Mr. and Mrs. Jake Porter and family attended a family reunion Saturday
at the home of Mrs. Porter's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Heemstra, of
Orange City, in commemoration of the latter's fortieth anniversary.  The
party was gotten up by the children of Mr. and Mrs. Heemstra as a
surprise.  Fine refreshments were served by the perpetrators during the
day.  The reunion will be long treasured in the hearts of those in
attendance as a tender memory of an occasion which will probably never
again be sanctified by an unbroken band.
