To me, the YWCA is more than just a charitable organization dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. While that is an amazing mission, the YWCA is an organization that I hold close to my heart because of two women, who I have known nearly my whole life...

2016 Ohio Rose Kathleen Rose O'Donnell in 4th of July Parade

2016 Ohio Rose Kathleen Rose O’Donnell has enjoyed many events this summer between her day-to-day life in Cincinnati and Rose events around Ohio. On Monday, she not only attended the 4th of July Parade, but also brought her hoop to spread smiles on the faces of the crowd. Kathleen waved, hooped and smiled her way down Hilliard Blvd in celebration of America’s Independence Day. Last month, she attended the Mayo Society of Greater Cleveland’s Annual Tea with her father, Bill O’Donnell, where she met Paul Dolan, Mayo Person of the Year and part-owner/CEO of Cleveland Indians baseball. It was also a reunion of past Roses and participants. 2015 Ohio Rose Kaytee Szente and 2012 Ohio Rose Ashley Speaker attended, along with Maureen Rose Ginley, a 2-year Ohio Rose Participant. Annie Profeta, another Ohio Rose Participant, danced with Murphy’s Irish Arts Center. Denise McConville, executive director of the Ohio Rose Center was also at the event. Later this month Kathleen plans to attend the Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival (July 22-24th). Stop by and say hello before she heads to Tralee in August!

We met our 2016 Ohio Rose applicants on Saturday at Westlake City Hall! We had an orientation meeting for the Rose selection process and then went on a limo bus tour around greater Cleveland! The bus stopped at the Burke Lakefront Airport, where they host the Women’s International Air and Space Museum. The group had a fun time exploring the history and science there! Then, we were off to visit PJ McIntyre’s Irish Pub and Casey’s Irish Imports of Rocky River for a little shopping. The tour concluded with dinner at the Hooley House in Westlake, OH. Memories were made. Laughs were had.
