    A long-time resident of West Chester/Liberty, Patti has been instrumental in developing the philanthropic arm of the community. Patti led the effort to open the original Club in 2014, and with the support of Lakota Schools and many generous people who saw the need for a larger facility, Patti was able to raise the funds and open the doors to the current Club facility on January 4, 2018. She loves being at the Club and says just being with the kids makes it all worthwhile. “Our kids are amazing!”

    A family man and Cincy fan, John has built positive relationships with youth as both a teacher and a coach over the course of the last thirty-five years.

    With a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Health Education, even that couldn’t keep Miss Cici from her true passion - children! Her interest for helping children succeed started quite some time ago.

Miss Cici truly enjoys being the Club Manager and looking after all of our members!
