A Bronze Star Evening BY GRAIG SMITH, Vice Chargé de Presse THE CINCINNATI BAILLIAGE'S holiday dinner on December 7 took place in the Hall of Mirrors at the land- mark Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. This art déco hotel was the perfect setting for the festive evening. Award-winning Executive Chef Todd Kelly and Vice Conseiller Gastronomique Barbara Lancor constructed a masterful multicourse menu exquisitely paired with wines selected by Vice Echanson Mike Monnin. The highlight of the evening was Bailli George Elliott's pre- sentation of the Bronze Star of Excellence to Vice Chargé de Missions Clint Haynes, who has been a Chaîne member since 2002 and has served on the board since 2005. He and his wife, Jean, are well known in the com- munity for generously donating their time and resources to the Chaîne and to vital chari- ties, including Cancer Family Care and the Cincinnati International Wine Festival. This past year, they hosted a lobster bake for the Cincinnati Chapter at their farm in rural Indiana and are planning a pig roast for next year. What a perfect way to celebrate Chaîne camarade- rie, the excellence of one of the chapter's favorite local chefs, and the giving spirit of Cincinnati confrères!
