A new, interactive exhibit is at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery and it is all about the Miami Valley’s extraordinary water resources. It’s called "SPLASH."

On Saturday morning at the Huffman Prairie Flying Field, which is adjacent to Wright- Pat, you can bring your dog, and a park ranger will tell how two dogs, "Flyer" and "Scipio" were the Wright Brothers “best friends” It’s from 9:00-11:00am.

The Dayton Philharmonic concert is at 5 p.m. on Sunday, at the Omega Baptist Church, in Dayton. Neal Gittleman will be the conductor and it will include the choir for a rousing rendition of “Hallelujah, You’re Worthy to Be Praised.
