  • Dave Trout - Just happy.
  • Kelly McDonald - Explosion at a Youngstown bank building. A public housing tower adjacent to the bank building that housed disabled and older people was declared to be an unsafe structure and the tenants had to be evacuated.  The good news is that the community and several organizations came to support those who were displaced.

Our speaker today was Dan Edwards.
For over 40 years, Dan has been an accomplished voice-over artist, top-rated radio DJ and Emmy nominated TV anchor and reporter.  He is a graduate of the Body Language Institute of Washington, D.C., making him one of the few master-certified professional developmental speakers in the country focusing on proven body language techniques.  He has impacted a new generation of communication students as a former Adjunct Professor at the University of Dayton.  Dan is the host of "A Greater Dayton with Dan Edwards", a biweekly podcast focusing on Dayton's unsung hometown heroes who inspire, entertain, and inform.  Today, Dan is here to speak about the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts, where he supports the efforts of the Community Outreach Program
The presentation was mostly a series of videos of staff speaking about their respective work areas.
