Itís time to make your plans to attend the 2002 Anstead Family Reunion in Holland, Michigan.  The reunion is scheduled for the weekend of July 26-28.  Many thanks to Jim & Therese Shiffler for volunteering to host!

Holland, Michigan is located on the western side of Michigan, right along Lake Michigan.  The Holland Convention & Visitors Bureau (http://www.holland.org/) describes the town as follows:

What is it that draws two and a half million visitors to Holland, Michigan each year?

It's the perfect setting for weekend getaways, family vacations, and year-round recreation, with acres of beaches and parks, and festivals for every season. Holland, Michigan is home to the world famous Tulip Time festival each May, when more than six million tulips burst into bloom as the town celebrates its Dutch heritage.

Unique restaurants, quaint cafes, and farm markets add to an enjoyable day of shopping in Holland's Victorian-styled downtown, which borders the lovely campus of Hope College.

Traditions like Dutch WinterFest and treasures such as the Big Red lighthouse and beautiful bronze statues throughout the town help tell the story of Holland's rich history and strong values.

Whether you come for warm-weather fun, like golfing, swimming, and bicycle touring, or wintertime cross-country skiing, Holland has many hotels and other lodging options to make your stay comfortable and memorable.

Oh!  And did we mention that the Ansteads are going to be there?  In fact, weíve heard from many Ansteads who are planning to attend, including some we havenít seen in many years!  If you havenít been to an Anstead Reunion yet, or havenít been in a while, maybe this is the year to come on up to Holland, Michigan!

Sound interesting?  Please see inside for hotel information and local attractions.  Hope you will join us!

Thank You
