Henry (born 1916) and Min (born 1921) Groeneveld and two children moved to Dunster from Holland in 1949. After working for two years for their sponsor, McBride postmaster George Long, they bought a farm in Dunster and started a dairy, which they operated until their retirement in 1975. They were the first in Dunster to ship fluid milk to Prince George, in 1950. Henry remembers spending thousands of hours in the Dunster station, waiting for the train.
