If you have not yet been here you should plan a visit! This was the original home of the Wright family and has welcomed many other luminaries including Charles Lindbergh, Henry Ford, and Thomas Edison. The tour of both will begin at Carillon Historical Park in Dayton then bring you to Hawthorn Hill in Oakwood via shuttle van. There is much history to see between these two places!

Have a soft spot for animals? Ever think about helping them out in some way? Well, a great way to do so is to volunteer at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. These animals will be so grateful to have someone around. I feel like the hard part would be not taking them all home after spending time with them! To become a volunteer there is an orientation that is about two hours, after that it’s about meeting the Volunteer Coordinator to finish up. For more information and / or to sign up, click on the image below.
