Dayton, Ohio - As part of the Great American Cleanup initiative, the Dayton Dragons and the Montgomery County Environmental Services will host a cleanup event on May 10th from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. at 624 Xenia Avenue in Dayton (East End Community Services).

All participating volunteers in the Dragons cleanup event will receive a Dragons hat and will be entered into a drawing for other great Dragons prizes.
