Annual Meeting 2019

Our Annual Member Meeting & Board Election is coming up on June 1st at the Westchester Fire Station. A light buffet will be served at 12:30 pm and the program will commence at 1 pm.

Our Theme This Year

This year’s theme is “Everybody’s talking – hot topics right now in Kentwood.”

Our featured speaker will talk about existing and proposed density development laws, including an update on SB 50. We will also have representatives of the Neighborhood Council filling us in on that body’s role in our community and how to get involved. We also have a Neighborhood Council election coming up and we’ll have candidates on hand for a meet & greet.

Please RSVP

A light lunch will also be served. Please RSVP on our Facebook event page to help us order the right amount of food. Link here.
