Clayton plans three community events for October

The city of Clayton has planned events for the month of October that include an open house, a clean sweep and fall fun festival.

Open House

First responders and the service department will host an open house on Tuesday for the community to interact with firefighters, police officers and service department workers.

There will be activities for children that includes a dunk tank and games that incorporate aspects of the different departments.

Hot dogs and drinks will be provided for those in attendance.

CareFlight and the Montgomery County SWAT team will be at the event that runs from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Clayton Government Center on Taywood Road.

Fall Clean Sweep

Clayton wants residents to bring unwanted items for a “fall cleaning,” and they will dispose of them, for free, to all residents of the city.

On Oct. 19 from 8 a.m. to noon at 200 Woolery Lane, Clayton will accept junk, debris, brush and other miscellaneous household items to dispose. Refrigerators are included in the drop off but must be drained.

The city advises no paints, liquids, Freon, tires or other hazardous material will be accepted.

Children’s Festival

The city of Clayton asks you to join the Meadowbrook at Clayton for its annual Children’s Fall Festival for all children from kindergarten through eighth grade.

The event will have pumpkin carving contests, with tools provided, and a costume contest.

Goodie bags will be handed out at the end of the event, light refreshments will be provided and the cost is free to attend, although leaders ask you to RSVP at 937-836-3500.

The Fall Festival is from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 27 at the Meadowbrook at Clayton on Salem Avenue.
