Membership in northern Door County service organizations continues to be a concern after one announced it would cease operations after 50 years. The Kiwanis Club of Northern Door County disbanded earlier this week, citing dwindling membership as its cause. The news came as a shock to Sister Bay Lions Club President Leroy Schramm, who oversees the organization’s over 60 members. Schramm says many organizations are struggling to recruit new members.
Schramm credits some of their family-friendly events like the kids boat making tent at Marina Fest for getting younger people interested in what the Sister Bay Lions do and the impact they have in the community.
