Why Give to the Dexter Community Fund?
As Dexter grows, we want to maintain the qualities that make our community a special place to live and work, while providing a means to invest in future opportunities to make Dexter even stronger and more vibrant.
Why We Love Dexter
Dexter is a special place. Those of us who are fortunate to call the Dexter area home are deeply committed to our community. Dexter has a small town charm with local businesses and families who have deep roots here. It is also a vibrant community with a thriving downtown, and residents share an appreciation for the arts and nature. With the Huron River meandering through town, many local parks, and the Border-to-Border Trail, Dexter residents have many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Dexter Community Schools rank among the best in the State and are known for outstanding academics, music, sports, and extracurricular programs. From young families to seniors, the Dexter area is a wonderful place to call home.
Community Projects Promise to Keep Dexter Vibrant
With a deep appreciation for our past, Dexter also looks to the future. Efforts underway to refurbish Gordon Hall will ensure that this local landmark is preserved for future generations. The newly completed Mill Creek Boardwalk and Border-to-Border trail enhance recreational opportunities for all to enjoy the scenic beauty of our community. New fitness facility options will help to keep our community healthy. Additionally, with numerous restaurants downtown, new event spaces, the Encore Theater, and new businesses joining the existing strong core, our community is committed to investing locally.
A Strong Sense of Community
There is a strong sense of community here. Traditions and celebrations such as the Memorial Day Parade, Dexter Daze, summer concerts at the gazebo, July 4th reworks at Hudson Mills, Apple Daze, Webster Fall Festival, and the Holiday Hustle bring us together to enjoy and celebrate with friends and neighbors. Dexter is a caring community where neighbors pitch in to help one another in times of need. Memories of the 2012 tornado bring to mind the out-pouring of community support. Neighbors helping neighbors to clean up, providing food, planting trees, and providing monetary donations to help those in need.
