Welcome to Deerwood!
The Deerwood Civic and Commerce exists to meet the diverse and ever-changing needs of its membership and to promote the growth and economic prosperity of the greater Deerwood area. Through constant leadership and commitment we strive to help Deerwood continue to develop with active residents who take pride in shaping their community's future.
2024 Outdoor & Gun Show and Summerfest events will not be held. The handful of current, dedicated volunteers determined they cannot realistically produce events while planning for the future of Deerwood Civic and Commerce.
Instead of working “in” the organization, volunteers will work “on” developing leadership capacity and capabilities. Requests for donations from area community groups are encouraged and will continue to be considered.
Next steps include creating a business/community group/civic Task Force by January 1, 2024 to develop a concrete leadership plan that will 1) seat Board Members, 2) recruit Event Committee Chairpersons, and 3) identify an adequate roster of Event Committee Volunteers.
Task Force work will be completed by September 1, 2024.
