  • Art out loud

    Adding aural aesthetics to the annual Art on the Lawn were buskers — some younger, some older — like Matt Minde and daughter Eliza Minde-Berman, who played the crowds for a good three hours. (Photo by Diane Chiddister)

    Last Saturday’s annual Art on the Lawn represented the 34th year that artists both local and from around the region displayed their wares on the green grass of Mills Lawn School.

    About 150 people gathered outside the Beavercreek Walmart last Saturday, Aug. 5, to mark the third anniversary of the death of John Crawford III, who was shot by Beavercreek police inside the store in 2014.

  • Orchestrating support

    A capacity crowd turned out for the annual Friends Music Camp benefit concert for Glen Helen, which took place last Saturday, July 29, at the Foundry Theater. Both campers and camp staffers performed a varied program ranging from Wagner to Gershwin, including American folk music, jazz and original compositions. The event raised more than $2,140 for the Glen, with checks still coming in. (Photo by Matt Minde)

    Clouds threatened rain, but that didn’t stop hundreds of villagers who lined Xenia Avenue downtown Tuesday for the annual Fourth of July parade.

  • July 4th in my hometown

    Up next was the YS Kids Playhouse in the long line of 4th of July paraders down Xenia Avenue. The day was rounded out by a spectacular fireworks display at Gaunt Park (Photo by Matt Minde)

    For many years—though my parents live a block from downtown, where the parade takes place—I didn’t go to it. I’m not a big parade person.
