Seniors offer lifetime of experience to community Three hundred and forty Retired Senior Volunteer Program volunteers served over 56,441 hours last year saving the community $983,872 through volunteer service hours. Seniors 55 and over are using a lifetime of experience to meet community needs. Volunteers can be found in non-profit organizations, health care facilities, and schools. They provide services in many areas: tutoring in schools, educational programs, several service areas in Dearborn County Hospital, tax preparation for low income, library help in schools and local public libraries, projects for nursing homes and meal sites. They also provide clerical assistants for non-profit organizations preparing mailings, data entry, filing and phone calls. They provide musical entertainment in nursing homes, senior housing facilities and senior centers creating a social event for seniors and an evening of musical enjoyment. Volunteers also supported seniors through friendly visiting and transportation. Volunteers serving in educational programs, such as the Pen Pal program
(writing to third and fourth graders). The Heart To Heart and the Read Across America volunteers read to over 2,350 students last year. Fun Learning program volunteers created over 1,340 Fun Learning string games, bookmarks, puzzles, and name mats. They collated over 78,890 workbook pages for teachers and students. These are learning games for preschool and elementary students in schools in the Dearborn and Ohio county areas.

Dearborn County Citizens Against Substance Abuse is fueled by the work of dedicated volunteers and supporting partners. An excellent example is the City of Lawrenceburg matching our grant funds for this year. Instead of granting $60,000 to agencies who work to move our healthy drug free efforts throughout the community, we had $120,000. This allowed for more funding to some agencies and new funding developing new program ideas. From art lessons to juveniles in detention and a faith-based anti-bullying program to an agency who is leading the way for a major change in how local coordinating councils operate in the southeastern Indiana area. We thank and honor every partner and volunteer for their work but we would like to highlight the youth who are involved with us. The Dearborn County Youth Ambassadors are a group of high school youth who work within their own school district as well as the community to enforce positive life choices including living drug and alcohol free. This April will be our 6th Youth Summit and the Ambassadors will prepare and present the workshops to 75 seventh grade students from our three school districts. Before doing that the Ambassadors participate in a leadership workshop with Katrina Wyche of the ASAP Center in Cincinnati. Following the Summit, they begin recruiting new members to

The Ambassadors serve as role models to others and they are adamant about being the most positive ones in the community. The Ambassadors work not only with CASA but also sponsors within their schools and South Dearborn’s Sally Bender has been a driving force in making the group what it is today. She helped formed this organization. East Central’s Brenda Osman has also been very instrumental in the success of the group and LHS Sandy Britton was a major force but this year turned the reins over to Shawn Lightner who is bringing his energy to the effort. In the past four years, the Coalition for a Drug Free Greater Cincinnati have selected two of our former Ambassadors “Student Volunteer of the Year” and two have been honorable mention. Past and present Dearborn County Youth Ambassadors rock the county.
The current Ambassadors are:
Christina Duechle, Victoria Voelkel, Kelley Gessner and Shelby Rose from LHS; Kelly Weigel, Lauren Deddens, Sarah Hendrix, Laura, Kuebel and Elizabeth Hamersley from ECHS; and Brittany Getz, Abby Rinck, Adam Driehaus, Blake Driehaus and Jordan Ingle from SDHS.

