Letter to the Editor: EYC Says Thanks!

Not wishing to be political, it was once said, “It takes a village” or, to paraphrase, “It takes a county with generous merchants.” Due to the generosity of the Door County merchants who donate items to Ephraim Yacht Club Aaron R. Moore Sailing Scholarship Fund, a Fund of Door County Community Foundation, Inc. and club member donations, EYC has been able to fund and provide more than 220 sailing scholarships to student residents of Door County who otherwise could not afford sailing lessons. EYC also provides support to the Gibraltar High School Sailing Team. It is humbling that many of the merchants listed below seek us out to provide a donation rather that awaiting us to solicit one. Please recognize the positive impact that results from these merchants in the development of the youth of our county by thanking and supporting these businesses.
