MEARS — Representatives from Smith & Eddy Insurance and Fremont Insurance showed up at the Scottville Clown Band concert at Silver Lake Tuesday, July 27, to present $2,000 to the band’s endowment fund. 

“Both Fremont Insurance and Smith & Eddy Insurance are committed to the communities we serve,” said Scott Smith, president of Smith & Eddy Insurance,  based in Scottville. “The Scottville Clown Band and Smith & Eddy are two of the oldest entities in Scottville, Smith & Eddy was started in 1902 and the Clown Band began in 1903. We are proud to share our heritage with this great organization.”

The Scottville Clown Band’s George F. Wilson Memorial Endowment Fund was created to serve the band’s Raymond Schulte Memorial Scholarship Program, which provides scholarships for middle school and high school performing arts students to attend summer programs. Since the late 1960s, the band has given away over $600,000 in scholarships. 

Donations may be sent to Scottville Clown Band Endowment, Community Foundation for Mason County, PO Box 10, Ludington, MI 49431 or directly to the Scottville Clown Band, PO Box 21, Scottville, MI 49454.
