Donna White, Iron Dog from Wisconsin honored for her years of snowmobile advocacy

Donna White, Iron Dog from Wisconsin, received an honor this weekend. We're hoping to get more information from her to publish to our members. Whatever it was, it was well deserved. The following is what was on the plaque Donna received.
In 1973 Donna helped her local club become incorporated as The Moonlighters, Inc. In 1993 she became Columbia County AWSC Director. After 8 years as a dedicated director she moved up into the state level as Vice President; then in 2002 was elected the first AWSC woman President. Her work with communication, safety, sound, and scholarships were priorities. Donna also served in all offices of the ACSA's Midwest Chapter and on the Governor's Snowmobile Recreation Council for 18 years. She was inducted into the Iron Dog Brigade in 2004. Her concern for the future of snowmobiling and serivce at local, state and international levels are why she was inducted into the International Snowmobile Hall of Fame in 2016. COLUMBIA COUNTY IS THANKFUL FOR ALL SHE HAS DONE.
The park is named Harold LaJuene Memorial Park; it was dedicated in 2009 to honor those in Columbia County who have made significant contribution to snowmobiling. It is right on the snowmobile trail; adjacent to the Ice Trail and our snowmobile bridge that replaced the old floating bridge that crosses the historic Portage Canal. The little park can be enjoyed year round and provides some important county snowmobile information.
Donna says the award was for "being an old timer involved in snowmobiling". She was involved in the local club back in the late 60s but then got more involved and incorporated the club in1973. This was the same year we were the first to get snowmobile registration money to help fund a public trail on private property actually connecting two counties. Just the beginning of many more hard worked for accomplished challenges.
