Kentwood to Honor 50 Year Business | 3/21/2017
The City of Kentwood will continue its year-long 50th Anniversary celebration with a breakfast honoring businesses that have served the community since its founding.
Hosted at the Kent District Library Kentwood Branch on March 23, the breakfast will honor 23 businesses that currently call Kentwood home. A diverse group of businesses will be honored, ranging from large retailers like JCPenny to locally-owned businesses like Tubergen Saw and Cutter.
“Not only are we diverse in the residents of our community, but in the businesses and organizations that call Kentwood home,” said Mayor Stephen Kepley.  “The long tenure many of our businesses have enjoyed coupled with the exciting new businesses choosing to open their doors here is a strong testament to the desirability of Kentwood.”

The breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. at the Kent District Library Kentwood Branch and feature a short awards ceremony to honor the businesses.
