SCOTTVILLE — The Scottville Optimist Club donated $460 towards the school safety campaign to purchase The Boot door security devices Wednesday during its regular weekly meeting. Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole attended the meeting and reported on the progress of the campaign. He said to date, installation is complete at Mason County Eastern Schools, Covenant Christian School, Ludington Area Catholic School and Oak Tree Academy. Installations are also completed at Mason County Central’s Scottville Elementary and Scottville Upper Elementary with the remainder of the schools scheduled. MCC’s Victory Early Childhood Development was the first building to be completed back in June before the county-wide fund raising campaign began.

The campaign has raised $81,000 to date, with $137,310 needed. Cole said an additional $37,000 has been pledged by individuals and businesses. Once $100,000 has been reached, the Lockdown Company, makers of The Boot, has committed to complete installation in all area secondary and elementary school buildings, Cole said.

Those wishing to donate, may write a check to the Friends of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, c/o Community Foundation for Mason County, PO Box 10, Ludington, MI 49431. Note in the memo line: Adopt A Door.
