Van Veen Application for Membership

Lindsey and Joel Van Veen have purchased the former Fox cottage on Audubon and have applied for membership in the Castle Park Association, sponsored by Ben Watson/Henry Greenewalt and endorsed by Dick and Nancy Shepard.

As required by our Bylaws and prior to the Board voting on the membership application, we’ll have a short, 45-day, period during which members may comment on the application by directing an email to or to Beverly Burns at Family information as submitted by Lindsey and Joel follows: “Lindsey and a Joel were married in the amphitheater in 2017 and have enjoyed the year-round charm of Castle Park while spending time at her family cottage (Etterbeek). Full-time residents of the Ottawa Hills neighborhood in Grand Rapids, Lindsey works for textile company Maharam while Joel operates a concrete grinding company. They look forward to creating a hideaway of their own and spending restful weekends at Castle Park as they introduce their four-month old daughter, Marin, to the magic of the lakeshore. Lindsey and Joel have reviewed the association bylaws and agree to abide by all rules and regulations.”
