The Kentwood Women’s Club is pleased to be hosting an evening with Vonnie Woodrick. Ms. Woodrick is the President and Founder of iUnderstand. The iUnderstand non-profit organization, was created by Vonnie Woodrick in 2014 in loving memory of her husband Rob who lost his battle with depression in 2003. Its mission is to support those who have lost a loved one by suicide or struggle with mental illness.
Ms. Woodrick will address the importance of how awareness about suicide and being educated can help to pinpoint some of the signs of this mental health condition. Ms. Woodrick will be presenting at the Kentwood Women’s Club Meeting on March 21, 2018. The presentation will be held at the Kentwood Library at 4950 Breton Road SE, Kentwood, MI 49508. There will be a social time from 6:45 p.m. At 7:00 there will be a short general meeting followed by the presentation.

A Day trip to Felt Mansion in early May
The Felt Mansion is located between Holland and Saugatuk and was built as a summer home (26 rooms) in 1929. It had fallen into disrepair at one time, but has recently been restored. We need 15 people to receive a tour at a cost of $15 each. We could also combine this with a stop for lunch somewhere within the area if you would like. If you have not already signed Joanne’s reservation sheet at the meeting, please let her know if you are interested by e-mailing her. Remember, we need 15 participants to receive the guided tour and guests are always welcome.

Yearlong donations of women’s products are needed to replenish the area Food Bank. We are collecting feminine products, shampoo, conditioner, and other personal items. These items are always in short supply at the Food Bank; so, your help is needed. You can bring your items to our monthly meetings; and, they will be delivered to the Food Bank. Thank you, in advance, for your generous donations!
