Just so you know, both John and Helen Hunter are alive and well and living happily in View Place even if the directory omitted John from the street listing.

Bob and Sylvia Mersfelder have moved away but I did see signs of family life  in their gorgeous mid-century modern home.

Finneytown School News...

Have you been to the school's webpage?  Do you know that Dr. Alan Robertson is retiring as Superintendent?  This is the guy that who kept it all together for the school community undergoing change in just the past 3 years with new principals, superintendents, teachers, leaky roofs, and new school tests.  This is the guy that made our  excellent school rating possible with his leadership, passion, and dedication to the district.

We are sorry to see him go.

Try following this link to look at other announcements about the school.


The new  directories are ready to be handed out to the neighborhood. If you can help distribute the directories or if somehow we missed you, please contact

Dear Finneytown  Parents,  Family,  and Community Members,

We are writing for your support of our AFTER PROM White Elephant Sale on January 19th, 2013, from 6 pm until 9pm at the Xenos Community Center on Northbend Rd.   The White Elephant sale is a fun way to raise money for After Prom.  Your family can enjoy a night out of auction fun, with appetizers and dessert, beverages and good cheer.

Our committee is dedicated to making this experience enjoyable by highlighting and promoting area businesses. We would be thrilled to highlight your business through a donation of a product or service as a prize to be auctioned off. You will receive exposure in newsletters and on our Face book page for the event.   Your business participation will make a difference in our efforts to make this a success.  

Families cleaning out the closet or basement to make way for the new holiday items can donate too. Some of last year’s items that went up for auction included baked goods, gently used furniture; old framed art, and the services of a local painter and electrician!  We can take just about anything.  Volunteers will be contacted to bring a dish to the event for our dine and bid.

Drop off days are: October 24, November 14, and December 19 from 4pm until 7pm at the Secondary Campus under the awning in the front of the school, just drive up! We will accept items and services at other times as well; this is just in an effort to maximize our chances of getting some really great items and make money for our students to continue to have a safe, fun place to go After Prom!!

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Thank you,

After Prom Committee members
