Dayton mayor proclaims July 29 as ‘Old School Museum Docent Day’

Danny Bode, president of the Dayton Historical Society, accepts a proclamation from Dayton Mayor Caroline Wadzeck proclaiming July 29 as "Old School Museum Docent Day."

Dayton Mayor Caroline Wadzeck has proclaimed July 29 as “Old School Museum Docent Day” in honor of the dedicated 21 docents, also known as guides, who give their time to share Dayton’s history with the community.

A packed house of Dayton Historical Society members enjoyed a hot dog dinner and homemade ice cream as Wadzeck presented the proclamation to Society President Danny Bode.

Docents were recognized individually and received ‘thank you’ bags for their volunteer service.
