Volunteers from all of our communities here in Newaygo County provide countless hours of service that help make the Dogwood Center the strong cultural resource that it is. This past year alone over 50 community members have helped with fundraising, ticket sales, technical needs, as ushers and greeters……all of the components necessary in providing such a wonderful venue.
The Don Heaven Volunteer of the Year Award is given annually to the volunteer whose service, dedication, and commitment embodies the Dogwood Center’s spirit. This award is dedicated to Don Heaven, the consummate Dogwood volunteer. Since the inception of the Dogwood Center, Don has worked tirelessly to make it not only a reality but also an excellent asset to Newaygo County.
