March 2019 Around Town 1

Work It Out

Spring is here and time to start hitting the gym before summer vacation. Flex your mental muscles and finish the year strong with Mathnasium. Loveland’s specialized math learning center has recently hired a new instructor, Samantha Collier, to help boost those brain-building sessions. Samantha, Blanchester High School’s 2014 valedictorian, is a Wright State University grad with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, currently working toward a master’s in education at her alma mater. In addition to teaching at Mathnasium, Samantha is also student-teaching pre-calc at Waynesville High School.

Cut a Rug

Carpet Depot’s got a new place for you to cut a rug … or laminate … or luxury vinyl tile. Opening soon in the Loveland Crossing shopping center off Loveland-Madeira Road, Carpet Depot’s second location is a natural addition to this well-known staple of Loveland. They’re eager to showcase their new space, featuring on-site consultations for selecting the perfect flooring for your home. Looking for a floor-to-ceiling change? Carpet Depot also offers Wallplanks Peel & Stick Wood to add texture, color and depth to any room.

Wish You Were Here

Spring Break is upon us, but nothing beats the relaxing reprieve (and dare we say decadence) of a pampered and unplugged staycation. No need to pack, just schedule time (a lot of it) to give yourself the spa treatment, specifically from Cincinnati’s Woodhouse Day Spa—now an even better choice for lapping up luxury with two locations to choose from. Earlier this year, the Woodhouse Day Spa opened up its newest destination in Liberty Township, a companion to the original flagship retreat in Olde Montgomery. With 70 distinct spa treatments, both offer everything you need when it comes to relaxation and rejuvenation. Rest assured, every appointment is a getaway—the spa was founded with a focus on creating an experience that would rival a vacation. Owner Chris Mann traveled all over the world visiting spas in various counties in order to build one right here at home that would offer a “true escape from the stressors of everyday life.” See for yourself if he succeeded.

A New Stage

Loveland Stage Company isn’t just putting on performances, they’re staging new ways to help local students. To support young talent, the LSC will be presenting two $1,000 scholarships—the annual Loveland Stage Company Creative Arts Scholarship and, new this year, the Jacqueline Knapp Memorial Scholarship, a one-time award in memory of longtime LSC participant and supporter. Applicants for the Creative Arts Scholarship must be high school seniors considering a creative arts major in college—either performance or visual art—and must live in the Loveland City School District or have family that are Loveland Stage Company members. For those considering the Jacqueline Knapp Memorial Scholarship, one can be either a high school senior or a student already enrolled in college in 2019. Applicants must have participated in at least one LSC production, whether in a supporting role or through technical or backstage work. Applications for both scholarships close on March 10.
