Scottville Clown Band Shell to launch 30th season on June 11.

SCOTTVILLE — The Scottville Clown Band Shell is observing its 30th year this summer. Its summer concert series is the longest consecutive running free summer series in Mason County.

The shell was built in 1989 by volunteers and funds from the Scottville Clown Band, Scottville Optimist Club, and the Scottville Chamber of Commerce. It was an initiative started by Tom VanBuren, who was president of State Savings Bank of Scottville (now West Shore Bank) with the goal of bringing free local music to Scottville.

Efforts are underway by the Scottville Downtown Development Authority to renovate the shell, and the grounds it sits on, along with renovations of the adjacent Scottville Optimist Center.

The Scottville Clown Band Shell is a joint effort by the Scottville Clown Band and the Scottville Optimist Club. It relies on donations from the public. Donations may be sent to Scottville Clown Band Shell, PO Box 21, Scottville, MI 49454.

All performances are on Tuesdays and start at 7 p.m., unless indicated.
