imagePENTWATER — Time flies when you are having fun and even faster when you’re joining together with friends four times a year to make a difference in Oceana County.

And it’s hard to believe that the Women Who Care of Oceana will kick off their fifth year, June 7, with a one-hour meeting at Gull Landing in Pentwater beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Since its first meeting on June 5, 2012, the group has contributed $161,500 to 16 Oceana County non-profits serving area residents.

On the first Tuesday of March, June, September and December, the women meet for an hour, learn about three worthy causes serving county residents, and choose one that everyone agrees to support with $100 personal checks. Socializing follows for those who have the time to stay.

Membership currently totals140 and is open to any woman who wants to be involved in this unique, joint effort. Students are welcome to join if they pledge to contribute $50 to the chosen cause at each quarterly meeting.

Check out the energy that this terrific group of area women generates by logging onto www.facebook.com/oceanawomenwhocare and browsing through four years of postings by those who participate. For more information, contact Amy LaBarge at 313.268.2086.
