Kaeminghs back home from European vacation

Ted and Ynkse Kaemingh are home from a month’s vacation to The Netherlands, where they spent time visiting with cousins and other relatives.
The couple also spent three weeks with their daughter, Christine, and family in Geneva, Switzerland. It’s a little difficult getting used to the style and culture, etc. there, but the family is managing quite well.

On Friday morning, my wife and I visited with the Ducharmes at Tim Hortons in Fort Frances. Garry is visiting here from British Columbia while Mark was over from International Falls, where he is on staff at Falls Memorial Hospital.
The former Tracy Ducharme lives close to Garry in B.C. while Todd resides at Devlin. Nonetheless, the brothers and sister still keep in close touch with each other.

Joanne Swire was on duty at Circle D Restaurant in Emo Sunday. I, of course, congratulated her as one of the 19 graduates from the nurses’ program and I viewed the graduation photos of her in different poses.
Nursing is a good career to work at. Joanne advised me she’s been at Rainycrest for 10 years, and now would like to be employed at either La Verendrye or Rainy River.
