On September 3rd, a very distinctive auxiliary sign was posted honoring the Elder graduates who served in the military and became casualties from the Vietnam War; either through wounds suffered in the theater of war or from exposure to Agent Orange and like herbicides.  These men are also casualties of the Vietnam War and this memorial will forever honor their service and sacrifice.  The auxiliary sign identifying these graduates is displayed as “Elder’s Twelfth Man” – graduates who remain nameless and timeless, but not forgotten.  Click the heading above to read the full story.

The Cincinnati Parks Foundation is honoring Tom Otten as one of the 2015 Gentleman of Style & Substance Honorees.

The weather was near perfect, the food was perfect (for a picnic), purple was the color of the evening and all of the faces had smiles—from the youngest to the oldest.  It was the Elder Family Picnic at Stricker’s Grove!  Hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream cones while serenaded by the Elder-Seton Steel Drum Band & Glee Club.  Then off to the rides, talking with old friends and meeting new ones.  Another unforgettable evening for the Elder Family.  Thanks to the Elder Alumni Association Board for hosting the event and working the grills.  Altiora!
