This Day in Dayton, 8 July

In July, 1987, the Dennis O’Neal family, who lost everything in a fire in Lafayette, were relocated by a local charity to an apartment in Dayton. O’Neal praised the welcome he received. “The people of Dayton are really great,” 21-year-old Dennis O’Neal is quoted as telling Jack Alkire in Alkire’s “Around Here” column on July 8, 1987 in the Journal and Courier.
