The Door County Historical Society will host its monthly dinner meeting featuring a presentation on Renard’s Cheese by Ann Renard on Oct. 26. The catered dinner meeting will be at 6 pm at Brussels Community Center/Town Hall.
Renard’s Cheese was founded in 1961 by Howard Renard and remains a family-owned and operated local business. Chris is a Master Cheesemaker and together Chris and Ann are continuing the family tradition. Since 2010 the business has grown from four employees to 64 employees. At present, they are building the foundation for their future growth, which includes a new factory in two years.
Both Chris and Ann find it important to remain active in the community through educational partnerships, fundraising partnerships and campaigns; and at the same time remain a strong viable business that offers stable jobs with competitive wages. Southern Door County remains a strong agricultural area, where community members take pride in the product they produce. Chris and Ann are proud to be proud of this community.
Brussels Countryside Diner will cater the dinner held at Brussels Community Center/Town Hall (1366 Junction Road, Corner of Junction Road and County Road DK, in front of the Town Park). The dinner includes broasted chicken, pot roast, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, gravy, rolls, salad, desserts and coffee. A cash bar is available. The fee for guests is $24, and $20 for members.
