Happy Hour To Benefit Cooper Park

cooperparkDayton’s oldest and most historic park is getting a makeover! With plans for new lighting, seating , an improved playground and an enhanced sense of place, transformations to Cooper Park are currently being designed.
Please join us for a benefit happy hour on October 16th from 5:30-7:30 at the Dayton Racquet Club as the first in a series of fund raising events planned.
Open to the public, this event will be a great opportunity to review the proposed plans for the park, provide your input and get involved. The fund raiser costs $25 with proceeds to be donated to the Cooper Park revitalization effort.
A raffle will also be held at the event, offering a chance to win a wide variety of prizes. Sangria and a variety of hors d ‘oeuvres will be offered and a cash bar will be available.

Call (937) 331-5621 ext. 231 to make reservations by October 13th. For more information on the Cooper Park revitalization effort, please contact Shannon Pote by email.

Roads, Rivers, Parks & Planes

The second in our series of Town Hall meetings will focus on how the City of Dayton is successfully leveraging strategic investments in our physical infrastructure, like roads, bridges, utilities, parks, rivers, airport runways, and more. Join us as we share the 2009 plan for infrastructure investment, and explain how these investments help stimulate private investment, support Dayton’s “pride of place,” and enhance the safety, efficiency, value and vitality of our city.
