The purpose of the Donald L. Heiter Community Center is to operate a multi-purpose community center in the Lewisburg area that serves all age groups, is locally controlled, frugally managed and representative of a wide variety of community interests. We provide a safe place for people to go and have good, clean fun.
The Donald L. Heiter Community Center began in August 1993. The established Lewisburg Area Community Center was renamed for local police chief Donald L. Heiter, who had a heart for youth and was instrumental in starting the center. The community center began with individuals from the community forming a Board in order to develop an environment where local youth could interact responsibly. The Board also was interested in utilizing this source as an intergenerational community organization. This led to the DHCC having various programs for all ages. The DHCC is a valued community resource.
