Looking back a little, May was an incredible month in Dayton! First I want to congratulate all of this year’s graduates! With Dayton High School’s College and Career Readiness score of 100, an average ACT score 20.7, and over $4.5 million in scholarships, the hard work you’ve put in really shows!
Last weekend, I had the honor of walking in the 88th Annual Dayton-Bellevue Memorial Day Parade. I want to thank the Parade Committee as this was one of the best Memorial Day Parades I can remember. Kudos also need to go out to our public works department for all of their hard work in getting the city ready for the parade.
We had another ribbon cutting in our Main Street District, welcoming Trotta’s Steak and Seafood to Dayton. The Main Street program also had their first Food Truck Thursday, the next Food Truck Thursday will be July 13 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
Last but not least, the new fire truck was delivered to the Bellevue-Dayton Fire Department just in time for the parade.
Looking forward, Paint the Town will be here painting 19 houses in Dayton on Saturday, June 10. The Dayton Civic Club is getting everything ready for the River City Music Fest II on Saturday, June 17, with 10 bands, crafts, food trucks and more.
Mark your calendars for the Dayton City-Wide Yard Sale on July 22nd. You can sign up by calling the city at 491-1600, or register your yard sale online at www.daytonky.com/yardsale. Remember this is the one day a year you can have a yard sale, without needing to get a yard sale permit.
Until next month, enjoy the summer!
