The Post travels to Spain

Marina Dalmau, from Barcelona, Spain, visited Cedar Springs as a foreign exchange student this summer. She is now back in Spain at the beach of Tamariu, in Costa Brava, Spain on holiday for the month of August and she took a Post with her!

Marina was here for six weeks, and stayed with the family of Shawn and Katy Austin. “During that time she attended The Springs Church with us, and was the official Photography assistant at VBS,” said Katy. “We enjoyed going to Lake Michigan with our neighbors and family. We went to Grand Haven, Ferrysburg, and Silver Lake. We also went to John Ball Zoo, attended a movie at The Kent Theater, and enjoyed lunch at the Cedar Springs Brewing Company. Our neighborhood called it “The Summer of Marina,’ as we all enjoyed showing her the best that Pine Lake had to offer, including swimming, boating and bonfires.”

It sounds like you all had a great summer, and thank you to Marina for taking us with you to Spain!

The Post goes to Spain


Tom and Claudia Mabie recently enjoyed a trip to Spain with Tom’s sister, Mary, and her husband Jack Eldred. They took this photo, with a copy of the Post, at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. The Alhambra was established by the Nasrid dynasty in 1237 and experienced many occupations over the centuries. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

The two couples were celebrating Mary’s retirement after 31 years of teaching. Jack and Mary are both 1965 graduates of Cedar Springs High School. They currently reside in New Jersey.

Thanks for taking us with you on your adventure!
