DAYTON-After six and a half years of employment, Tamara Fritze has left the Dayton Historical Depot Society to pursue other interests. During her time as the Depot Museum Director, Fritze created many interesting exhibits and newsletters sharing her wealth of knowledge about local history. The Society is grateful for her years of dedicated service and wishes her well in her future endeavors. Shellie McLeod will take over the responsibilities of this role.

McLeod was hired as Events Manager for the Depot in March of 2020. Before a successful year of coordinating (mostly virtual) events, she was the co-owner and operator of The Weinhard Hotel in Dayton for 12 years with her husband, Gary McLeod. McLeod has deep roots in the community. She grew up on a farm on the North Touchet, then raised her two children in Dayton. Over the years, McLeod has served on the board of directors for Touchet Valley Arts Council, Blue Mountain Heritage Society, and Dayton Chamber of Commerce. Her community involvement and experience in hospitality management make her an excellent fit for this position.