Dearborn County Hospital’s information desk in the main lobby is always a busy location. DCH Auxiliary President Sylvia Plashko, left, is joined by Friday afternoon volunteers Jean Fulton, Marita Cizek and Mary McCann.
DCH auxilians find their work to be both enjoyable and rewarding The Dearborn County Hospital Auxiliary’s latest special project has been profitable and also enjoyable for their members and the local community. This past December, Dillard’s Department Store created a mini-store in the conference facilities of the hospital. The mini-store was stocked with a wide array of merchandise available for purchase by hospital personnel as well as the general public.
Following each ministore, 10 percent of the sales are provided by Dillard’s to the Auxiliary. This was the third Dillard’s mini-store hosted by the DCH Auxiliary. The first two mini-stores in December of 2011 and May of 2012 netted $6,481 for the organization. “We are very grateful for the support shown to the mini-store by both our hospital family and the community. The DCH location has one of the highest com-
munity turnouts for ministores in this area,” stated Sylvia Plashko, DCH Auxiliary President. Donations from the Auxiliary, over the years, have assisted the hospital in making numerous equipment purchases and in the development of new services and facilities. Auxiliary funds are derived primarily from sales in the DCH Auxiliary Gift Shop and Snack Bar, donations and special projects
such as the Dillard’s sales. The volunteer organization has been able to donate more than $1.92 million to DCH since 1958 when the Auxiliary was founded. Volunteer service is also a very important aspect of the organization. Auxiliary members had volunteered approximately 20,000 hours during the fiscal year 2012. On average, its 100 active Auxilians volunteer 200 hours each year. In addition to President
Volunteers needed at Hillforest Hillforest Victorian House Museum, 213 Fifth Street, Aurora, was built for industrialist and financier Thomas Gaff and his family who resided there from 1855 and 1891. Hillforest is celebrating its 57th year serving as a historic house museum. The museum was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1992 and serves as a major tourist attraction and an important tri-state cultural and educational resource. Period furnishings, some original to the house, reflect the active lifestyle of the former residents of the home during the period following the Industrial Revolution. A Century of Brides Exhibit will begin in April featuring bridal gowns dating 1850 to 1950s displayed throughout the museum. The Hillforest volunteer docents (tour guides) are the heart and soul of Hillforest as they are the ones who interpret the house and the history of the family to the thousands of tourists and schoolchildren who visit each year.

Preventing Child Abuse is a collective responsibility By Suzzi Romines As event coordinator of Prevent Child Abuse of Dearborn and Ohio Counties, I believe it is important to highlight recent findings about child development that should be noted by everyone. We now know that early adversity has life-long effects on learning, health and behavior. Science tells us that “toxic stress” – like exposure to family violence – literally damages the brain’s architecture. We don’t have to worry about tolerable stress (falling off your bike, or getting a shot at the doctor’s office). But toxic stress lasts longer, is more severe, and leads to lifelong problems in learning, health and behavior. Protecting kids is not solely the job of those we call on after a child has been hurt. There is much we can do to prevent abuse and neglect in the first place. It is a collective responsibility. Since 1996, Prevent Child Abuse has worked to educate Dearborn and Ohio County communities about prevention. In 2012, 1,005 reports of abuse or neglect were noted for our two counties. National statistics suggest that this number should be three times as much as children are too afraid to tell, do not know that it’s wrong, and friends and family are unsure of what to do, where to turn for help, or how to get involved. Get involved. Make the call. Make a difference. Become an advocate for children. I invite all citizens, including parents, business leaders, church leaders, and school representatives to join us at our next monthly meeting Wednesday, March 6, at noon at the SIEOC Building in Aurora to learn how each of us can make a difference. Volunteering takes so little time for our organization but there are great rewards for volunteers and the children and families we serve. For more information about the organization, call Suzzi Romines at 1-513-260-5252. To report abuse anonymously, call 1-800-8005556 or call 911 in an emergency. “Friend” us on Facebook for information about our activities and signature events such as “Bowling with Dads,” “Games with Grandparents,” and a free movie at Greendale Cinema for “Movies with Moms” (scheduled for February). Together, we can do anything.

