WinterFest is around the corner!

Dear Neighbors!

As a valued member of the Springfield Township community, I invite you to take part in Springfield Township’s WinterFest event on Saturday, December 2nd. ArtsConnect, the Township’s non-profit arts and enrichment organization, is holding a parade along Winton Road, beginning at noon. After the parade, families will enjoy a seven cottage winter village filled with free family activities, concessions, concerts, student performances, hay rides, petting zoo, ice sculpture demos and so much more!  A flier is enclosed with a schedule of activities.

Please consider participating in this community celebration by being in the parade, submitting a military veteran for the Hometown Heroes wall or by volunteering for the event.

Enclosed is a parade letter and application. You may have already received this in the mail. Not a paper person? No problem! You can also confirm your involvement in the parade with our easy online registration at  https://www.theartsconnect.us/247/WinterFest-Parade. Military Hometown Heroes (past and present) can be submitted at https://www.theartsconnect.us/252/Cards-for-the-Military. (School are encouraged to participate in the art show, parade, tree decorating and holiday performances!)

We hope to see you December 2 for this amazing celebration.

Mr. Beach passed away...

One of our very endearing naturalists and all around good neighbor, Allan Birr Beach, age 90, passed away peacefully on August 10, 2017. A long time advocate for wildlife protection and member to many organizations and clubs, including the Cincinnati Zoological Society and  National Audubon Society,  Mr. Beach lectured on many topics sharing his love for all things wild and beautiful.  He will be missed by so many people who cherished his company and stories. 

Our condolences and sympathy go to his wife, family, colleagues, and friends.
