Tucked away in the
rolling hills of Northern Kentucky, Traditions Golf Club is a haven for golf
enthusiasts. The Club opened in the Spring of 1992 with a mission to bring the
time honored standards of the game and present golf as it should be to golfers
in the Greater Cincinnati, Ohio and Northern Kentucky area. From its beginning,
the Championship 18-hole course found immediate favor in the golfing community
attracting a large contingent of 'serious' players. Traditions quickly received
acclaim by being ranked in the “Top 10 New Private Golf Clubs in the United
States” in 1992 by Golf Digest, which publishes a biannual listing of the top
100 new golf courses. (www.traditionsgolfclub.com).

Our Mission & Story
“Our mission is to honor the service and sacrifice of public safety heroes who give their lives in the line of duty - by caring for the loved ones they leave behind.”
SUPPORTING HEROES was born when a small group came together to discuss an idea about helping public safety personnel in their community. One of those present was Bill Keithley - father of Saint Louis Police Officer Gabriel Keithley. Officer Keithley had recently been shot and seriously wounded in the line of duty and his partner, Officer Nicholas Sloan, had been killed. Bill had watched as the public safety family in Saint Louis united to support Gabe, Gabe's family, and the family of Officer Sloan. He had also watched in amazement as the BackStoppers - a Saint Louis support organization for public safety families - helped the family of his son's partner.
Also present was Eric Johnson, a leader of an organization that provides peer support to families and co-workers of police officers killed in the line of duty. While the peer support provided by that organization on a national level is unparalleled, he had been consistently frustrated by the lack of financial support that was available to families following a line of duty death. It had long been his dream to help form a local organization similar to The BackStoppers to provide the much needed support. By the end of the first meeting, the group had decided to make that dream a reality. Hence, SUPPORTING HEROES was born.
The Goals Honor those in the police, fire, and EMS services who make the ultimate sacrifice. Create a vehicle by which citizens could show their appreciation for the daily service sacrifices of public safety servants. Assure those left behind that their loved ones would never be forgotten and that they, the survivors, would always be cared for.
While the group originally set out to achieve those goals in the Louisville, Kentucky area, it decided that the need was so great that the scope should be broadened. When operations began, all police, fire, and EMS personnel in all of Indiana and Kentucky were covered. Capturing the symbolism that September 11th has for all Americans with respect to its public safety heroes, the date was selected to launch the ambitious venture that was SUPPORTING HEROES. Armed with only the membership dues of the original eight board members, the new organization declared "We'll be there when tragedy strikes."
