A new center for community

The new Doniphan Area Events Center, seen here, recently

The smaller of two meeting rooms in the brand-new Doniphan Area Event Center was bathed in sunlight pouring in from large windows with a southern exposure. In fact, there was so much sunlight that the puzzle table had to be moved back a little bit from the windows.

“It’s very open,” Hoskins said. “We can see the cars going, and we like that.”
