Honoring Betty Ford's 100th Birthday
Joanne Monnier has planned an outing to the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum for Saturday, November 17 at 10:00 am. This outing will be an opportunity for attendees to see this limited exhibit celebrating Betty Ford’s 100th Birthday Celebration. The name of the exhibit is called, “In Step With Betty Ford: A Celebration of her Centennial.” Mrs. Ford was a pioneer, and was intregal in setting up the Betty Ford Substance Abuse Clinics. In addition, her candidness about her own breast cancer diagnosis gave way for the Betty Ford Breast Care Services. The museum exhibit will give an indepth look into the life of this extraordinary woman. The cost is $7.00. A sign-up sheet will be at the next Kentwood Women’s Club meeting.
Please join us for this interesting opportunity and possibly lunch afterward too.
