Lifetime Achievement Award winner Shefchik credits community

One week after being surprised and honored by the Volunteer Center of Door County’s Karl May Lifetime Achievement Award, Fran Shefchik wants people to know the impact the community has had on him and his family.  Receiving the award named after Karl May, brought special meaning to Shefchik some 40 years after moving to Sturgeon Bay.



Shefchik, who is currently board chair of the Boys and Girls Club of Door County and a member of the Sturgeon Bay Breakfast Rotary Club, says volunteering has always been about giving back to the community he loves.



Shefchik retired three years ago from Portside Builders in Sturgeon Bay, a company he founded.  Corpus Christi Church was Shefchik’s first venture into volunteering 37 years ago when he was the finance manager for the parish.
