It’s time again for the semi-annual highway cleanup of Highway 221 (Third St.) from Highway 18 to Stringtown Rd. Two miles toward Salem.
Fittingly, we’ll hold it on the same day as Dayton’s city cleanup, Saturday, April 28.
Join your civic-minded friends for a couple of hours making your assigned section of 221 trash-free.
We’ll set out from the Blockhouse Café at 8 a.m. and normally finish around 10.
Dayton’s Adopt-A-Highway project was started by John Francis and Caye Poe about six years ago and soon became supported by DCDA.
If you’d like to volunteer for the cleanup contact the organizers so they can plan out assignments in advance.

Bring your sweetheart or your sweet tooth, buy a $10 passport online or at one of the participating businesses, and enjoy our walkable downtown while tasting complimentary chocolate treats at each stop! Each business will be showcasing their cuisine and wares along with a bite-sized sample of a chocolate treat. All proceeds from the Downtown Chocolate Crawl support the Dayton Community Development Association and community activities for YOU!
Passports for the 3rd Annual “Chocolate Crawl” can be purchased now in our online marketplace! Passports are $10.00 each.
