6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Community Room

Event Details

The Story of Dayton is defined by its people. Soon after the Treaty of Greenville was signed, hardworking individuals started moving to Dayton in pursuit of the American dream. A unique blend of innovators, inventors and dreamers filled with unmistakable optimism contributed their energy and talents that eventually turned a wilderness with a few log cabins into a city of a thousand factories.  

 Years have passed and with the decline of heavy manufacturing, Dayton‚Äôs businesses have diversified into more of a service economy that includes information technology, healthcare, business services and logistics to name a few. That said, manufacturing still has a vital role to play in the future of Dayton; a future that will be defined by its people.
