Thank You To Michigan Army National Guard Volunteers! | 8/18/2014

The Cities of Kentwood and Wyoming were the welcome recipients of volunteer assistance from the Michigan Army National Guard’s 44th Street Armory.  About 30 soldiers took part in helping July 6th storm victim recover through clean up over the weekend.  A very special thanks to these dedicated folks for what they do!

World Renew Conducting Unmet Needs Assessments for Storm Victims | 8/14/2014
World Renew, a locally based international disaster response team, will be out in the affected portions of our community this weekend assessing residents unmet needs related to the storm.  These folks will be out in force!  They will be in green shirts with ample identification as to who they are.  They are here to help!  Also, storm affected residents have been sent a mailer indicating where natural and man-made materials may be brought for disposal.  Please keep an eye out. If you did not receive a mailer, you are not in the storm impact zone area.

Emotional Week in Kentwood | 8/8/2014
As I reflect on the events of this week, I can certainly say it was an emotional week for the City.  Firstly, the tragic loss of a young man and pain of that loss to all those who loved him and responded to the call.  We all feel deeply saddened when children are taken from us too soon.  National Night Out coincidentally occurred the next day and it gave neighborhoods a chance to interact and talk about this incident and how we can do our very best to say something when we see something.  Yet, random acts such as this are hard to prepare for and they happen in all types of communities.  My deepest condolences to all who were affected by this young man’s passing.
