This year has gone by fast. Dayton has had such a great turnout of citizens investing their time and energy this year to do whatever it took to bring other citizens together and more outsiders into our city. This investment by citizens is what makes our community a great city. I have no doubt that on Tuesday, November 8 you will make it to the polling booth to vote for the city council candidates you feel will serve our city well. I would like to wish every one of the candidates good luck!
Light Up Dayton will be held on Sunday, December 4, at the Bellevue-Dayton Fire Department from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. This event is for Dayton residents only, and is one of the great events for kids put on by the Dayton Civic Club. There will be lots to do, and of course Santa will be there with a gift for each kid. Try not to miss it. The kids and you will love this kickoff to the Christmas season.
The City of Dayton sincerely thanks Captain Chuck Enzweiler for his 34 years of service to the cities of Dayton and Bellevue. Captain Enzweiler retired from the Bellevue-Dayton Fire Department on October 1. We wish him all the best. We would also like to congratulate Lt./Medic Chris Adkins, who was promoted to Captain, and FF/Medic Brian Boyers, who was promoted to Lieutenant, on October 19. We are fortunate to have a fire department with employees who dedicate themselves to the care and safety of our citizens.
In closing I wanted to remind everyone that the City Building will be closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 24 and on Friday, November 25. We wish you a happy Thanksgiving!
