Sturgis Bank and Trust recently presented a $1,000 donation to South Haven Area Emergency Services toward the purchase of an underwater sonar search device for the department’s dive team.

SOUTH HAVEN — Since the drowning of three swimmers in Lake Michigan last summer, South Haven Area Emergency Services has been steadily upgrading its efforts to help distressed swimmers.

The latest life-saving apparatus for SHAES is an underwater sonar search device for the department’s dive team, according to SHAES Executive Director Brandon Hinz.
