And the organizers (Harmannus & Hanneke, Rieks & Hilleke, Luke & Pierre) are working full time. Apart from this current blog, there is a (hidden) page on the site with the news from the organizing team to follow. Below: an impression of last year’s class reunion in Garnwerd, province of Groningen. The organizing team hopes to have an equal (or perhaps better) result of their efforts.
En de organisatoren (Harmannus & Hanneke, Rieks & Hillike, Luke & Pierre) werken op volle kracht. Naast dit normale blog is er een (verborgen) pagina op de site met nieuwtjes van het organisatie-team. Daarvoor is er een aparte link. De video is een impressie van de klasse-reünie in Garnwerd (prov. Groningen). Wij hopen op een gelijke (of betere) beloning van onze inzet.
