Having moved to Elim in 2001 make Henk and Willy van Huizen ‘village staples’ so to speak. Involved in the early development years, they witnessed the flattening of the greenhouses to make way for The Bowron, their home for over 18 years. They are actively involved at Elim and understand the value of community. Emphasis on ‘actively’, as they both would like to acknowledge the weekly fitness classes they attend. “Exercising feels good and is therapeutic,” says Henk. Willy added to Henk’s comment saying that the relationships that have come out of the fitness program have been equally beneficial.
Henk and Willy are excited to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on October 17, 2019.
