New Scoreboard May Be On Horizon
– Local Companies Offer To Donate New LED Scoreboard To School

Dennis Butz of Smith and Hatch Insurance is looking forward to the new school building and athletic facilities coming to Kewaskum.

So he approached Jason Piittmaan, athletic director for the school district. Piittmaan directed Butz to Daktronics, a sports marketing company that creates scoreboards.
