Community Invited to Honor Extraordinary Achievement for Two-Headed Calf Awards
BCM is inviting nominations for the museum's tenth annual Two-Headed Calf Community Service Awards. The awards are meant to celebrate the nominees' extraordinary achievement for service to the community, to history or to learning. 
 
For service to the community: Generosity and vision
This award is a tribute to a citizen who has embraced community service not as a singular activity but with a deep commitment to doubling his or her contribution by combining the gift of service with a vision for how the quality of life in our community can be and is affirmatively improved by supporting the arts, education, culture and history that enrich each of us. The honoree's service might take the form of a contribution of his or her time, talent or treasure - or better yet, the sum of all of those. By the example of his or her stewardship and generosity, the honoree is a role model, especially for young people.
 
For service to history: Scholarship and public service
This award honors a resident of our community who has contributed to the preservation and understanding of our regional or state history, and whose scholarship, in the tradition of Herodotus, captures the past not solely as a matter of scholarship but equally as a matter of public good.
 
For service to learning: Academic excellence and innovation
This award is open to an individual (a student, a parent, a teacher, a principal, an administrator or a volunteer), a school or even a school district. An auxiliary group affiliated with education can be nominated (for example, a scout troop, single teacher, a teacher and his or her class, or whole school.) The award is meant to celebrate extraordinary teaching and learning, especially in disciplines dear to Behringer-Crawford, such as history or archaeology. The honoree or honorees who receive this award do not only demonstrate academic excellence, though we applaud that; the academic excellence is side by side with an innovative, energetic approach to teaching and learning. 

Click on the button below for an application. Applications are due by November 22, 2019 and can be submitted by mail, in person or by email.

The awards will be presented at a banquet this spring; date to be announced.

Bidding on Edd Roush Baseball Cards
Ends Nov. 1, 4 p.m.
After the Black Sox scandal, great center fielder and Hall-of-Famer, Edd Roush claimed that the Cincinnati Reds would have won the World Series even if the disgraced White Sox had played the series legitimately. He said that after the first two games the White Sox played to win because the gamblers had not paid them off properly. Whatever controversy still remains, one thing is for sure, Roush's hard-nosed style led him to be one of the greatest players in the Reds' history.

There are less than two weeks left to bid on BCM's authenticated and certified Edd J. Roush baseball memorabilia. The baseball cards are from the 1961 Fleer “Baseball Greats” series, the 1979 Upper Deck Company “Diamond Greats” series and the 2002 Upper Deck Company “Legendary Cut” series.

Bid today and own a piece of baseball history!

Stop at BCM on a Spooky Fundraising Tour
October 24 and 25, 5:30-10 p.m.
Inspired by the recent book,  Secret Cincinnati , the Spooky Secrets Tour was created by the book’s author, Kathy Witt, and Jill Morenz, who heads the NKY Public Arts Network.  John Witt, photographer for the book, will lead the tour, giving attendees an up-close look at some of its creepier “secrets,” including a few new ones that weren’t in the original edition. The tour begins at Second Sight Spirits in Ludlow, KY and continues to BCM for a private showing of weird and mysterious artifacts from our permanent collection. Other stops include:

  • Hail Dark Aesthetics – Enjoy shopping time for the darkest and creepiest merch this side of ghastly.
  • Falcon Theatre – Experience a tarot card reading from Tuscarora Moon about the history of the building and munch on fresh-baked Evil Eye cookies. On Thursday, the tarot reading will be at Tuscarora Moon in Newport.
  • Riverside Drive Statue Tour – Listen as Jill Morenz from the NKY Public Arts Network spins ghost stories about Capt. Mary Greene and some historic houses in the neighborhood.
  • Roebling Point Books – Sip a delicious coffee drink (as a new secret is revealed). Pick up your free copy of the book, Secret Cincinnati, get it autographed by author Kathy Witt and receive a check-as-you-go bookmark to record your adventures.


Tickets are $100 and are limited to 20 each night. Proceeds from the tour will go to Welcome House of Northern Kentucky.
