    Meet Fig Contributor

    Debbie Dawson

    As a recent transplant to Lancaster from the Midwest, Debbie embraces her new city, explores it daily, and seeks all the goodness it has to offer. To help her become acquainted with Lancaster area businesses, events, restaurants, and public spaces, she challenges herself to explore at least two new places each week -- and, most weeks, she far surpasses her goal. As a FIG contributor, she's excited to have the opportunity to take her passion for Lancaster and share it with everyone, from first-time visitors to long-time Lancastrians.
