Holiday joy reigns in condensed holiday event

What is usually a daylong venture for law enforcement officers and local families in need in Door County was shrunk down over the weekend, but it still carried the same impact. Members of the Door County Sheriff’s Department, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and Sturgeon Bay Police Department visited 32 families on Saturday to continue an 18-year tradition. Instead of taking kids out into the field to cut a tree before going shopping, law enforcement officers brought the holiday spirit to them. Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard admits they lost out on a lot of interaction time due to this year’s safety precautions, but says it was important to still offer an altered version of it this year.

Sternard thanks the community for their support for the program, which she says has helped forged lifelong friendships with the officers and some of the lives they have touched during the event’s history.
