Meet Culver park’s new activities director

After much planning and discussion over the past year or more, Culver's parks and recreation department now boasts a programming director, in addition to the role of park superintendent Kelly Young.

Already on the job and conceiving programs, activities, and events is Donna McKee, who arrived in Culver seveen years ago along with her family when husband David's job relocated them from Michigan. The McKees have two sons, Dylan (3rd grade) and Derek (1st grade) in the Culver Elementary School, who Donnas says "keep me very active."

Many in the Culver area are already familiar with the family from the array of roles they've taken on in the community.

Donna McKee has been involved with the Cub Scouts for the past three years as Cubmaster Assistant, activities director and den leader.

She's also been on the Culver Little League board for the past two years. Dave McKee has been active in the community as a volunteer firefighter and a member of the VFW 6919 Men's Auxillary in Culver.

"I enjoy helping many different organizations in our town including helping out most days at Culver Elementary School," notes Donna. "I hope, with my experiences and enthusiasm, that the park programming activities developed will be enjoyed by everyone in our community."

The Culver Park Department hosted an open house February 23, where residents met and welcomed McKee to the program director position.

"I am looking forward to meeting with the great people of Culver," she adds. "I just want to...thank Kelly Young and the park board for giving me this opportunity as the Parks and Recreation (programming) director."
