The biggest Adopt-A-Soldier local event of the year is planned for Saturday, August 4 at Martin Park in Sturgeon Bay. The all-volunteer organization sends care packages to local troops serving all around the world. Director Nancy Hutchinson says she is appreciative of the community support that is given.
Hutchinson began the Door County Adopt-A-Soldier program eleven years ago and expanded into Kewaunee County. Over $10,000 is spent every year shipping packages to about 193 servicemen and women from Door and Kewaunee counties.
