A conversation concerning the return of a K-9 unit to the area marked the beginning of a relationship between the Door County Sheriff’s Department and the Door County Community Foundation. It sparked the development of the Door County Crime Prevention Foundation, which has already raised lots of money for the K-9 unit and could spur the development of other law-enforcement initiatives. Door County Community Foundation President and CEO Bret Bicoy says the project is an example of how a conversation can make an impact.
The community foundation hosted dozens of conversations over the last year and will culminate Tuesday evening at Hope United Church of Christ in Sturgeon Bay with the Final Report of Discuss Door County: Growing Older in Door County. The reception begins at 5 p.m. alongside artwork from local artists.
