The family of the late Dean R. Peach recently made a $1,000 donation to the Kewanee Schools Foundation in support of the Kewanee Schools golf program.  Peach was an avid golfer and enjoyed golfing every day that the course was open, and he played in many of the local tournaments.  Peach passed away January 14, 2021. Additionally, the family of May Watson donated a set of golf clubs for Kewanee golf athletes.
