Belgian Days Screens “Wisconsin Hometown Stories: Door County”

There will be a special screening at Belgian Days of the new Wisconsin Hometown Stories: Door County, a Wisconsin Public Television original documentary that brings Door County history to life. The screening will be held July 10 at 1:30 pm at the Brussels Community Center. The one-hour program includes the story of the unique Belgian settlement in southern Door County. Representatives from WPT will be there to answer questions about the production, as well as Barb (Englebert) Chisholm who will explain her participation in the project.

A five-minute clip of the WPT Wisconsin Life episode: “Books on the Bus” that first aired in October 2015 will also be presented. This program, started by Southern Door native and bus driver Ted Chaudoir, has been replicated across the country and received numerous awards and recognition, including most recently at the White House in May. Chaudoir and Southern Door Reading Specialist Missy Bousley will be there to speak about the local and national impact of this program.

The Brussels Community Center is located at 1366 Junction Road, Brussels.
