At the end of August, Joyce Jones traveled to Umea, Sweden, to visit a friend and former Cedar Springs High School foreign exchange student, Sonia Frangsmyr-Dermes. Umea, located in northern Sweden, is the cultural capital of Europe, and also known as the “City of Birches.”

“We met in high school as she came from Sweden as an exchange student, and then graduated from Cedar Springs High School together in 1963,” explained Joyce. “Sonia has been here many times to visit and renew acquaintances, and I have visited her in Sweden numerous times. Some members of our graduating class meet once a month over breakfast, and Sonia was able to join us this past August.”

Thank you, Joyce, for taking us with you!
