Norwood Young Professionals celebrating 1st anniversary

We have a special feature today - a guest blog co-written by Jack Weston and Brian Hirsch, Executive members of The Norwood Young Professionals (NYP). Out favorite real estate blogger Jami Stutzman is also member, and when we contacted her Wednesday for an update on the group, we received this informative blog in just a few hours. As you’ll see, NYPs are really on the move with worthwhile projects throughout our community, they know a thing or two about having fun, plus they’ve started a new blog to keep everyone informed about their activities. We’ve added it to our ever-growing list of local links on the right hand side. Happy Birthday, guys and gals!

Guest blog by Jack Weston and Brian Hirsch:

The Norwood Young Professionals, or “NYPs”, are celebrating their first anniversary on July 20. An active group of Norwood residents in their 20’s and 30’s, NYP is an organization geared towards promoting community involvement and pride through social events and philanthropy. The NYPs host monthly happy hours at various watering holes around Norwood, as well as other social events such as tailgates and bowling outings. Recently, the NYPs also sponsored a successful team in the Norwood Relay for Life, raising over $2,000 for cancer research, and worked with Great American Cleanup to spruce up Norwood’s Waterworks Pool in time for the 9-team swim meet held there next week.

Coming up, the NYPs are hosting a kickball game at a Norwood park followed by a happy hour at a local pub on Saturday, August 9. We’ll notify CBN as soon as we have the exact locations. so you'll know where to find us. In September, the group is collaborating on an exciting project with Give Back Cincinnati called “Taking Care of Business” to freshen up the business corridor along Montgomery Road through painting, landscaping, and cleaning. This will bring over 100 young professionals from across Cincinnati to show off the great things our town has to offer.

NYP is growing quickly and looking for even more community involvement. If you are interested in learning more about the NYPs, upcoming events, or to join the NYP mailing list, please check out or send an email inquiry to
