Cincinnati’'s Yale alumni include politicians, judges, attorneys, CEOs college presidents, a US president and a WWI Navy flying ace.

Both Ms. Wagner and Mr. Vogel are past presidents of the Cincinnati Yale Club.

  Greater Cincinnati has the good fortune to not only have a vibrant and growing arts, culture and entertainment scene, our region is also an amazing place to discover life in the great outdoors. And to help with that discovery, next Saturday and Sunday the 11th annual Great Outdoor Weekend takes place: 120 free outdoor events spanning the eight counties in and around Greater Cincinnati. Joining us for a preview of the many and varied events you can enjoy this weekend are Kimberly Whitton, communication coordinator for Great Parks!
