Green Up Kennedy Heights Park

Saturday, May 21
9:00am - 11:00am

Help prepare Kennedy Heights for a busy summer! Help plant new plants and flowers and clean up around the park.

Every Wednesday during the summer, families from Pleasant Ridge, Kennedy Heights, and Amberly Village come to play in Kennedy Heights Park. These evenings are great community building events, where kids and parents can connect and play. And this summer, the festivities will be even more exciting and ambitious.

On Saturday, May 21, we want to ready the park by planting new flowers and plants. Join other families and volunteers as we get dirty and have fun in our neighborhood park.

Kennedy Heights needs YOU to compete for the glory of our neighborhood! This summer Kennedy Heights will be fielding a team in the first annual Cincinnati Neighborhood Games!

KH will be holding our Qualifying Games with Pleasant Ridge on Saturday 7 May. Below are all the events, times, and locations. Win one of these qualifying events and you will represent Kennedy Heights in the main events on July 9–16!

For more information on the games visit If you have any questions or would like to help volunteer, please contact Danielle Linn at

Cincinnati Go - Adopt A Pot
Crossroads Church's GO Cincinnati team of five led by Kam Tarkington gave time, talent and flowers to beautify nine corners in our neighborhood. Residents agreed to 'adopt a pot' and tend the spruce and flowers in bourbon barrels purchased by the KH Community Council. These points of beauty will flourish with tender loving care and build pride in our neighborhood.

Thanks, one and all!

The Caring Place!
Volunteers are the Heart of The Caring Place

If the measure of a society is how it cares for those most in need, The Caring Place is one way Kennedy Heights achieves a high standard. And at the heart of our community ministry are the dedicated volunteers who find joy in their service.

Jo Ann Ruff, a member of Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church, has volunteered there for over 25 years. She is the intake person who greets guests and assesses their needs. Jo Ann began by volunteering as a tribute to her friend who died and has stayed for all these years. “It’s a good way to get to know people and form personal friendships. People share their health and family problems. I find joy in listening and in the thank yous from the clients.” Stop in and visit 9–2 on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Jo Ann will be happy to see you.

Because supplies are limited, clients can only come once a month. Since some items can’t be purchased with food stamps, there is an ongoing need for personal care items (soap, shampoo & conditioner, deodorant, lotion, toothpaste, toilet paper), household cleaning products (dish liquid, laundry detergent, multipurpose cleaner, bleach) and grocery bags. Can you find donors or businesses that will contribute these items to supplement your donation?

For all who know and love Ceal Bellman, her surgery was successful and she is moving much more easily. She thanks everyone for their prayers.
