President's Message

Dear Members and Friends of KVGS,
Mark your calendars for a special program by Shirley Gage Hodges, a frequent speaker at our general meetings. Shirley will speak about  "The Women of World War II."  World War II marked a new era in the women's movement from the home and public sphere.  Shirley will show how these women battled both prejudice and enemy soldiers for their place in history.
This is a fund raiser for the Hospitality House at 1800 Henson Avenue, Kalamazoo, on Monday, November 12, at 7:00 pm. Reservations are necessary and donations accepted. Please see the flyer listed with this event in the Events Page. 
Hope to see you there-
Jan Wright
