It's First Friday - Lets Celebrate Local Heroes!
Oftentimes, the first "heroes" that come to mind are police officers, fire fighters, and those who serve our country in the armed forces--all of whom certainly deserve the "Hero" label. However, heroes come in many forms. You'll find them throughout your community -- those very special people who make a genuine difference in the lives of others. Bellevue celebrates allHeroes tonight!
Nominations can also be made in person at participating In Vue businesses. Online and in-person nominations must be made by Saturday, April 9 by 4 pm. The Winning Hero will be announced on "Super Heroes Day", April 16th, and will receive a key to the city!
Witt's End Candy is celebrating firefighters as our local hero and will be serving a beverage called the Firehouse Special and holding a trivia contest about firemen/firehouses. Completed contest sheets will be entered into a drawing for a "My Mouth's on Fire" candy basket filled with treats like Hot Tamales, Atomic Fire Balls, Red Hots, Cinnamon Balls, etc.
We hope you'll participate in our raffle of a prom dress with proceeds going to our hero for the evening - Kenzie's Closet. Kenzie's Closet provides prom dresses for young women with financial needs; helping carry on the organization's namesake, Kenzie Comisar's, belief: "Every girl should feel like a princess on her prom night."
Our hero sells amazing products that give back in huge ways. The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ is dōTERRA International's non-profit organization committed to improving lives through partnering with organizations that offer hope to millions around the world. Healing Hands seeks to bring healing and hope to the world, for lives free of disease and poverty, and to ultimately empower impoverished communities with the tools needed to become self-reliant. dōTERRA International provides for all overhead and administrative costs of the Foundation, ensuring that 100 percent of all donations go directly to those receiving aid.
The DAV are heroes by providing a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families, helping more than 1 million veterans in positive, life-changing ways each year. In 2015, DAV helped attain more than $4 billion in new and retroactive benefits to care for themselves and for veterans, their families and survivors. DAV is also a leader in connecting veterans with meaningful employment, hosting job fairs and providing resources to ensure they have the opportunity to participate in the American Dream their sacrifices have made possible.
Tonight we honor our hero that honors heroes in our region - Honor Flight Tri-State. Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for all their sacrifices. They transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans - World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.

Bethany Rose Pottery Featured at Frame and Hang Studio Gallery
The opening gallery reception featuring the work of Bethany Kramer, ceramic artist, teacher, and owner of Bethany Rose Pottery LLC is on Friday, April 1 from 5 to 9 pm at Frame and Hang Studio Gallery located at 401 Fairfield Avenue.
Bethany received her BFA from Northern Kentucky University in 2007, concentrating in ceramics. Ever since Bethany took her first pottery class at NKU, she has worked hard to carve out her ceramic path. She has displayed her work in several local gallery shows, and has exhibited her work in even more local, well respected art fairs like the Hyde Park Art Show and The Clay Alliance Spring Pottery Fair in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Art in the Park in Bellevue, Kentucky where she was awarded 1st Place for Fine Craft in 2015. Also in the summer of 2015, Bethany was a featured artist in the international magazine, Where Women Create, published by Stampington and Company. Recently, Bethany has collaborated with local chefs, creative designers, photographers, and other artists to expand on her work. Some of this work can be experienced at several locations in Cincinnati, Ohio, including the well acclaimed Salazar's in Over the Rhine, Mita's (also created by chef/owner Jose Salazar) and Nada. Not only can you eat off one of her taco plates at the newly opened Nada in Indianapolis, but you can see some of her unique glaze work on the facing brick throughout different areas of the restaurant. Her collaboration with different chef/owners has led her to her latest work with Frida 602 in Covington, KY. While developing her line of restaurant work, individual place settings, and one of a kind serving wares, Bethany works at Queen City Clay, a large ceramic studio in Cincinnati, Ohio. She has helped to manage the studio, coordinate workshops and events, and currently teaches beginning and advanced level classes.
