Leadership Dawson plans Visitors Center park

Visitors Center park to be located at the Dawson County Welcome Center

Leadership Dawson, a program of the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce, has announced plans to build a new Visitors Center park at the Dawson County Welcome Center. The park will feature a Walk of Honor, gazebo, tourism/brochure info, park benches, dog walk and a free library.

Leadership Dawson is funding the project with the sale of bricks that will be part of the Walk of Honor. The 4”x 8” bricks which cost $100 can be engraved with three lines of text (18 characters including spaces per line) to honor family, friends, church, business, favorite cause, an organization or in memoriam for a special person.

The Dawson County Chamber of Commerce sponsors Leadership Dawson to empower citizens to lead within Dawson County by providing relevant educational programs. Through a retreat, interactive activities, presentations, discussions and work sessions, the program seeks to inspire participants to become involved with the community.
