The Door County Community Foundation has awarded Leadership Door County a Sustainability Grant from the Clifford and Clara Herlache Heritage Foundation. This grant will support activities for Leadership Door County’s session devoted to the history of Door County. History Day acquaints class members with an overview of Door County history and some of the organizations and community leaders who convey historical knowledge. The day’s activities are chosen to help class members more fully understand immigration patterns and economic activity.
“During History Day, Leadership Door County class members are exposed to a variety of resources and speakers that help them understand the vast history of our county,” said Marcia Smith, vice chair of the Door County Community Foundation. “This is a critical session for the beginning of the class year as it provides a foundation of the other sessions and topics that will be covered throughout the year.”
Leadership Door County brings together community members who have diverse viewpoints to become stronger leaders and to understand community issues through experiential education.
