Residents and visitors will soon learn about what it means to grow older in the area when the Door County Community Foundation concludes its months-long journey with a forum on May 9. “Growing Older in Door County” was an initiative started by the foundation to get people of different ages and backgrounds together to talk about the future they want for their community. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy says during the many listening and sharing sessions, people expressed their desire to stay connected with one another.
Interested poets and artists can submit their pieces for the “Growing Older In Door County” report that will be released in conjunction with the forum. As an award for being chosen, the Door County Community Foundation will donate $250 to the charity of the artist’s choice and put the pieces on display.
