When the COVID-19 pandemic canceled their annual tournament trip to the Wisconsin Dells, members of the Gibraltar/Washington Island baseball team could only think of one place where the money should go.
The team donated $1,500 to the Door County Fire Chiefs Association and $500 to efforts on Washington Island as communities across the country address the needs of their residents. Gibraltar senior baseball player Brandon Stillman says the money they raised was a sign of support from the community for their team. He believes it was only right to donate it back.
The donations came a day after the Gibraltar Area School Board unanimously approved canceling in-person classroom and extracurricular activities for the rest of the school year.
