Spring is a time to give back to the community and during the 5th Annual Sweet Spring Marketplace Show on March 11th and 12th at the Montgomery County Fairground, we will be accepting nonperishable food and household items to help support The Foodbank of Dayton/ Miami Valley. It provides the infrastructure for more than 100 member food pantries, community kitchens, and shelters that serve in Montgomery, Green and Preble Counties. A great cause for the wonderful communities and a special way to show some love! We look forward to our fifth year helping support The Foodbank of Dayton/Miami Valley. We are hoping to exceed last year to make it the best year!


There will be fun games & drawings at the Enter to Win Booth. If you bring a nonperishable food item you will receive a chance to spin Esther’s Wheel of Fun or Daisy Drop (plinko). Everyone is a winner!

There are also drawings at the Enter To Win Booth that will be every hour and sometimes every half hour from items donated by our exhibitors . You will receive an entry form when you arrive to take to the Enter to Win booth. Names will be announced and you need to be present to win.

It has been 2 years since my husband, Dean Mengert passed and not a day goes by that I don’t miss him. He was strong, brave and fought lung cancer for over 7 years. His love was strong and he would move mountains to make sure that all Cloud Production events were fun for all. He would drive my truck and trailers (with the help of some friends) to all the shows, so I had all my extra special details to decorate the shows. He would fix small problems when power was not working in a booth, make sure I didn’t forget to eat during the day or just tell a corny joke to make people smile during set-up and tear down. Dean never knew a

stranger and built so many friendships with the vendors over the years that it made it fun for him to catch up with everyone over the weekends. Bigger than life and full of love for the family and me. Don’t take a day for granted. Tell someone you love them.
