NORTHERN, KY – January 28, 2015 – ITNGreaterCincinnati (ITNGC) is pleased to announce that local author Robert Schrage, a resident of Dayton, KY has generously offered to donate a portion of the proceeds of the sale of his new book to ITNGreaterCincinnati. The book, Legendary Locals of Covington, profiles many well-known people important to the history of Covington. Some examples are Clay Wade Bailey, Doc Rusk, Mary Ellen Moore, Kenny Price, local artist Kevin T. Kelly, and many more. Schrage served as Assistant Director for the Northern Kentucky Area Development District for 27 years and has served in many community organizations, including being a volunteer driver for ITNGC. He is active in the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and has written several other books.
The mission of ITNGC is to provide seniors (60+) and visually impaired adults (18+) with a 24/7 transportation resource that is “arm-through-arm, door-through-door and helps you go where you want to go when you want to go.” This model empowers its non-driving members to regain control of their transportation decisions. ITNGC breaks down the isolation that comes when seniors surrender their keys, and gives visually impaired adults freedom to go beyond bus routes at a cost they can afford. ITNGC now offers rides in Ohio and Kentucky, with volunteers providing most of the rides.
Schrage understands this mission and recognizes ITNGC’s benefit to individuals as well as its contribution to business and to the community. You need only contact Schrage at firstname.lastname@example.org and mention that you are purchasing to benefit ITNGC and he will mail the book to you (FREE SHIPPING). The price is $21.99 + tax and Schrage will sign your copy of the book! In February, Covington will be celebrating its bi-centennial., What better way to celebrate than with a book about “legendary locals”!
ITNGC has been operating in the Greater Cincinnati area since May 2010. The Vision Coalition of Greater Cincinnati and the Deaconess Associations Foundation,brought ITNGC to the area to address a significant local need for transportation for older adults and visually impaired adults on both sides of the river. They coordinated their resources and together formed ITNGreaterCincinnati, a local affiliate of the national ITNAmerica non-profit organization. Now ITNGC serves residents within the I-275 loop in Kentucky and Ohio.
