old worthington partnership

The Old Worthington Partnership is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization focusing on a clear vision of enhancing the Old Worthington Experience. Achievement of the vision is pursued via three key areas: collaboration, engagement and sustainability.

The Partnership collaborates with many of the other organizations that care about the wellbeing of Old Worthington in order to support residents, businesses and visitors. The Partnership engages in various ways such as community events (Farmers Markets, Picnic with the Partnership, Arts Festival, Wedding Walk, Holiday Open House and Illuminating Shopping) and hosting merchant meetings. The organization also provides ideas and input on ways to preserve Worthington’s community’s assets, including the historic buildings, promoting walking and biking resources, saving energy and other resources.

Our 2016-2017 Annual Report can be downloaded here.

The Old Worthington Partnership is a member of Heritage Ohio and an affiliate-member of the national Main Street organization.

Annina Parini

Nina has a long career in the project planning and program management world. She started her career on Capitol Hill, herding members of Congress at official events, traveling with Capitol Police to do advance work, and acting as the lead on all logistics for the State of the Union and other major Congressional events. Upon moving to Columbus, she worked at another great institution, COSI Columbus, where she ran the events department, before moving on to the “other” great institution in town, The Ohio State University. At The Moritz College of Law, Nina nurtured the Program on Law and Leadership into the keystone program that it is today.

Nina’s love affair with Old Worthington began 6 years ago when she and her husband purchased their family home 4 blocks off of High Street. They chose Old Worthington as their forever home because of the great walkability to charming shops and restaurants, great neighborhood schools, and many amenities that an inner-ring suburb affords. Before moving to Worthington, they lived in Grandview for 5 years, having moved there from Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

Nina grew up in Eaton, OH as the middle Dues kid, and received her BA in Political Science from Miami University. Nina has been married to her husband for 13 lucky years, and has 3 young boys. You’ll never find her far from Old Worthington, but if you need to reach her, contact her at oldworthingtonpartnership@gmail.com.
