Kewaunee County To Donate Grandfather Clock to City of Kewaunee

 

After the City of Kewaunee approved a new home site for the Kewaunee Grandfather Clock, the city council had to ask that Kewaunee County donate the clock to the city.

Since the county bought the Top of the Hill Shop, the clock is county property. Kewaunee Public Property Committee Chair Brenda LuMaye says the county agreed to donate the clock to the city in a letter on Thursday. The next step is raising the funds to move and install the clock near the skate park.

Jason Jelinek, who has organized a group supporting the move, says they have about $2,500 already and are hoping to keep costs under $10,000 by recruiting volunteers.

The group presented a sketch to the Kewaunee City Council of what they visualize for the project. LuMaye hopes that once the project is finished the clock will bring more people into the downtown area.

“It’s just a clock,” says Jelinek, “but to get everyone together in support of something…it’s just a good thing.”
