The Door County YMCA is celebrating their 30th annual community appreciation breakfast on Valentines Day. Tom Beernsten, CEO of the Door County YMCA, says that these breakfasts serve multiple purposes. First, it shows appreciation to the community for their support and memberships. The event also serves as an avenue to showcase plans for the next year. The big news this year is a $23,000 grant for character development programs. Beernsten says that Door County is one of the few YMCA’s across the country to receive the grant.
Beernsten adds that Dr. Tasha Nicole Johnson, Senior Director of the Character Development Project, will speak at the event regarding the grant. The breakfast will be held February 14th, at 8:30 AM at Stone Harbor Resort. There is no cost to attend, but Beernsten asks that you call the Door County YMCA to reserve your spot.
