South Haven Fire Department

Over the past several weeks, several members, groups, and businesses from our community organized a fundraiser in order to provide our entire department with dinner. Pizza, Wings, Ice Cream Cakes, and Drinks were delivered to the station tonight. To say that we are grateful would be a understatement.

The South Haven community has always been special through its love and compassion. We have always felt a strong sense of support from our community, and tonight was just another example.

Many of you show your support to us by waving at the trucks as we pass. Others of you donate to our community programs every year. Some of your neighbors may even volunteer on our department, serving without you even knowing. Regardless of how you interact with us, the support from our community is felt every time the alarm goes off.

We are beyond thankful for the dinner tonight. South Haven truly lives a "neighbors helping neighbors" mentality. Thanks also Santini's Pizza and South Haven Dairy Queen. Both have been extremely supportive businesses to our department.

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!
