William and Harriet Clippard Family Branch YMCA
The Colerain YMCA was established on the corner of Cheviot and Poole with an outdoor pool, two tennis courts, some parking and a house trailer office. It operated programs in various locations for several years. About 1991, George H. Edmiston, President of the YMCA, approached the Clippard family about building a full service YMCA on site. Clippard Instrument Laboratory, Inc. agreed to make a lead gift to get the fund raising campaign off to a start. Clippard family members and employees helped raise funds and continue to this day. Many individuals and organizations rose to the challenge, and on March 6, 1994 the William and Harriet Clippard Family Branch YMCA dedicated its new facility in Colerain Township. It continues to be one of the most successful YMCAs in Cincinnati, undergoing it's third expansion since 1994.
Clippard Athletic Teams & Community Service
Clippard Instrument Laboratory, Inc. supports a number of youth soccer teams, employee sports teams, baseball programs and community service. Clippard Instrument Laboratory is proud to be their sponsor.

Clippard Park
A 15 acre park located near Bevis Elementary School with entries on Dewhill Drive and Bevis Lane, originally opened in the 1970's.  In January 2008, Colerain Township started the process of redeveloping the park by holding the first of five public meetings to get input from residents.  The community's input was used to develop three conceptual plans incorporating suggestions given at the meetings.  The plans were first presented to the Board of Trustees on May 13, 2008 for their input.  After minor tweaking to the plans, a final concept plan was accepted.  Brandstetter Carroll was hired to design the formal plans for the redevelopment which would include an additional five acres being purchased in part by a NatureWorks grant through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. 

Construction began in July 2009 and was complete in September 2010.
