Hopefully you will all remember our new and wonderful friends from the Netherlands, Eildert and Julia Beeftink. They spent a wonderful week here in Sullivan County in early June. Julia was in her seventh month of pregnancy at that time (and climbed through the gorge better than I did). On August twentieth they welcomed the birth of their son Max! As you can see, he’s a handsome young lad and the pride of his parents. I sent the congratulations and well wishes of all our locals who got to meet them on their trip here. They say they will be back soon to once again bird our beautiful county.