Volunteerism lives and thrives through mentors Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati serving Dearborn, Ohio and Ripley Counties in Indiana and Harrison, Ohio, thrives due to the many dedicated Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Advisory Board Members, local partners and financial supporters. In 2012, 1,217 youth in the Tri-State had mentors and friends to help them achieve education success; avoid risky behaviors and have higher expectations, greater confidence and better relationships. Of these over 150 were in our local communities. Volunteers come from all walks of life. In our site programs in Lawrenceburg and Harrison schools youth as young as 16 and adults as old as 80 became Bigs and gave of themselves weekly to be a positive influence in the life of a child. Attorneys from the Dearborn and Ohio County Bar Association joined others as Mentors this school year. College students, retired adults, business owners, educators, singe and married people all have stepped up to make a difference in the life of a child. In our community matches, Bigs from age 18 to late 70s dedicated time most weeks spending an hour or two having fun, building self-confidence and skills, dreaming and planning together. Big Sister, Christy Hawkins, commented to friends on Facebook “Going to have a great weekend I can already feel it! I love having the weekend off and being able to consume with my Little Anna! I don’t know who is teaching who more! I’m very blessed to have chosen to become a part of the BBBS program two years ago!” During 2012, advisory board members Sara Chipman, Paula Goodpaster, Sharon Gieringer, Shawn Lightner, Suzanne Orndorf, Nancy Ray and Debbie Thomason were there to help recruit Mentors/Bigs and raise needed funds to support the program. We are pleased to have Quinn Webb join the group in 2013. We are seeking added members, especially from Harrison, Ripley County and Ohio County. Our Fall Fun Day match activity has for over 12 years thrilled the Bigs and Littles thanks to Bill Reynolds and Hickory Lake staff and the support of the City of Lawrenceburg and Wayne Caudill. Many local groups and individuals share themselves that day to encourage and support. Now we are seeing some of the older Littles step in to volunteer to make the day extra special for those coming for the first time. Service to Others, one of the Developmental Assets important for youth to thrive, is alive and well.

A very sincere thank you to all P.A.W.S. volunteers The P.A.W.S. Humane Center, located in Lawrenceburg at 200 Charles A. Liddle Drive (off of Industrial Drive), operates with the indispensable help of wonderful, caring volunteers. No matter how small the gesture or how large the task, these volunteers make a profound difference in the lives of our county’s homeless animals. Homeless dogs and cats of our county rest comfortably in this modern, safe haven as they await adoption into loving homes.
All of this would not be possible were it not for hundreds of hands-on volunteers and thousands of donors who care about what happens to stray, unwanted and abandoned animals. Without volunteers, P.A.W.S. simply would not exist. P.A.W.S. is an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats in our county. Volunteer opportunities at the new Center are many and varied, including working with the animals, teach-

Volunteers help kids stay warm Register Publications is a proud Dearborn County sponsor of Warm The Children, an organization created to help children in need of warm winter clothing. Every fall and winter donations are accepted and used to spend $80 on each child accepted and served by the program. Register Publications has teamed up with SIEOC to assist in the referral process. Register Publications works to inform the community of needed donations and volunteers and reaches out to those who feel they are in need. Families are able to call SIEOC to set up an interview and fill out necessary paperwork to be reviewed and approved by the Warm The Children Coordinator at Register Publications. Once the referrals are received, approved families are matched up with a volunteer shopper to meet them at Wal-
Mart, Aurora. The $80 each child is able to spend must be used to purchase winter clothing items such as coats, hats, boots, pants, underwear, socks and shirts. The time spent to interview families, match them to volunteer shoppers, provide funding for the program and organize the paperwork could not be done without volunteers and donations. Volunteers begin with from Register Publications and SIEOC employees who organize the logistics of the program. Members of our community send in monetary donations to support funding necessary to provide $80 to each child. Volunteer shoppers meet over 250 children at Wal-Mart. In 2012, Warm The Children helped 258 children in Dearborn County. That is almost 100 more children than 2011. We also received over $18,000
in donations and a $5,000 grant from The Dearborn Community Foundation. Warm The Children was also able to help children in need of winter clothing who are currently living at the Y.E.S. Home as well as help those who may be in their care in the future. Thank you to all who helped make Warm The Children a great success. Please help us in recognizing the following volunteer shoppers for their help: Tom O’Toole, Rachel Thies, Sharon Huddleston, Debbie Horn, Jacqui Brookbank, Kim Spanagel, Linda Carver, Heather Powell, Leslie Sutherlin, Beth Legge, Adam Legge, Kim Gainor, D.L.
