Coffee Time: Possibilities, Pilgrimage and Poignancy: The Journey of the Later-Life Years

June 04, 2019 10am-12pm Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber Auditorium

John P. Schuster

Many psychologists and thinkers have addressed the psychology of the later-life years. The challenges and opportunities of life beyond the career-centric/family-care years are addressed differently by every one of us, and there is a host of creative ways to find meaning and live with vitality later in life. Large numbers of people in their seventies, eighties and beyond are moving ahead with energy to enjoy and contribute to life. These members of the beat and the boomer generation find their journeys laden with new joys, new burdens and, above all, opportunities that could not present themselves in the busyness of the mid-life years. John P. Schuster, author, educator and coach, will inform us how these joys and burdens comprise the pilgrimage possibilities of the later-life years.

You can learn more about John on his website: http://www.johnpschuster.com/

Coffee Time: The Siege of Cincinnati

July 09, 2019 10:00-11:30 a.m. Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber Auditorium

Join Wayne Dreier, one of our residents, for Coffee Time on Tuesday, July 9. He will help us understand one of Ohio's historic battles within the Civil War, starring "The Squirrel Hunters." Read a brief overview below:

Squirrel Hunters crossed the Ohio River from Cincinnati, Ohio to Covington via a pontoon bridge. Source: Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper, September 6, 1862.

The Civil War began in April 1861. In August 1862 Ohio was put on alert when they learned that the Confederate troops were in Kentucky and advancing north toward Cincinnati. 

Ohio Governor David Tod sent requests for able-bodied men to come to the aid of the limited forces of Cincinnati. The number of men responding was almost 10% of the total population of Cincinnati at that time. Furnishing their own weapons and clothing, they were quickly named the "Squirrel Hunters."

The Confederate troops, after a march that brought them close to Cincinnati, stayed around for a few days. Union forces relied on their obervers in Covington, Kentucky who said the Confederate troops were withdrawing. However, the Union general, thinking the withdrawal may be a ruse, removed some of the troops and sent them to other locations along the Ohio River. 

The story does not end for many years. The "Squirrel Hunters" and persons on their behalf, worked with Ohio's governors and legislators to acknowledge the contribution made by the "Squirrel Hunters."
