7/12/17- Trip to the Art Museum and the Tiffany Show
This month for our Thursday book club, we read Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland in preparation for going to the Cincinnati Art Museum to see the Tiffany glass show. The combination of reading a historical fiction about how Tiffany created his beautiful glass and seeing it on display was a wonderful experience. Our members really enjoyed this trip and learnt a lot.

The MARIELDERS went to watch the Red’s play the Cardinals and win big!! It was a lot of fun and everyone had a good time!
6/2/17- Transportation Trip
This has been one of our most exciting trips this year. A group of MARIELDERS took the metro bus downtown and than took the street car to Findley Market to have lunch. This was a great way to explore the public transportation system in this city and to navigate getting around without a car. It was a beautiful day and everyone really enjoyed it. We hope to repeat it in the future.
5/17/17- French Rendev-vous
Spring quickly turned to summer and we took a trip to the French Rendez-vous which is a charming and lovely French store in Madisonville. Everyone had a wonderful time eating Croissants and sitting outside on a beautiful summer day.

We have started up our walking club again and encourage anyone and everyone to join us as we get exercise and fresh air!
On Friday the 17th of February, the MARIELDERS went to the Freedom Center and had a wonderful tour and time. It was a beautiful day and the Ohio river looked spectacular from the overlook at the Freedom Center. Our members learned all about Historical slavery and modern day slavery. It was interesting for many of them to learn about the Freedom center and it’s strategic place in Cincinnati!
Art Class- Every Thursday through March 2017
The Barn ( Women’s art club of Cincinnati) has been providing art classes for our members at the MARIELDERS and the members love it! David Laug comes every Thursday and teaches sketching, drawing and some water color. This is proving to be one of our most popular activities and we want to thank the Barn and David Laug for that!
Lunch with Doug- The fourth Monday of the month 2017 through April.
Doug Siles, a caterer and chef, is kind enough to come in on the fourth Monday of the month and cook a wonderful meal for our members. In January we had the full thanksgiving meal in honor of our theme for that month which was American culture. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed it a lot.

08/ 8/16 CONEY ISLAND Trip
The MARIELDERS took a trip to Coney Island to go swimming and enjoy hanging out by the pool on a beautiful summer day. The water was nice, the sky was blue and everyone had a wonderful time. This just goes to show that Coney Island is not just for the young, but for those who are young at heart. Here at the MARIELDERS we encourage all sorts of activities and events because we believe that age is an attitude.
