Family Reunion 2023
Dear Family, Dear Friends:
Welcome to Holland!
We have all been here before
No one is new to Holland,
Unfortunately John and Nick are missing this year. Cecilia is still in the hospital. Christopher's plane has been cancelled twice. Theyall shall return next year!
We have a tradition! A wonderful family tradition!A yearly family reunion in Holland!
Our first contacts with the Holland Housearereaching back to 1962.At that time, we had a student, Jerry Bone, now Reverend Bone, living with us in Kalamazoo. He was the first of over 30 students who went through the House of Peace in Kalamazoo, as they got their higher education anddid their Masters or PHDs.
After his graduation from Western Michigan University, our student Jerry Bone wanted to study theology at the University of Chicago. He needed money. His Grandmother had left him a house at the beach of Lake Michigan, in Holland. He wanted to sell the house to us for $16,000,in order to be able to study in Chicago.We were not ready to buy, because we had just bought our house in Kalamazoo, and we did not know, if we would stay at WMU. I founded the Union at WMU without tenior, and did other dangerous things,like leadership in the student revolution of the time. I also taught every summer in Canada, and maybe we would stay there. Thus, Jerry Bone sold the house to two ministers. The ministers then got divorced, and left the ministry, and then separated, and one took over the house, and inherited it to his children. We started to rent the House at the Lake from him instead of buying it for many years. We helped to pay the taxes and for repairs and innovations. one does not have to own things in order to enjoy them! We have now enjoyed the House at the Lake for 61 years. Some of you did not even exist, when we started to come to the House at the Lake, e.g. Jeanne and her whole dear family. The House on the Beach became our second home away from the House of Peace in Kalamazoo.
Your Mother, and Grandmother, and Greatgrandmother, the beginning and origin of our whole family, loved the Houseon the Beach and Lake Michigan. She wept bitterly, when she had to say good bye to it in June 1978. Maybe today, as some theologans say, she is closer to nature than she was before, and if so, she will enjoy tremendously seeing her six Greatgrandchildren swimming together inherbeloved Lake Michigan in July 2023.
Since 1962, our family tree has grown powerfully in the USA and in Canada. It continues to grow in 2023. Lauren and Karl have put together the most recent and present events of growth of our family tree.Thank you to Lauren and Karl for creating the list of events.Thanks to you as well as to Agnesfor organizing our whole Family Reunion 2023, and the whole House on the Beach event during the two weeks of family vacations.
