2014 Festival - 15th February 2014
Holland Festival 2014
This year’s Holland Festival was very successful.
Congratulations go to the hard-working Festival Committee for a very well-organised event.
The Victorian Multicultural Commission, once again, very generously gave us a Grant, and we are grateful for their on-going support. A big thank you also to the other sponsors of the Festival, and to the members of the various clubs of the Associated Netherlands Societies in Victoria Inc, and their friends and family members, who came along and helped set up on the Thursday and Friday and then worked on stalls, administration and other necessary tasks from early until late on Saturday – and some came back on Sunday morning to help take it all down again! This year Klaverjas was back and the trophy was won by Frits Edelenbos, with Bart deWit taking second prize. Thanks to Joop Bisschop for running the event. All the usual information and commercial stands were there – including a very interesting display of replicas of Dutch and other ships. DutchCare also had a stand depicting early migrant life at Bonegilla. These stands always help add to the atmosphere and ‘Dutchness’ of the Festival.
Thank you also to all who attended and helped to make it a very busy, happy day and evening. Good to see so many children in attendance during the day. They seemed to enjoy all the games, etc provided just for them. (My two grandsons won Melbourne Heart Soccer Club caps at the Socer Lion!)
If the Holland Festival is to continue in its present format we need you. If you have any ideas for new and different stalls and/or entertainment the Festival Committee please let us know.
