Greetings Family !

Last year at this time, I was able to greet with the joy of the season and with positive information regarding our new library, the Western Division of the Montgomery County Municipal Courts’ upcoming move back to Trotwood and our holiday giving/celebration activities. This year is quite different, as you all know. To say that we have had a challenging year is an understatement. However, we remain Trotwood Strong no matter what!

Despite the devastation created by the tornadoes, the City of Trotwood has continued to display a giving attitude. We were especially proud of the Trotwood community for their support of “The Holiday Help Out,” hosted by WROU 92.1 personality Faith Daniels. This year’s campaign was extra special as we provided holiday cheer to families hit by the tornadoes; select families received Thanksgiving baskets, from the donations provided. The remainder of the donations were given to The Good Neighbor House to service any needed family throughout Montgomery County. Also, the Trotwood Disaster Relief Fund distributed $50,000 to 175 Trotwood families who suffered from the tornadoes. What a blessing for all.

And finally, The City of Trotwood’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, December 7th at 4:00pm located on the Trotwood Government Center Courtyard at 3035Olive Rd. Please come out and join us for the kick off of the holiday season with many family friendly festivities including the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Claus, gifts, caroling and pictures around our Christmas tree.

We are accomplishing great things here in our city. I’m looking forward to many more great days to celebrate with you as we continue “Growing Together.”


Mary A. McDonald, Mayor
City of Trotwood, Ohio
