Scottville clown bandSCOTTVILLE — The Scottville Clown Band will perform on its home stage tonight (weather permitting). The 7 p.m. concert is part of the weekly Scottville Clown Band Shell Tuesday night series, a tradition that began when the shell was built in 1989.

In the case of rain, the concert will be held at A.O. Carlson Auditorium at Mason County Central High School.

Tonight’s concert is a fundraiser for the Scottville Optimist Club, which operates the shell jointly with the Clown Band. Optimist members will be selling brats and hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy, caramel corn, snow cones and pop. A collection will also be held. The Optimist Club’s mission is to support local youth.

Prior to the concert, the Scottville Fire Department will hold fire safety demonstrations from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Optimist club parking lot, near the band shell.

The Scottville Optimist Club has invited the Scottville Fire Department to demonstrate fire safety on Tuesday – August 18th from 4pm to 6pm at the Scottville Optimist Hall behind West Shore Bank.

The fire department’s displays will include a smoke trailer, where kids can learn what to do in case of fire in their house. Kids will also be able to squirt water from fire hoses and play games. The Optimist popcorn wagon will be open during this time.

The decision to move the venue to the high school will be made by 3 p.m.
