Rotary District Honors Al Ruppert

South Haven businessman Al Ruppert was honored by the Rotary District 6360 Foundation recently (October 30)  for his community stewardship as a recipient of the Golden Trowel Award. District 6360 is comprised of 66 Rotary clubs, mostly in southwest Michigan. The award is presented to non-Rotarians who have made a significant impact on their community. Ruppert was earlier this year presented the South Haven Rotary's Citizen of the Year award which led to his nomination for the District recognition. On the professional side, he is the one that built and provided the energizing force for the iconic Clementine's Restaurant and Hawks Head Golf Course in South Haven and Clementine's Too in St. Joseph. On the philanthropic side he is involved in numerous ways of generously donating his time, treasure and talent to make the community a better place to live, work and play.

Grant Supports Historic Scott Club

The Rotary Club of South Haven has funded the installation of a fire detection system at the historic Scott Club building. The stately Queen Anne style building, constructed in 1893, is a Michigan historic site. The fire detection system facilitates the immediate notification of the fire department.  This is the second installation of a state-of-the-art fire detection system in a historically important building funded by the Rotarians. The first was at the Historical Association of South Haven (formerly Hartman School) in 2017. The $5,000 award for the Scott Club project was made possible thru a matching grant from the Rotary District 6360 Foundation.

Sculpture Honors Rotarian

A new downtown sculpture, "Life's Garden", honors the memory of Rotarian and community leader Glenn Pietenpol. The sculpture is outside the Chemical Bank building, corner of Phoenix and Center. It was made possible by the Greater South Haven Area Community Foundation.
