June 2016

On June 29, 1977, Jennings’ governance transitioned from an Advisory Board of Catholic Charities to a Board of Directors with full fiduciary responsibilities. Throughout these 39 years, Jennings has been blessed with dynamic and generous board members and chairpersons, who have shared their talents and expertise for the benefit of all. We remember them today and always in our grateful prayer!

It was a pleasure to celebrate the creativity of adults 55+ throughout Northeast Ohio, with the juried art and writing show on June 8 and 9, 2016.

The creative talents on display were contributed by Northeast Ohio adults served by LeadingAge Ohio organizations. All Residents of LeadingAge Ohio member facilities are invited to participate! There are many categories in which to be creative, such as photography, traditional art, poetry, prose, computer art, wearable art and 3-D art. Nothing beats seeing one’s own creation on display and hearing viewer compliments and praise.

Winning entries will travel to Columbus specifically to be judged in the State Show held during the LeadingAge Ohio Annual Conference.

The LeadingAge Ohio Resident Forum began in 1995 to share life-style enrichment opportunities with residents and clients of member providers. The Art and Writing Program was founded as an offshoot of the Forum and has organized the popular Regional Art and Writing Shows annually since the early 1990s.
