Donald Beautification Group

DBG's mission statement: to keep Donald a great place for families to live, friends to visit and businesses to thrive. 

The Donald Beautification Group (DBG) is a volunteer group of residents and business members. Membership is open to anyone and the DBG is always looking for more people to join; feel free to pop-in at your convenience. The DBG is modeled after the Oregon Main Street Program.
