Tell us your Dayton Strong stories

As we all know, from the headlines or from living it, this has been a challenging year in Dayton.

Were you or your family affected by the tornadoes? Did you help with the cleanup?

Did you know someone who was in the Oregon District that terrible night? Were you there?

How did you feel when a hate group came to the city? Did you protest? Did you find a way to respond?

We'd like to hear your Dayton Strong story.

Dayton Daily News reporters Cornelius Frolik and Amelia Robinson will be listening to your Dayton Strong stories from 4-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24 at the Dayton Metro Library's downtown branch, 215 E. Third St., Dayton.

We will be recording audio of all shared stories, and will be recording some video interviews for a special WHIO-TV project. Our goal is to create a digital library of our community’s Dayton Strong stories.

Here’s how to share:

Sign up for a 15-minute slot between 4-7:15 p.m. on this Google formWe have a limited amount of slots, so registration is required. (Note: If you are interested in sharing but the form is full, email to be put on the waiting list, in case spots open up.)

After you register, we’ll contact you via email to confirm, as well as to tell you your assigned location in the library.

We recommend showing up at the library approximately 5-10 minutes before you are scheduled. This will give you time to find your assigned location and complete check-in.
