The necessary holding of the general members' meeting in August 2020 by means of a virtual online platform is also the direct result of this pandemic. Although we have not yet received any reports of Vermeulen descendants dying as a result of the virus, all indications are that the peak in the number of people who will become ill and possibly also die from the virus will only arrive later. The management of the Bond therefore wishes all members and Friends all the best and trusts that everyone will remain healthy and safe.
