Cherry blossom trail grows in Dayton

Former Governor Bob Taft, Mayor Nan Whaley, DP&L President/CEO Tom Raga and Mr. Alex Hara joined community members on May 1 to plant trees along Dayton's cherry blossom trail. The trail of trees along the western shore of the Great Miami River near downtown Dayton will connect two landmarks, the Dayton Art Institute and Carillon Historical Park, with dozens of cherry trees. The trees were donated by DP&L and Operation 1000 Cherry Tree Project, a non-profit initiative that has coordinated planting cherry trees in the Dayton area for several years.
