Covington Ladies Home is blessed by volunteers of all makes, shapes and sizes. In recent weeks, visitors have included groups, individuals, artists, musicians, students, and more. To our tried and true friends from area congregations–those who play piano and conduct sing-alongs—thank you.
After Thanksgiving the Sugar Pills came to call. Do you know the Sugar Pills? A group of talented women from the Northern Kentucky area in their adorable get-ups, toting and playing their ukuleles, and singing their hearts out.
Every Tuesday the residents enjoy company, games, laughter, and conversation with Covington Latin students. One Tuesday they were bowling. Yes, bowling.
Dr. Diane Schneider was driving through the neighborhood, reminiscing about her old school, LaSalette Academy, when she came upon CLH. Impressed by our Victorian home, she immediately signed up to volunteer. Our harpist at last Sunday’s Holiday Open House was Diane.
Thank you to all our volunteers for your talents, your time, and your love. Merry Christmas!
For 131 years, Covington Ladies Home has provided a place where every lady matters, regardless of her financial means, a place where each feels valued, a place hundreds of elderly women have called home.
On Saturday evening November 18th a capacity crowd celebrated Covington Ladies Home and the First Annual Ellen Battelle Dietrick Award winner, Michelle Riegler Krumpelman. A successful businesswoman and passionate volunteer, Michelle is a Boone County alum who lives with her husband Andy Krumpelman in Ft. Mitchell.
The “Ellen Award” honors a young woman of our area who lifts up the community with her investment of time, ideas, and passion for others, just as CLH founder Ellen Dietrick made an impact during her time in Covington in the late 19th century.
Michelle spoke of women’s strengths, women’s sacrifices, and women’s needs. She recognized CLH as gem in our midst and challenged guests to get involved with Covington Ladies Home residents.
Gala guests filled the Grand Ballroom, and the Mezzanine was lively with silent auction bidders, with CLH supporters, with friends old and new. Lucky live auction winners took home weekends in Palm Beach and the Biltmore estate, and finally, a trip to Paris!
All gala proceeds help provide personal care for the residents of CLH. For 131 years, Covington Ladies Home has provided a place where every lady matters, regardless of her financial means, a place where each feels valued, a place hundreds of elderly women have called home.
After serving Covington Ladies Home for seven years, Janet Borton retired this past August. During her tenure she helped the Ladies Home consolidate costs, bolster fund raising, and engage devoted staff members — all to provide the best in personal care to the Ladies who live here. As she often said, “Always remember we work in someone’s Home.” Janet looks forward to traveling with her husband, and increasing her visits to out-of-town children and grandchildren
Covington Ladies Home’s Board of Directors hired Carrie VanDerzee to serve as our new Director. Carrie worked in the nonprofit arena while her children were younger and subsequently engaged at a deeper level once they were grown. She most recently served as Development Director at One Way Farm in Fairfield, OH. Carrie joins CLH at a critical time in Ladies Home history. Through the Building Our Future capital campaign, we are poised to deliver 21st century care to the women who turn to us now and long into the future.
We wish Janet well in her retirement, and we heartily welcome Carrie to our Home.
