens: Takeout Edition is ensuring a more inclusive experience with closed captioning on our three special episodes highlighting community chefs and mixologists. Our Curriculum Development committee has implemented this year the microaggression training into the New Member curriculum. It is very important that the JLC fosters equity and inclusion from the beginning, and this year it starts with our New Members. Our Sustainers have created a DE&I liaison position so we can continue our important work on all levels of our membership. This year, our Members continue to work on ensuring that diversity, equity, and inclusion are reflected in everything we do and we invite each one of you to join us in this effort. We as Junior League women strive to be civic leaders in our communities. As such, we should hold ourselves accountable for our own racism. We must do the work and speak out.

Additionally, several members joined AJLI in its efforts to combat racism and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion by attending the 21 Day Racial Equity Challenge. This challenge provided participants with materials and tools that we are bringing back to our membership. Having deeply honest conversations with women from other Leagues allowed us to reflect on our own League’s efforts to be more inclusive. As we have dynamic speakers and presenters at our GMMs, offer training to our members and use our collective voice to advocate for our community, we promise to continue to implement DE&I into our work #JLCincy | 10

he Junior League of Cincinnati is filled with so many women who work, raise a family, care for others, give back to the community and much more. We are thrilled to highlight two of our many members who shared their family and career experiences from the past year. Back in March 2020, when the world turned upside down from the coronavirus, active member Megan Stacey did not know what to expect. She, like all of us, had no idea that the resulting virtual world would become a state of normalcy for many months to come. Megan and her husband Drew have two children, Emory (7) and Ford (4) with baby number three on the way in 2021. Megan owns and operates her own Real Estate business, The Megan Stacey Group. She has a background in education and immediately applied her skills to her kids being homeschooled. She created daily schedules for the whole family to follow, including a fun activity to look forward to each week. She even had her kids hop in their toy Power Wheels car to “leave” and “come home” from school each day, helping everyone separate school and work times from the rest of daily life. The real estate industry in Cincinnati never slowed down during the pandemic. Megan and her team have been working around the clock to keep their buyers and sellers happy. In the spring of 2020, her company noticed that a lot of families decided to make a move to the suburbs to give their families more room. They saw a rise in the search for home offices and spaces for homeschooling. They had to utilize “drive-thru” closings and continued to find homes for families who were moving across the country. They moved most of their appointments, whether it was to sell a home or search for a buyer, to Zoom and FaceTime. Some families never even saw the home they purchased. They had to rely on Megan to guide them. Megan is an extrovert and thrives on interacting with people. Since starting her own business, she has never been able to take time off to enjoy her children, even from when they were first born. Despite the negative circumstances, she has been able to take a step back and realize how incredibly lucky she is to be able to spend this time with her family. She said the last year has been hard from a mental health perspective. She has instituted long walks, paddle tennis, listening to more business podcasts, and picking a new hobby in Needlepoint. In the past year, all industries have had to change and evolve their way of conducting business, including the legal profession. As a Partner at Reminger Co., LPA, Carrie Starts, found that the legal profession was able to adapt very quickly. They instituted virtual meetings, depositions and court hearings. She was happy to see how “Judges have been amazingly cooperative and understanding and it has truly made a challenging time manageable for working mothers in the legal profession.”

#JLCincy | 12

Carrie and her husband both work full time and have three young boys: Jace (6), Cole (4) and Cameron (1). Like so many other working mothers, Carrie has tried to find the balance between maintaining her career and homeschooling her children all in the same day. In March 2020, when schools went remote, Jace was in Kindergarten. She adapted her schedule at the time to be able to homeschool Jace in the mornings and then work the rest of the afternoon. She was able to stick to a schedule of dinner and family time in the evening before going back to work at night. She had to put in long hours outside of the normal workday to make up for time missed in the morning. She and her husband also had to rely on each other to share duties for homeschooling. Even though 2020 was a difficult year, Carrie has really embraced the extra time she has been able to spend with her boys including exploring all the parks across Cincinnati for hiking. She will really hold onto that aspect as things start to go back to normal. In looking back at the year, Carrie is grateful that “In an otherwise adversarial profession, it felt like we were really supporting each other.” Carrie found that so many other people were in the same boat and had to put their family first. It felt like the entire legal profession took a step forward because of it.

Carrie and her family.

Megan and her family.

BOLD Leadership for Women By MEGGAN THOMPSON


f I turn the mirror on me and stop blaming other people, what do I see?” That is the question Tarita Preston asked herself when she first decided to embark on her entrepreneurial journey—one that she refers to as a spiritual experience. Tarita is a professional life and leadership coach. She is an elevating partner to her clients, assisting them in letting go of mindsets, beliefs, and patterns that no longer serve them—and helping them create anew. Tarita started her career as a human resources business partner, and although the work was impactful, she realized that a large part of her job was laying people off. Tarita liked helping other people achieve their goals through the coaching aspect of her job, but she felt she could no longer help others achieve their goals while putting hers on hold. Tarita founded her own coaching company in 2017 including services such as individual coaching, group programs, and company workshops. In December 2020, Tarita donated a BOLD Leadership

Workshop to The Junior League of Cincinnati. The workshop offered a glimpse into the three-month BOLD Leadership Program—which focuses on empowering women—that she runs twice a year. Thirty women attended the event, which began with a ‘centering’ exercise, where participants were invited to close their eyes, take a few deep breaths and slow themselves down. Tarita says this exercise offers everyone the opportunity to release the day and prepare themselves for what they are about to experience. After centering, participants were asked to check-in and describe what they were feeling at that moment in one word. Participant responses included words like “stress,” “anxiety,” “hopeful,” “excited,” “exhausted,” “overwhelmed,” “unsure,” and “busy.” “Everyone is at a different place, and that’s okay,” Tarita commented. But participants had made time for the workshop, indicating these feelings needed to be seen and heard now more than ever. Next, Tarita asked the participants to answer thirtythree introspective questions and rate themselves on a scale of one to ten (with ten being the most true). After answering the questions to themselves, participants were separated into breakout rooms of three or four. Within those rooms, each participant was asked to speak for five minutes without interruption, about their feelings toward those questions. Common themes included participants being overly apologetic, having money fears, feeling a lack of support, and coming to the realization that they have more acquaintances

Tarita Preston

than friends. Participants also reported that they tend to measure their self-worth based on feedback—and that their sense of self-worth is lower due to the lack of interpersonal connection through ‘traditional’ methods because of the pandemic. After each participant shared in the breakout groups, the full group reassembled to debrief. That’s when the work began to take shape. Participants learned that issues are never the problem—rather, it is how an individual relates to the issue, and often how an individual weaponizes that issue against themselves, that is the problem. Participants also examined the difference between asking for permission, versus asking for support. Tarita coached that “People are real, our relationships are real—their power over us is an illusion.” Tarita’s coaching style and approach were assertive and supportive. What impressed the participants most was seeing that they all faced similar challenges that deepened their sense of community and belonging. The experience reminded them how powerful they truly are. The session ended leaving participants wanting more. When asked what advice she would give to others wanting to change their life or themselves, Tarita offered, “Who you think you are cannot do it, but who you really are, can.” Visit www.taritapreston.com to learn more, or to join one of Tarita’s upcoming sessions. BOLD Leadership for Women starts on March 15, 2021. #JLCincy | 13
