A prominent Sister Bay resident has been honored with the 2022 Volunteer of the Year award. The Sturgeon Bay Advancement Association (SBAA) recognized Ron Kane as the Parade Marshall of the 76th Annual Fall Festival Parade earlier this month. He was driven through the parade by his longtime friend and collaborator, Steve Mann. SiBAA Executive Director Louise Howson says Ron is always ready to help anyone or any organization.
Having been active in government and tourism-related efforts for the village over the past 40 years, Kane has served on the Board of Directors of the Sister Bay Historical Society and volunteered at the weekly Farmer’s Market. A past president and board member of the SBAA, Ron ran the Door County Festival of Fine Arts for many years. Currently, he serves as a Sister Bay Plan Commission member and on the Visitor Center staff. The SBAA will be contributing to Feed and Clothe My People of Door County in the name of Ron Kane.
