The Cincinnati LBFE chapter is bound together by the dedicated volunteers who assist  in running the volunteer program, the monthly programs, the  social programs and the On-Call/Emergency Services program.  A good example is the “Third Thursday” program that is run by 10 dedicated volunteers who provide the transportation, homemade meals, socialization and activities for 17 elders each month.  Started in 2004 this program is for LBFE’s elderly friends who transitioned from living in their own home/apartment to a skilled care facility and benefit from having a belonging group outside of the facility.  This group meets monthly to enjoy one another’s company, enjoy good food and delight in many different activities – a trip to a local park for a cookout and boat ride, playing Scattergories, enjoying local musical groups.
