President Obama, Britain's PM coming to Dayton, Ohio



President Barack Obama will be making his first visit Tuesday to Dayton as commander-in-chief.

The White House announced Thursday that Obama will be bringing David Cameron, prime minister of the United Kingdom, with him to the University of Dayton Arena to take in a NCAA First Four basketball game, the first step to the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

“I think it’s great. He is a huge a basketball fan,” City Commissioner Nan Whaley said. “Even he knows that Dayton is a huge basketball town.”

When told the White House had confirmed the visit, Catherine Petersen, Montgomery County communications director, was ecstatic.

“How fantastic for our area that the president of the United States is coming to the First Four at the University of Dayton Arena.”


This is great news for Dayton!

2. I Am Exhausting Every Option Trying To Find A Way To Be Able To Attend...

I am a 22 year old college student and I reside in Darke County, Ohio which is less than 40 minutes from Dayton, and I so desperately want to be a part of this once in a lifetime event, yet unfortunately I am not having much luck in my quest to attend this event.

My car is actually in a repair shop right now to address mechanical problems. It is just my luck that President Obama would come to my neighborhood the week I am without transportaion.

I dont intend to give up hope that I may be able to go...

Any Advice?

3. My sister said there are $2,000 tickets left.

As of this morning. Once the teams are selected ...they will sell out.
