Dayton was struck with a terrible tragedy on August 4th when a gunman killed 9 people and injured 27 others in the Oregon district downtown. That evening, thousands of Dayton residents gathered for a vigil to mourn the loss of their friends, family, and community members. While a somber event, this demonstrated the strength and perseverance in the community. Members of our production team were at the vigil and recorded video of some of the speeches, performances and prayers. We have assembled this page to make that video available to the community.
