There is an effort underway in the village of Yellow Springs to make it a dementia-friendly community. The Yellow Springs Senior Center, the Greene County Council on Aging, the Alzheimer’s Association and other groups are working together on the project and to tell us what it means to be a dementia-friendly community, is Toni Dosik. She is the project director for Dementia Friendly Yellow Springs.

Today on WYSO Curious, Community Voices producer Jonathan Platt takes a trip to Fairborn, Ohio in northwest Greene County, for a quick history lesson about how the town got its name:

 

The Concours d'Elegance is Dayton Histories largest fundraiser of the year. The annual event brings in antique automobile owners from near and far. This week we spoke with just two of the people involved in organizing and promoting the event. Skip Peterson is the board Chair for Concours, while Lauryn Bayliff is the Director of community development. In our interview we talk about highlights from this year’s event.
