CENTERVILLE, OH: Take advantage of every ray of sunlight as the northern hemisphere prepares for the fewest hours of daylight — the first day of winter on Saturday, December 21! Meet staff from the Centerville-Washington Park District and the Washington-Centerville Public Library at Bill Yeck Park at 7:45 a.m. to experience the beauty of the first day of winter. Be there as the sun welcomes the new season over the prairies.
