PREVIEW: Watertown man sets up free beverage cooler for neighbors

Local News

WATERTOWN, S.D. (KELO) — A story or report is often highlighted by the people you meet when covering it.

A Watertown man has set up a free beverage cooler for those biking or running past his house.

Earl Baumgarn spends most of his mornings on his driveway, watching people go by on the Watertown bike trail. To help keep them hydrated, he set out a cooler filled with free drinks for anyone to take.

“Watertown has about 37 miles of the jogging trails in Watertown here. And this is our secret. This is the only one,” Baumgarn said.

There’s a reason Earl chose a water cooler to reach out to his neighbors. We’ll have the details on that for you later tonight.
