    The 2015 Street Fair

    The 2015 Autumn Street Fair pulled a substantial amount of people from out of town to enjoy a variety of crafts, food, and music throughout the day. Clear skies and cool temperatures no doubt contributed to the success of the event, which has been a tradition in town for quite some time.

    Village resident Gene Lohman loves the “flex” bus — Greene County’s public transit system. When he wants to get anywhere — from downtown to Xenia or Beavercreek — he simply puts himself at a place along the bus route and hails a ride.
