At the Carrollwood Cultural Center, there is a special group of people. Volunteers assist with class registration, special events, the Center’s official newsletter,   Centerpieces, and daily operations. Students also help on occasion in exchange for school community service credit. We appreciate these special people and their willingness to help spread the magic.

Thank you to our volunteers!

2013 Volunteer of the Year!

Dee Lehner

What would we do without her?   Lucky for us, we’ll never know.

Originally from Dallas, Texas, Dee is the youngest of five siblings. Married to Peter and involved in various community organizations, she is truly a shining star.

Dee was one of the Center’s first volunteers when we opened and has played an active role in several committees ever since.  She loves singing in the community choir and when asked what it is that keeps her volunteering here, she replied, “It is a very rewarding thing and you look forward to it.”

You can catch Dee and two of her close friends here at the center on Monday morning as they form a little group we like to call “the Monday Morning Ladies.”

With their charismatic bubbly personalities, they are sure to put a smile on your face.
