Story By Shardaa Gray


EAGLE RIVER - That's thanks to the Advanced Welding Institute (AWI).

The director of Klondike Days reached out to the school asking for a donation.

The institute donated steel and labor.

A-W-I director Brian Scheid feels like it will go to a good cause.

"We felt we could donate our time and material to it just because it's a nonprofit event," said Scheid.

"And it's a good event in the winter day to get people out to."

Klondike Days will begin March second.

The institute is Wisconsin's first and only privately owned welding school.

85% of the classes are hands on training during the program.
