- Hispanic Volunteer Day, Going Further Together in the Community - The Hispanic Volunteer Day on 10/09 was a great success! Members from across the bank met at Robert’s Academy in Price Hill to work in a predominantly Hispanic and Latino community. We spent time clearing honeysuckle and undergrowth from a path that connects Rapid Run Park with Route 264. Though the work was hot and dirty, the crew laughed the whole time! It was LCNB’s first time attending this event, and we made quite the impact. Of the three bank groups present, LCNB had the most participants with eleven. The Director of Special Projects for the Hispanic Chamber, Francisco Okhuysen stated, “The LCNB Group had quite a presence and made a huge impact to the park project that they worked on. We look forward to having your group with us every year.”
Welcome to Autumn
Ever since I was a child, Fall has been my favorite season. The beginning of school, cool crisp weather, football games and pumpkin spice. In our house, pumpkin spice was an important part of the season. Mom and Grandma were great bakers, and I grew up with made-from-scratch cookies, candy, and pumpkin pies. The memories of those tasty treats make my mouth water even today.
