In the Community

It has been said that communities are constructed one entity at a time, specifically by the businesses that build them and the members who make them. We at Dawson & Wikoff Funeral Directors care about them, and one of the best ways that we can display this is by spending quality time with them. To accomplish this, we have set out to interview and be educated and informed about the many great central Illinois businesses that comprise our local communities. To be included in this In the Community interview series, please contact Dawson & Wikoff Funeral Directors Public Relations Director Chad Sparks at csparks@calvertmemorial.com. In the interim, we hope you enjoy the opportunity to learn more about our communities and the great businesses and people that work and live in them by viewing our collection of videos below.



At Dawson & Wikoff Funeral Homes, we care about your family, and we care about our community. This is more than a slogan that defines us; it is a commitment to service that drives us. For generations, Calvert Funeral Homes has worked hard to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of our communities. It is has been equally important for us to work and serve in our hometowns, making them a better place to live and raise our families. Calvert Funeral Homes is dedicated to this task by partnering with the individuals, families, and businesses in our communities and providing them with entertaining, informational, and annual events, including:

  • The Movie Screening Spectacular, which allows people from all over central Illinois to enjoy a morning of free refreshments, prize giveaways, and admission to a selected movie at local theaters.
  • The Calvert Cares Community Food Drive, a partnership with Midwest Food Bank, Radio Bloomington, and Denny's Doughnuts & Bakery, that "feeds the need" that exists throughout McLean County and its 70+ food pantries with a community collection of non-perishable food items over a 5 month period.
  • The McLean County Senior Expo, which connects over 80 businesses and organizations with more than 1,800 attendees from a 50-mile radius to a deluxe venue that offers adults of all ages free amenities and entertainment.
