What Happened in Door County?

• The Town of Baileys Harbor voted to provisionally allow a prospective Wisconsin State Football League team to use the Baileys Harbor Recreational Park as its home field. At the town’s Oct. 8 meeting, representatives from the team that hopes to be known as the Door County Destroyers asked the board if they could play their home games in Baileys Harbor.

Provided the team clears the league’s process for establishing new teams and insurance matters work out, the Door County Destroyers could start playing semi-professional football games in Baileys Harbor as of next July. The Wisconsin State Football League is currently made up of seven teams from throughout the state.

• Barbara Cammack stepped down from her position on the Egg Harbor Village Board of Trustees because of a change in residence. The board will discuss possible replacements at future meetings.

• A group of community members attended a public meeting on Oct. 9 at the Door Community Auditorium to explore the concept of Write On, Door County!, an initiative to facilitate and promote writing in Door County.

Jarod Santek, program director of The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, MN, discussed The Loft’s journey and offerings, what he has learned from other writing centers, and took questions from audience members.

Following the presentation, an open discussion was held in the Fireside Lobby where community members exchanged ideas about their vision for Write On, Door County!
