SOUTH HAVEN — SHOUT for South Haven has announced the 25th annual Cottage Walk will be from noon-5 p.m. June 29.

The public is invited to tour six homes in around South Haven. Summer and year-round residences will be featured.

Tickets are $20, and can be purchased from the South Haven Visitor’s Bureau at 546 Phoenix St., or 637-5252, or in front of the South Haven farmers market on the day of the event.

Volunteers are needed to help staff the homes on June 29. Those willing to help are asked to contact Kay Whale at 312-8284 or

Cottage Walk proceeds enhance the South Haven community in many ways including planting flowers on Dyckman Bridge; providing two, four-faced clocks, one downtown and one on the river channel; and public statuary at City Hall and in front of Taste restaurant.

Last year, SHOUT gave the city the bridge that crosses the stream that runs from Celery Pond to Black River at SHOUT Park.

A considerable donation, made by SHOUT to the Michigan Maritime Museum enabled the museum to purchase the Wilhelm Baum, a large tugboat that will be used to enhance its collection for public viewing and education.

SHOUT for South Haven is a nonprofit dedicated to community enhancement that’s not funded by the city of South Haven.
