Local Coast Guard honors still coming

Though many of the activities surrounding the annual celebration are canceled, the Sturgeon Bay community still plans on honoring its local Coast Guard members. Sturgeon Bay Maritime Week usually takes place at the beginning of August to coincide with the Coast Guard’s birthday on August 4th. Events like the golf outing, picnic, and parade were canceled because of local and Coast Guard restrictions surrounding COVID-19. Door County Maritime Museum Deputy Director Sam Perlman says despite these cancellations, Sturgeon Bay is still Wisconsin’s Coast Guard City.

The museum has canceled its Classic and Wooden Boat Show and Sikaflex Challenge for 2020, but Perlman says they will still honor their Coast Guard Person of the Year and Mariner’s Award recipients virtually at the beginning of August.
