Portage Township Trustee Brendan Clancy recognizes Jason Kegebein for dedication to community

PORTAGE TOWNSHIP – Portage Township Trustee Brendan Clancy recently recognized long-time Portage Township community leader Jason Kegebein for his years of service to the people of the township.
Kegebein retired as director of the South Haven unit of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Northwest Indiana after 13 years of service to devote more time to his ministry as pastor of New Hope Church of God in South Haven and to spend more time with his family.
Kegebein is now also serving as health coordinator with PATH Inc., A Positive Approach to Teen Health. The organization helps empower youth to make positive decisions.
In addition, Kegebein will continue to serve as president of the South Haven Lion’s Club.
Clancy said Kegebein has been “instrumental in providing food for Portage Township families, especially during the pandemic.”
“Jason Kegebein has strengthened partnerships between community residents, businesses and organizations for all of its members,” said Clancy, adding he has also been a steadfast partner with Portage Township Department of Parks and Recreation in raising the quality of life of community residents.
Clancy said Kegebein has “given of his time, unselfishly, for families and especially the children of Portage Township.”
“I was very, very surprised and humbled to be the recipient of the recognition,” said Kegebein, adding he dedicated the recognition to the South Haven Lions Club, Boys & Girls Club and his church. “I was taken aback, but in a positive way.”
“My heart and passion is to serve full time in my ministry,” he said, adding he will continue to serve the community, including the Boys & Girls Club.

Can trustee put pressure on realtor to keep grass cut on house for sale in South Haven?
Good Morning: I am a senior citizen who uses the Bonner Center. I was told the Center would remain open if school openings were delayed. I tried to find out if the schools were closed/delayed today by going to the Portage Public Schools website. There was no information on their website at all about school cancellations except for a long policy statement about the cancellations. This vital information should be prominent on the schools website. It's a very simple thing to do, I did not find any information about the closing until I visited YOUR page.
The Bonner Senior Center is a wonderful resource for our Community. However, I would love to see hand sanitizer available for seniors upon entry to the Center. If Walmart and other local supermarkets can provide it, the town can as well. We all share items such as hand weights and even the Bingo items. Hand sanitizers would help protect our vulnerable Seniors, especially during Flu Season.
Brendan, is this correct?
Does South Haven have leaf & brush pick up ? If so, when ?
The IWLA Mobile Archery Clinics would love to be a part of your townships events this year. We love to attend family oriented events for the public's benefit. Please check us out at www.facebook.com/YMACwagon. We look forward to scheduling a clinic this year!
Please come out and enjoy our event on the 28th! It’s open to all ages and only costs 2$!
I wish Haven Hallow had drinking fountains!
