Welcome New Members: Fred and Cindy Van Drimmelen

Fred and Cindy Van Drimmelin

 

Fred are Cindy are both native Oregonians and have been married 34 years this August having met on a blind date.  We live in the Milwaukie area with our silly lab, Tillie.  We have three grown children and three grandchildren.

We have been Episcopalians for the past 22 years coming into the Episcopal church under Father Toll at St. John the Evangelist.  We were attracted to Grace by the welcoming congregation, the beautiful music, and the awe-inspiring sermons we have been blessed to hear.  Having been accustomed to being actively engaged in our previous parish, we are looking forward to finding our place in Grace’s parish life.

Fred works as a Systems Engineer for Cisco Systems and Cindy is a part-time office administrator for Willamette Falls Neuropsychology.

Fred enjoys playing golf while Cindy’s hobbies include hand-sewing, gardening, and planning our next escape to the beach.

When we are not at church on Sundays, you can bet that we are either spending time with our kids or camping at one of our many favorite spots — coast or mountains we have too many to count.
