Born and raised here – there are MANY things about the Dayton Communities that I know about first-hand and LOVE!  That is the reason why I wanted to take the continuing education courses offered by the DABR and for the right to earn the designation of “Dayton Region Ambassador.”  I want to be the person you call with questions about what our area has to offer…so I’ve compiled some of the highlights from the class to share with you here:

Speaker from Carillon Park shared interesting Dayton History CLICK HERE FOR DAYTON HISTORY WEBSITE LINK

Our Economic Development and Downtown Growth was talked about by the Downtown Dayton Partnership CLICK HERE FOR DDP LINK

The Hospital Systems we have are not just an amazing JOB OPPORTUNITY but they are vital to our continued success, working together all of the area hospitals are served through the GREATER DAYTON AREA HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION, CLICK HERE FOR GDAHA LINK

Of course, WPAFB is a huge economic boom to our communities and the AIR FORCE BASE MUSEUM is unparallelled for the history and collections of artifacts, and it is FREE TO VISIT!  CLICK HERE FOR MUSEUM LINK

In talking about the ARTS and PERFORMING ARTS our area has, there is SOOOOO MUCH to see and do!  People from around the country who have visited and been able to attend a production have been IMPRESSED with our level of performances – and we should not just take that for granted!  It’s time to get out and enjoy the amazing talent we have in our own backyard and SUPPORT THE ARTS!

If you know anything about me, you know that I love BASEBALL – and even though I first thought it was a strange choice to put a ball field downtown, I am one person who LOVES to attend the games!  Our Dragons players have been able to play in front of  SOLD OUT home-town crowds and 63 of the players since 2000 have been able to take the next step into playing in the majors with the Cincinnati Reds!! THAT’S PRETTY AMAZING!?  CLICK HERE FOR THE DAYTON DRAGONS LINK

And as always, if you have a specific question, please feel free to contact me anytime.  Check out any of the websites and see just one of the many reasons why I LOVE DAYTON!
