AFGELAST: Holland Festival Koningsdag 2020

Beste mensen,

In de huidige omstandigheden rond COVID-19 (Coronovirus) hebben we de moeilijke beslissing moeten nemen om het Koningsdag feest van dit jaar af te zeggen. We nemen de gezondheid en het welzijn van de vrijwiligers, de gemeenschap en het organiserend comitee zeer serieus. Met de informatie waar we heden over beschikken, hebben we het besluit genoemen om dit favoriete evenement af te lassen. We beraden er ons op een later tijdstip op of we dit jaar een alternatied evenement organiseren, of dat we wachten to volgend jaar. We zijn nog in overleg met de organisatoren van het prinses Christina concours om te kijken of het concert dit jaar door kan gaan. Voorlopig houden we de borrel in Portland op de 1e dinsdag van de maand, de borrel in Vancouver op de 2e dinsdag van de maand en koffie bij de Ikea wel op de agenda. Voor deze evenementen kan iedereen zelf kiezen of ze het bij willen wonen, en we dragen ervoor ook geen grote financiele last. Het spijt ons dat we geen beter nieuws hebben, hou een oogje op email, de website of de facebook pagina voor updates.

Dear everyone,

With the current circumstances around COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the Kingsday party at Oaks Park for 2020. We take the health and well-being of the volunteers, the community and the organizing committee very serious. With the information we have today, we have made the decision to cancel this year's event. At a later stage we will determine whether we will organize an alternative event this year, or if we will wait to Kingsday of next year. We are still communicating with the Dutch organizers of the annual prinses Christina concours to see if this year's concert will continue. For now, we will keep drinks on the first Tuesday of the month in Portland, drinks on the second Tuesday of the month in Vancouver and coffee at the Ikea in the events list. Everyone can determine for themselves if they want to join these smaller events, and de society does not carry a large financial responsibility for them. We're sorry we don't have better news. Keep an eye on your email, on the website or our Facebook page for updates

On behalf of the board of the Portland Dutch Society and the Kingsdag organzing committee

For those who aren't aware of this yet, but there is the  'Fabric Depot' on SE 122nd and Stark in Portland where one can find some Dutch and Indonesian things. For instance: speculaas koekjes, dropjes, stroopwafels, sambals, kecaps and more. And around Christmas time there are plenty of TaaiTaai poppen among other things. They used to sell amandelbrood too but I haven't seen those in awhile. Jammer. I love them! So much for this tidbit.
