Van Marel Reunion, June 11-26, 2015, in the Netherlands.


Van Marel Reunion, June 11-26, 2015, in the Netherlands.

     The 5th bi-annual family reunion was again held in the country of our forefathers, The Netherlands..  There were 31 family members who left the United States to celebrate this gathering.  A tour was organized by Willem and Rina van der Marel, distant cousins who live in the Netherlands.  It wa an exciting time to get reunited with some family members, but most of the attendees had not met most of the other members before this trip. A wonderful time was had by all, both on an off the bus!!!  The occasion was a fantastic time for bonding, plus we all had the opportunity of seeing many interesting sites along the way.  A selection of photos has been compiled to give you a little taste of our family tour.
