Dogwood Village wants to thank Lee Frame for his many years of service to our Health Center Commission, Senior Living Board and Foundation Board. Lee started volunteering on our boards in 2010 and has been a huge resource for the facility. Lee has been a strong advocate for both residents and employees and has been instrumental in providing additional services and benefits for both. At his last meeting, Lee thanked staff for their dedication, care and compassion that is shown every day to our residents. Lee is moving to Colorado and will be missed by all of us!
