Unity and a focus on the future were the themes of the day, as the Village of Egg Harbor and Door County Library officially cut the ribbon to the Donald and Carol Kress Pavilion on Saturday morning. Librarian Holly Cole started the event with a story of a community coming together to build a library, with speeches by Door County Library Director Tina Kakuske, Nicolet Federated Library System Director Tracy Vreeke, Wisconsin Library Association Executive Director Plumer Lovelace, and Donald Kress. Kress says he didn’t donate the money to have his name on a building, but to see the joy the building will bring to the community.
Village Administrator Ryan Heise also spoke at the event, documenting how the community came together to make this idea into reality. For full video coverage, click the video below.
