I hope you had the opportunity to enjoy the River City Music Festival. It was a wonderful two nights of music and fun! I applaud the Dayton Civic Club and all their work to put on such an amazing event to raise funds for Light Up Dayton and to purchase toys for our city’s children.
The Dayton Main Street Board’s I 8 in Dayton program is wrapping up. It was a great promotion that brought a lot of attention to our many great restaurants. I got all my stamps for I 8 in Dayton, as it was fun, and I had a lot of great meals. If you’ve got all eight stamps, you can pick up your t-shirt at the city building.
