The Berachah Valley band has been a bluegrass staple in our area for over 17 years. Troy’s downtown concert series, “Fridays on Prouty” will be bringing them back again in 2022 with a new show! This classic band was asked to be the sound of bluegrass for the movie “Mayberry Man.” The movie is a recreation of the beloved Andy Griffith Show which takes place in Mayberry, USA. The experience was an exciting time for the band. They were part of the touring variety show that traveled the country promoting the movie.
On August 12, 2022 at 7:30 pm they will share the variety show and movie with Troy, Ohio. Berachah Valley will play favorites from the movie, the cast will be on hand with jokes and stories. A showing of the movie Mayberry Man will begin about 9 pm after the concert and variety show. This fun-packed night honoring Berachah Valley bluegrass band and their new movie is free to the public. Reservations are not necessary. Bring a lawn chair, your best friend and plenty of good wishes for Berachah Valley.

For 51 years, Dorothy Stebbins has measured precipitation (rain, snow, sleet & hail) 365 days a year for the Miami Conservancy District’s (MCD) Precipitation Observer Network. Dorothy is one of 42 citizen observers that has been a rock star for MCD. Dorothy has faithfully performed this work for the benefit of the region. The data that Dorothy and the other observers collect helps the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) with forecasting floods and assessing changes to weather patterns, including droughts.
MCD’s manager of water resource monitoring and data analysis, Mike Ekberg, and general manager, MaryLynn Lodor, visited Dorothy and her son Dan Stebbins today alongside the rain gage that she has used to record precipitation all these years. She was honored by Senator Matt Huffman, and Senator Stephan Huffman, with a proclamation for her outstanding public service. She was also gifted MCD’s “A Flood of Memories” coffee table book, and given a big thank you for her service. Dorothy recalled stories, passed down from her grandparents and parents, about surviving the 1913 flood and having to seek higher ground.
In 1998, the Dayton Daily News featured a story on Dorothy when she had served as an observer for more than 20 years. Dorothy framed the article and shared it with Mike and MaryLynn when they delivered MCD’s gifts of thanks today.
At 96 years old, MCD is honored to welcome Dorothy into retirement as she passes the observer responsibilities to her son. This maintains the family legacy, and will ensure that the data continues to benefit the region.
MCD’s vision is to have thriving communities, a healthy watershed and a higher quality of life, sustained by well-managed water resources throughout the watershed. MCD’s mission is to protect lives, property and economic vitality within the Great Miami River Watershed through an integrated and balanced system that provides unfailing flood protection, preserves water resources, and promotes enjoyment of our waterways.
