Our hats go off to West Shore Bank for a successful and entertaining second annual Rhythm & Dunes concert series. Saturday night’s beach night featuring Son of a Sailor Jimmy Buffet tribute band and opening act, Ludington-based Groove 101, entertained a crowd some are estimating as high as 4,000 at Ludington Waterfront Park. Last Saturday’s performance of the Glenn Miller Orchestra fell a little short with crowd numbers, but only because Mother Nature decided to take a break from summer. Other than that, the music was top notch and was worth toughing out-of-season temperatures.

In this day and age of bank mergers and branch office reductions it’s encouraging to see our local bank step up and go above and beyond.  West Shore Bank’s roots are deep in Mason County. It started in the late 1800s as the State Savings Bank of Scottville, a name that it held until the 1990s. While it is no longer based in Scottville, it still holds its responsibilities to each community it serves seriously.

Thank you West Shore Bank for giving our community a great night out!
