‘Clean Up Cloud Park’ day is success

Did you know the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission (MVRPC) will hold a Public Participation Meeting to give an update on the 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan?

The meeting will be held at the MVRPC office at Courthouse Square from 4-6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12. The address is 10 N. Ludlow Street, Suite 700.

I would love for some Huber Heights residents who are interested in transportation issues of the future to attend. I have heard more than one time that people have never heard about these meetings. I have been trying to get input from Huber Heights residents for years and hope some of you will mark your calendar and plan to attend.

MVRPC staff will be there to take comments. This is your opportunity to have input on the planning for the future of the Miami Valley. Parking passes will be distributed for the City of Dayton’s Municipal Garage located across Ludlow Street at 123 W. Third Street.

Did you know the “Clean Up Cloud Park” day was very successful?

Many residents came out to help and at the end of the day there was a trailer loaded with trash collected by all the volunteers. Some of the shelters were spruced up and painted also.

Now if users of the park will just do their part and use the trash cans instead of the ground to dispose of their litter, the park will stay looking great.

Richard Shaw did a super job organizing this activity and many residents, families and groups were there to make the park look great. Thank you to all who participated.

Did you know the Huber Heights library is having a free introduction to nonprofits, grants and fundraising?

You will learn about fundraising strategies with a step-by-step guide of how to get grants for your non-profit. You are asked to register in advance for this presentation and you can do this at the library.

The orientation will be Friday, Aug.14 from 1 to 4 p.m. If you are involved with a non-profit and need to raise funds, this would be a good thing for you to attend learn from the professionals.

Did you know Texas Roadhouse has a “Stuff The Bus” activity planned for Aug. 25?

All you have to do is bring a school supply to put in the bus. The school supplies will be donated to Huber Heights City Schools.

That’s not all. They will also donate 10 percent of food sales that evening to Every Warrior Plays, PLUS you will receive a free appetizer when you turn in your school supply. My goodness. We should all make plans to eat at Texas Roadhouse at 5611 Merily Way on the 25th. They certainly are being a good community supporter and partner.

I understand the Huber Heights Fire Department will be there, along with Patches for some entertainment. Start saving your money and plan to spend a great evening out with the family. I can’t think of an easier and more enjoyable way to help the Huber Heights City Schools and athletes. See you there? I’m marking my calendar now.
