All systems are "go" for the centennial birthday celebration for the Ohio Valley Hospital/Trinity School of Nursing, which has graduated 2,173 nurses in its 100-year history.
The OVH/Trinity School of Nursing Alumni Association led by Blanche Williams, president, is planning an anniversary celebration for Aug. 18 at St. Florian Hall in Wintersville.
"It will be a great time for reminiscing and renewing old acquaintances," reads a recent letter sent to alumni.
A tea and tour of the former nurses' residence will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the main lobby at Trinity East, the former OVH, on Aug. 18 as well.
Pictures will be taken of all the attendees, and a directory will be made and mailed. There is an option to purchase the booklet or decline. The cost for the directory is $10.
The schedule for the St. Florian Hall festivities include:
The event is BYOB with mixes supplied.
Tickets will be at the door. Spouses and friends are invited.
The cost is $35 per person ($10 extra if directory is desired.)
Checks can be made payable to OVH/Trinity Alumni Association and mailed to 1 Ross Park, Steubenville OH 43952.
The registration deadline is July 30.

Jefferson Behavioral Health System has announced a new annual project and fundraiser for the organization.
"We will be collecting the best mouth-watering, delicious recipes that will be submitted by our nearly 100 employees and publishing them into a professionally produced cookbook that is sure to become a keepsake item," the JBHS newsletter notes.
The recipes will include appetizers, salads, soups, entrees, side dishes, and desserts.
Recipes will be collected during July with the cookbook expected to be available by September, just in time for the fall and holiday season.
Jefferson employees will be receiving notification for their recipe submissions beginning in early July, according to the newsletter.
There will be between 250 and 300 recipes in this first edition.
"These cookbooks will make great gifts for family and friends and will be made available to the service providers and supporters of our organization. The cookbooks will also be marketed through our newsletter and our website," the newsletter notes.
For information or to reserve copies of the cookbook, call Lou Stein, director of development, at (740) 264-7751 ext 242.
