Our community mourns the loss of Barbara Ellen Penny of Three Rivers, Michigan who passed away from heart failure on May 14, 2024, at the age of 77. 

Watershed Voice extends its deepest sympathies to Barb’s family and friends. She was an ardent advocate for so many local organizations, including ours, and we couldn’t be more grateful for having known her. Rest in Power, Barb.

The Three Rivers Promise received a huge boost to its fundraising efforts this week when Kadant Johnson pledged $50,000 to the scholarship program. In addition, Kadant Johnson will match all corporate donations up to an additional $50,000. The locally based company will go a step further, inviting all its employees to donate to the Promise with the guarantee of a matching donation from Kadant Johnson.
