The Kentwood Historic Preservation Commission unofficial web site can be accessed here.
The Kentwood Historic Preservation Commission has a room in the Kentwood libary. It is gathering material about Godwin and the surrounding area. It plans to have a good collection of photographs, documents. This is a good chance to preserve Godwin material while still making it available to the public. Several Godwin alumni take part in the commissions's activities.
The following sites all provide ways of contacting other Godwin alumni. Beware. Some have annual fees, and the providers are not very upfront about pointing this out. classmates.com, and highschoolalumni.com. Classmates.com will ask you for all kinds of information (and keep it), and only then informs you that to actually contact anyone you will need to pay $29.95 annually. That said, the site already contains over 1000 Godwin alumni. And by registering people that have paid can presumably contact you, although this is not certain.
