Do Good Door County links local goals to cinema classic

A movie released in 1951 might give you an idea of the themes Do Good Door County are chasing locally. Formed in 2021, the organization has found out that many people within the community would like to age in place, which means having more in-home care rather than assisted living. Cynthia Germain, President of Do Good Door County says there are a lot of connections between the movie "The African Queen" and what they are trying to accomplish locally.

 

 

Katharine Hepburn, plays a religious spinster, whose missionary brother is killed in WW1 Africa. The main way to get supplies is through a boat called the African Queen, Humphrey Bogart, plays the captain who tries to help her to safety, the two spend most of their time arguing and eventually fall in love.  Do Good Door County is hosting a screening of the movie to help raise funds for the organization.
