Chamber Members-
This year marks the third consecutive year of hosting the Colerain Chamber's Hometown Hero Celebration despite COVID/pandemic circumstances; last year we hosted over 200 people at the Willow Event Center. This year we will honor local Colerain High School graduates Judge Ralph "Ted" Winkler and urban muralist/artist Josh Stout along with three veterans in our community including Robert Doolan who was in a Stalag/POW encampment that was represented in the movie, The Great Escape; Robert is 105 years old too!!!

This year's Hometown Hero event will again have food trucks, music, various fundraising games like the Wheelbarrow of Cheer and a silent auction of gift baskets and donated items. Various non-profit organizations will be on hand to tell their respective stories and did I fail to mention that we'll have plenty of food and beverages? 

Our Team Up to Green Up initiative continues to be just one story of many that gives us a chance to make our community a better place to live, work, and play. You will hear others if you listen closely to our Raving Fans; one of those stories could be you broadcasting your mission and sharing your experiences across the Colerain Chamber of Commerce.

While April showers bring May flowers. May flowers and warmer weather means that the chamber is heating up and that June is just around the corner.

May you each have a terrific summer ahead!

Dave Moravec

Judge Ted Winkler won re-election in 2020 for a 7-year term, has served the bench since 1999 and presided over 100,000 cases in his 23-year career. He said that he loves his current Judgeship because he gets to preside over all of the adoption cases in Hamilton County. He quips, “I have many people that have adopted me over the last 60 years”…that is the root of my success.

Remarkably, Judge Winkler returned $100,000 to the Hamilton County budget for funds not needed by his court.

After attending Monfort Hts Elementary and White Oak Middle, Ted graduated from Colerain HS in the class of 1979. He then graduated from the University of Cincinnati with his bachelor’s degree then his Juris Doctorate from Chase Law School at Northern Kentucky University in 1987. 
Ted loved school and sports where teachers and coaches were great mentors. Being active in Colerain High School sports taught him the importance of never giving up and working as a team. Ted’s work-ethic started early and as he moved into high school and college he held down a job at the Colerain IGA. Ted is married to Teresa Winkler and they have three daughters and eight grandchildren. His strong faith in God is important as is his active role in his local church. 

Joshua Stout is a muralist from Cincinnati, OH who currently lives in Ludlow, KY with his wife Katie and daughter Elodie. Josh grew up in Colerain Township and lived there from the time he was in the 1st grade all the way until he graduated from the University of Cincinnati.
Joshua's main goals with his art are to beautify neighborhoods and add public art to areas that may otherwise not have a lot of exposure to the arts (specifically murals). He aims to inspire residents of the areas he paints in to take a greater interest in the arts. Joshua will be painting an outdoor mural in Colerain Township this summer.

What did professional baseball look like in Cincinnati in 1869? Brothers George and Harry Wright ruled the ball field, leading the 1869 Red Stockings to an undefeated season that spanned the United States. Players wore no gloves, and the uniforms and rules of the game were a bit different from what you'll see at Great American Ball Park today.

The Reds Hall of Fame and Museum's 1869 Red Stockings vintage baseball team endeavors to bring this history to life through various events and activities that further its mission, expose that history and vintage baseball to new audiences, and bring attention to the Reds Hall of Fame, while engaging Reds fans everywhere.
