SOUTH HAVEN, Mich. (AP) — An ice cream company in western Michigan is celebrating 100 years of business with $1 cones Saturday.

A one-scoop cone at Sherman Dairy Bar in South Haven usually costs $3.40. But owner Bob Eisenman tells the Kalamazoo Gazette that the big birthday is a good reason to show appreciation for customers.

The $1 cones will be offered from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. There’s also a raffle for 20 free half-gallons of ice cream.

The company started in 1916 when the Sherman family delivered milk. Ice cream came along in the 1940s, and more than 50 flavors still are made today in South Haven, near Lake Michigan.

Eisenman was sales manager when he and his wife bought Sherman Ice Cream about 25 years ago.
