The Dayton Community Development Association (DCDA) has asked for nominations of frontline workers, who live in Dayton, that you feel are a hero in the eyes of their hometown!
We received 15 nominations, thank you! From those we drew 5 names to highlight this week. Each hero recipient will receive a gift certificate to one of our local downtown businesses (also drawn at random).
It’s our way of saying THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO! And Thank you to our businesses for weathering the storm and being here for the community.
If you’d like to nominate someone this week, there’s still time! Use this Google-Form link
