On Friday, January 7th, Marti Bledsoe Post, the Executive Director of the On Our Sleeves movement for children’s mental health spoke to Dublin AM Rotary.
 
A national crisis has been hiding in plain sight. Children's mental health has been one of the least talked about issues in pediatrics — until now.

With the creation of On Our Sleeves, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, America’s largest network of pediatric behavioral health treatment providers and researchers and home to the Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion, is determined to give this cause a voice. 

Because children don’t wear their thoughts on their sleeves, On Our Sleeves will break stigmas and educate families and advocates about children’s mental health. Their mission is to provide every family in America access to free, evidenced-based educational resources, powered by the  experts from Nationwide Children’s and its collaborating partners. Since launching on 2018, On Our Sleeves has reached more than 2 million people with free educational resources to start conversations, educate families, and boost mental health and wellness.  

In Marti's role with the On Our Sleeves movement, Marti leads strategy and operations. Marti is passionate about advocating for children, families and wellness as the founder of a’parently, a consultancy offering programs and resources to support parents in the workplace. Marti is a published author and sought-after national speaker on parents in the workforce.

In addition to founding a’parently, Marti has a distinguished career in leadership roles. She most recently served as chief strategy officer for Mindset Digital and prior to that as vice president, Strategy, for the digital agency Mindstream Interactive.

Marti is the proud mom of two school-aged kids and an Ohio native. She earned her undergraduate degree from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, and her master’s degree from Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York.

Dublin Community Bands - How we started, where we stand, and what we aspire to

Our featured guest speaker was Tim Jameson, Dublin Community Bands founder and board member, and the Dublin Silver Band director.  

The Dublin Cornet Band was founded in 1879 and remained active until 1929. This program was a precursor to the revival of the Dublin band tradition in 2010, whose initial focus was to form an elite performance group modeled after the British brass band. A British brass band is a musical ensemble comprising brass and percussion instruments. These groups perform a variety of traditional and contemporary repertoire and have a strong focus on competition.

Since its founding in 2010, the Dublin Community Band program has grown to include:

  • Dublin Silver Band: The Silver Band is a British brass band with 32 members who have competed nationally and internationally and is the current North American Brass Band reigning champion.
  • Dublin Wind Symphony:  The Wind Symphony is a concert band open to all to participate that typically performs 9-10 times per year to audiences ranging from 300-400 in size. 
  • Dublin City Swing Orchestra: The Swing Orchestra is a jazz band that performs 15-20 times per year at various indoor and outdoor venues.  

Their offerings for musicians have further expanded recently to include British brass band experiences for students - the Dublin Youth Brass Band and the general public - the Dublin Metro Brass Band.

Be sure to attend one of the performances of these exemplary groups soon. They are an important cultural asset for our community.

Many members brought family, twin girls with leopard tennis shoes, sons with cars and patient spouses seeing it all. 
 
Lou will share more thanks and impressions, please send your congratulations to Chairman Lou and this club of terrific people.
 
Our next big effort will be chaired by Dave Williamson at the OSU/BMI Credit Union parking over 3 football dates in September.  See you all there and at next Friday's meeting.
