Art from the local Bright Beginnings Academy students will be on display and community members are encouraged to stop by and share their own vision for our community.

“We hope to come away with a better understanding of community priorities through these events by engaging as many individuals as we can and seeing where interest lie,” Explained Allison Berndt, Thrive Dayton volunteer.

“We have so much talent in Rhea County and we want to provide an outlet and opportunities for the expression of that talent, whether it’s painting, sculpting, poetry, or something else.”

Thriving Communities program is a community accelerator program designed to enhance leadership and community development throughout the region through creative placemaking.

SONS OF BLAKE, a revival of the group DYLAN BLAKE from the Sequatchie Valley, will bring their mix of classic rock, blues, outlaw country, folk, and some clever original tunes to Summer Nights. They will take the stage at 6 p.m.
