Wisconsin Governors found Door County escapes

Although Jacksonport is a small town, it can claim to have three governors of Wisconsin who still have strong family roots to Door County.  The Jacksonport Historical Society is hosting a special program next month that features members of the Reynolds, Lucey and Doyle families sharing memories of their times in Jacksonport.  Paul Lucey, the son of the late Governor Pat Lucey will be one of four presenters.  He says the family has been coming up every year to their Jacksonport cottage in the summers since 1957.



Lucey will be a panelist along with Molly Reynolds and her first cousin Kay Noel and Governor Jim Doyle’s sister, Catey Doyle.  The “Jacksonport:  Great Escape for Governors and Their Families” program will be held at the Jacksonport Town Hall starting at 7 pm on Thursday, September 12.
