American Financial Group, Inc. Announces Carl H. Lindner Jr. - A Celebration Tour

October 19, 2011


To commemorate and celebrate the life of Carl H. Lindner, Jr., a parade will take place through his beloved Cincinnati, Norwood and other local communities on Friday, October 21, 2011. Mr. Lindner was passionate about staying connected with the neighborhoods where he grew up, started his businesses and raised his family. Although his memorial service will be private, all are encouraged to pay tribute and offer a final farewell and celebrate a life well lived as a devoted Christian, husband, father and businessman as the parade route carries him along this journey one last time. The route encompasses many, but certainly not all, of the people, churches, homes, buildings, organizations and programs that were close to Mr. Lindner's heart.
