The Woman’s Club of Dayton Foundation, the YWCA Dayton and the Friends of the Dayton Arcade have teamed up on an initiative aimed at honoring and preserving Dayton’s unique history. They have formed the “Jewels of the Gem City” Committee to select “individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to the historic preservation of Dayton.”
The public is invited to nominate those who have made financial, educational, cultural, promotional or restorative contributions to Dayton’s heritage. Nominations will be reviewed by a selection committee, and the “Jewels of the Gem City” will be announced in March and honored at an event on June 4, 2010. Nominations are due by February 1, 2010, and can be made by downloading a form from www.thedaytonwomansclub.com, www.ywcadayton.org or www.daytonarcade.wetpaint.com.
