Singing ministry for kids of all ages

Good Things Happening

Allen Howard

The Celebration Shop, a singing ministry geared to children, will be in Cincinnati on Wednesday. The ministry is based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Celebration Shop members Jim Newton and Paul Hill will perform at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center during the day, and at 7 p.m. at the Hyde Park Methodist Church, 1345 Grace Ave.

Newton said his experience singing at the Columbus Children's Hospital led to the formation of Celebration Shop. He solicited the help of friend, writer and producer Paul Hill, and also friend Noel Paul Stookey from Peter, Paul and Mary.

Charles and Barbara Boersig, members of the church, are publicity co-chairs for the event.

"The evening program in the sanctuary will be for children of all ages," Charles Boersig said. "Mostly they perform at hospitals; but by bringing it to the church, it opens the ministry up for everybody."

Economics leader picked

Emily Gay, a junior at Seton High School, Price Hill, is one of 30 students around the country to be selected to participate in the weeklong Foundation for Teaching Economics Leaders program June 20-27 at the College of Wooster, Ohio.

Emily was selected because of her demonstrated leadership potential.

The course combines leadership training and economics.

The program is sponsored by the Foundation for Teaching Economics, a nonprofit organization based in Davis, Calif.

Charity Golf Classic

The Rotary International 2004 Polio Plus Campaign, a global polio eradication program, will get a special boost from the Lebanon Rotary Club on June 28.

The club will host the first Rotary International Charity Golf Classic at the Tournament Players Club River's Bend Country Club. Registration is from 11 a.m. to noon the day of the tournament.

A shotgun start is set for 1 p.m.

For more information, call Harry Wise, 774-7275.

Wise said the tournament will include 18 holes with carts, lunch, after-golf reception and major prizes, including the chance to win a two-year auto lease for a hole-in-one on each of the par-3 holes.

There will also be a $1 million shoot-out for a hole-in-one for closest-to-the-pin winners on designated holes.

"We still need more foursomes to sign up,'' Wise said. "We are hoping to have at least 100 or 120 golfers."

He said the entry fee is $300 per golfer.

OSU dean's list

Melissa VonderBrink, a senior in the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, has been named to the winter quarter dean's list at Ohio State University.

The McAuley High School graduate is the daughter of Karen and Tim VonderBrink of Winton Place.

David Mou of Westwood is one of 100 high school seniors nationally to be selected as Horatio Alger National Scholars by the Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans. He was invited to attend their 2004 Scholars Conference in Washington, D.C., in April.

The recent Seven Hills Upper School graduate will receive a $10,000 college scholarship disbursed throughout his college career.
