Refresh Your Soul 2017 from Parish Health Ministry at Episcopal Retirement Services ERS John OLeary Cintas Center Xavier University March 13 14 2017

Burnt beyond recognition from an accident at home with gasoline, clinging for life in a hospital at age 9, John O’Leary’s mother asked him if he wanted to live or die.

O’Leary remembers thinking only how much trouble he was going to get in with his dad.

“The only other thing I was thinking was. ‘Do I have the strength to take the next step in my journey?” says O’Leary, now married, a best-selling author and inspirational speaker.

O’Leary is also the keynote speaker for the 2017 Refresh Your Soul Conference, presented annually by the Parish Health Ministry of Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS), an event expanding in exponential fashion this year with a two-day symposium in partnership with the Dementia Care Summit at Xavier University.

To be held at The Cintas Center March 13 and 14, the 2017 Refresh Your Soul Conference, the primary fundraising vehicle for Parish Health Ministry, promises to be as insightful, thought-provoking, informative and fun as ever.

A longtime service of ERS, Parish Health Ministry serves as the ecumenical outreach between ERS (http://www.episcopalretirement.com) and 70+ churches across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

Mr. O’Leary will be sharing his inspirational life story and buoyant messages to a crowd of caregivers and health care professionals seeking to understand more about life-changing conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

He will be joined by renowned industry speakers Loretta Anne Woodward Veney and Teepa Snow; Ms. Snow spoke at the Refresh Your Soul 2016 event last year.

Alzheimer’s & Dementia: Overcoming the Struggles and Living Inspired” is the theme for 2917; day two is the annual Xavier Dementia Care Summit. Refresh Your Soul tickets are on sale for $69.

Contact Hours are available for continuing education and professional accreditation purposes (RN/LPN, Social Worker, Nursing Home Administrator, etc.).

Ms. Veney is an author and well-known speaker who has motivated, taught and trained audiences throughout the U.S. and Europe. She is the founder and principal consultant of Superior Training Solutions, LLC.

Ms. Veney has delivered numerous presentations on Dementia and elder care planning for the Alzheimer’s Association, support groups, and memory care communities.

Loretta chronicles her nine-year journey with her Mom’s Dementia as their parent/child roles have reversed in her book, “Being My Mom’s Mom – A Journey through Dementia from a Daughter’s Perspective.” Their journey has been faithful, funny, heartbreaking and hopeful.

Teepa Snow is one of America’s leading educators on Dementia. Working as a Registered Occupational Therapist for more than 30 years, her experience has led her to develop Positive Approach™ to Care techniques used by families and professionals working or living with dementia throughout the world.

She has an independent practice as well as clinical appointments with Duke University and University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Teepa is an enlightening, witty, entertaining, and energetic speaker.

Registration, exhibitors and continental breakfast for Refresh Your Soul 2017 starts at 8 a.m. Luncheon presentations will be offered by Mr. O’Leary and Ms. Veney, entitled “ON FIRE: The 7 Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life” and “Lifting the Spirit of Caregivers,” respectively.

Online Release:

Constructing the $100 Developer, By Design

Cincinnati United Contractors (CUC) diversifies design offerings, credits relationships with municipalities and business owners: Reputations earned, and kept, dealing with real-world issues.

Municipalities Remain: The Infrastructure and Backbone of the Queen City.

Smart Growth with Exceptional Schools: “Winners Want To Be With Winners.’

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ Feb. 23, 2017] One of Cincinnati’s best-known developers has once again hit the $100 million mark by sticking to old-school principles, while offering a diverse palette of new buildings, new product and design at Cincinnati United Contractors (CUC) Inc., soon to be celebrating a 40-year anniversary. Revenue growth has remained consistent between 10-20 percent annually since the crash of 2008.

We’ve been fortunate to be above $100 million for the last several years by applying our skills and talents to any project type,” says Chance Truemper, vice president of Cincinnati United Contractors – CUC (www.cintiunited.com).

There’s a saying around here: We’ll build anything from your doghouse to the penthouse,” Truemper says.

Whatever it takes – and, sometimes, it takes building that doghouse, for someone to get to know you, in order to get the opportunity to build their penthouse.”

Like every other year since 1978, CUC has earned its stripes through relationships earned, and promises kept, with the many and various corporate clients, business owners and municipalities located throughout Greater Cincinnati.

It’s not just a strategy at Cincinnati United Contractors (CUC). It’s a cornerstone block. “Particularly with the cities,” Truemper says.

Municipalities are key to being successful in construction and development. Taking the city, county, and/or township on as a partner is critical,” Truemper says.

Municipalities are in charge of buying police cars, fire trucks, snow plows, and many other aspects of city needs. Usually they’re one of the biggest employers. If you have a good city manager and a pro-business council, you will be able to attract great businesses. Business interests can, in turn, pour all kinds of tax money back into the community.”


A manufacturing rebound has boosted CUC, as well as light industrial, and office work such as the new $20 million Blue Ash headquarters for Integrity Express Logistics on Cooper Road. CUC recently added another office building at the popular Summit Woods Office Park in Sharonville; construction recently wrapped up on the East Side in Milford (UC Health and Roney’s) and in Mount Orab (new AutoMall for Mark Williams Auto Group).

We’re still doing a wide variety of projects. So much of our business is referral-based, so we actually do enjoy the variety,” Truemper says.


Cincinnati United Contractors – CUC is a Cincinnati native and development/construction company owner who learned the business literally from the group up: he spent his early years in the business behind the steering wheel of a bulldozer for Gallenstein Co. Truemper has been a vice president at Cincinnati United Contractors – CUC for seven years; he’s a University of Cincinnati graduate from the renowned UC College of Applied Science.

Cincinnati is comprised of a quirky network of cities, counties, villages, townships, and states – a terrain few know better than Kubicki, Truemper and their home-grown team at CUC. “The success of local school districts, in particular, remains a prime catalyst for the success of any real estate project,” Kubicki says.

When school districts require a levy, home owners need to understand the positive impact it will have on their property values,” Kubicki adds.

Whether it’s for your own living expenses, or for passing wealth on to the next generation, having a house in a good school district is critical. It’s a tremendous advantage, to development, if the Superintendent is running her or his school district like a municipality. Just like a City Manager, a School Superintendent is running a large company.”

Winners want to be with winners,” concluded Kubicki.

There are many who will vote down levies simply because they don’t have children in the school district anymore. However, that home is probably one of their biggest investments, and they need it to be worth as much as possible when it’s time to sell.”
