Hechts celebrated as Sister Bay's volunteer of the year

Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht wishes many of you could have sat with him during Saturday’s Fall Fest parade. Hecht and his wife Liz were honored by the Sister Bay Advancement Association as this year’s volunteers of the year. The Hechts were instrumental in the county’s response to the pandemic last year. Through the Door County Fire Chiefs Association and the Door County Emergency Support Coalition, over 700 people contributed more than 11,000 hours of community service doing everything from passing out food and distributing vaccines to dropping off groceries and doing well-being checks. Serving others has grown organically for the Hechts during their 30-plus years of living in Sister Bay. Hecht says he is humbled to receive the award, but knows his recognition is due to the work of so many others.

As the SBAA Volunteers of the Year, the Hechts served as the parade marshals for this year’s 75th annual Fall Fest parade. Hecht called this year’s crowd among the biggest he has ever seen.
