Community of the Year

On April 11, 2016 The Village of Downs was awarded the HERO Award for Community of the Year by the H.E.A.L. Foundation (Heroes Embracing Autistic Lives) for its fundraising and efforts to promote autism awareness.  18+ volunteers spent 12 weeks preparing for this fundraiser/benefit held at Adkissons Restaurant August of 2015.   It was a huge success and raised over $8,500 for this great foundation to honor the memory and goals of Jon Miskulin.

The Village of Downs is humbled to be recognized as Community of the Year, honored to be able to promote and support the H.E.A.L. Foundation, and grateful and blessed to have community volunteers that give tirelessly to noble causes such as this.     

Thank you to the HEAL Foundation for recognizing the Village of Downs.
