Egg Harbor rang in the New Year with a new place to call home. The Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion, home to Egg Harbor’s Door County Library branch and community center, had a special event New Year’s Eve to celebrate the project reaching substantial completion last Friday. With a first floor maker’s space and business center for residents and visitors to connect with and a second floor Great Hall space for special events, Village Administrator Ryan Heise says with the New Year’s Eve Party a dress rehearsal for hundreds of future events, it is time for the building to speak for itself.
The building warded off early legal challenges by local groups challenging the village’s contribution to the project to finish the building itself relatively on time. The Kress Pavilion will be officially opened on February 17 with a soft opening likely before then, according to Heise.
