(Beaver Dam) The Moraine Park Foundation will be able to award 15 scholarships thanks to the success of the 2019 Ledge Games. The family-friendly competition, held in Eden, challenges participants in a series of lumberjack activities such as caber toss, hammer toss, archery, keg toss, speed chop and axe throw. Director of College Advancement at Moraine Park Dana Bourland says it is an honor to have the support from this popular community event. She says the contributions directly benefit the local manufacturing economy and their students have a greater opportunity for success. In total, the event raised $7,500. One hundred percent of the proceeds support the Ledge Games scholarship which focuses on engineering, manufacturing, and technology programs at MPTC.
