This week on ReInvention Stories we meet Shane Anderson, owner of Ghostlight Coffee on Wayne Avenue in Dayton's South Park neighborhood.
In high school, Anderson dreamed of becoming a band director, which, he did. Anderson was a band director and music teacher for fourteen years. Most of that time was spent at Miami East High School and Vandalia-Butler High School. But he had another dream, of one day running a coffee shop. And he wanted to quit teaching before getting too burnt out.
Two local communities have been recognized for their work to preserve local landmarks. The Ohio Historical Society has honored Jamestown and Wilberforce for their efforts to rehab and preserve two local landmarks.
Sixteen honorees from 14 communities throughout the state were recognized recently in two categories for their achievement in historic preservation.
A Preservation Merit Award was given to the Jamestown Area Historical Society, the Greene County Commissioners and the Silvercreek Township Trustees for their work in rehabbing the Jamestown Opera House.
