Around Windham

The Renaissance Family Center of Windham Ohio Inc., in cooperation with Faithful Servants Care Center, Kent State University and University Hospitals Portage Medical Center in Ravenna, will bring the people of Windham and surrounding communities a free medical clinic with a target opening date of early October.

Renaissance Family Center's mission is "to keep and enhance the quality of life for families of Windham and surrounding communities through services, stewardship of resources and shared responsibility."

More information will be brought to the community with the help of Windham High School, fliers, newspaper articles and social media, so keep watching for the "news of the free clinic" at your RFC.

George Belden's new book is now available from George or from Amazon. It is a funny travel book about George and Helena's travels. As many of you know, both George and Helena both grew up in Windham, as did their travel companion Bob Geiger. They all went on to become teachers.

After their retirement, all three have traveled a great deal and have gone to interesting places where they met interesting people and had many adventures. According to a review I read, this may be the funniest travel book you have ever read.

George is well-known for his great ability to present information and tell yarns in a very fun style. The book is an extension of these skills.

The royalties from the book will go to two food pantries. Both his hometown food pantry at Renaissance Family Center and the Maple Heights Food Pantry.
