GREENVILLE – The Women’s Spring Fling “Women Equal Justice” ‘Breaking Glass Ceilings’ Event held on April 19 at Sure Shot Tap House was a huge success… raising over $2,000 for the local Cancer Association of Darke County.

According to Matt Guyette, recently elected Chairman of the Darke Democrat Party, “A standing room only crowd was on hand to enjoy the festivities and listen to the featured speaker Nan Whaley, former Mayor of the City of Dayton and Ohio Governor’s candidate in 2022.”

Whaley related her family background and how she then got into politics and “broke the glass ceiling” by becoming the first woman elected to the Dayton City Commission. She then went on to serve two successful terms as Mayor and provided the leadership Dayton needed during the Memorial Day weekend Tornadoes of 2019. She also helped guide the community through the tragic Oregon District mass shooting incident of August 4, 2019.

Whaley went on to encourage all in attendance to “get involved in politics, because the future of your City, County, State & Nation depends on committed citizen involvement”. The

The event also included a 50/50 raffle, silent auctions of artwork and other fun activities, and a good time was had by all.
