Swing-a-Thon Raises Over $2,000

Swingers at Shepherd of the Bay Church in Sister Bay raised $2,200 in a 24-hour Swing-a-Thon to benefit the Door County Habitat for Humanity. “We really had a great turnout for a first-year event,” said Jane Burress, director of youth and family ministries at the church and on-site supervisor for the event. “Everyone likes to swing. Our Youngest was an infant and our oldest an 85-year-old woman. People are already talking about next year.” The swinging started at 6 a.m. July 24 and ended at 6 a.m. July 25.
