The Kewaunee Grandfather Clock got a literal face lift last week and will be moved to a storage facility on Wednesday.
Jason Jelinek, who’s been the main organizer in relocating the clock, says they removed the face, dials and other mechanical parts in preparation for the move.
Over the winter Jelinek and other volunteers will work to restore the 30-40% of the clock that has rotted over the years.
Jelinek says the slowest part of the relocation process has been fundraising. The group plans to build a pavilion at the new clock site near the skate park to provide structural support for the 35-foot-tall clock. Donations can be made to the City of Kewaunee, which is keeping track of the funds raised to move the clock.
