WELCOME

Our goal is to bring together the Dutch community residing in Oregon and Southwest Washington through improved communication and cooperation.

Nieuwjaars borrel 2018

RING IN THE NEW YEAR with the Portland Dutch Society.

This will be a potluck party and we invite you all to bring a hearty snack or a dessert. Dutch treats like oliebollen, appelflappen, gevulde speculaas, bitterballen, etc. would be great, but other snacks are of course welcomed.

We are looking for finger food as this "een staande receptie". 

Live music will be provided by our own Michele van Kleef and Rob Rainwater

Coffee, water and wine will be provided, but feel free to bring your own beverage, either non-alcoholic or alcoholic. 

This event is geared towards grown-ups and we will leave it up to you if you feel you want to bring your children along. 

The venue is uniquely Dutch: a modern greenhouse where Dutch flowers are grown. Don't miss this opportunity to see this type of operation up close. According to the Dutch tradition there will also be sjoelbakken for you to play. 
We hope you can join us on January 21th starting at 4:00 pm.

Kings Day 2018

This year's Koningsdag celebration will happen Sunday April 29 from 4 PM to 7 PM.

Nederlands Language Support Needed

Started by Deanna Schindler-Ord. Last reply by Karl Keating Feb 15. 2 Replies

Hi all-Sorry for the English! We just returned from 3.5 years in Amsterdam where my kids (10 & 13) attended Dutch school. As they're almost fluent (and worked really hard for it), we'd like to find them some sort of support so they don't lose it.Whether it's via classes, or if there's a kid-friendly conversational group, I'd love some suggestions. Please let me know if you are aware of either. (Or, if you're a tutor...) The tiener has already switched the electronics over to Dutch to "keep…Continue

Gezelligheid?

Started by Else Dorine Ellens Jan 31. 0 Replies

Hi, I'm Else, 36 years old. I moved to the Oregon Coast in June 2017. Where I live is kind of a remote area and -other than I expected- I miss the Dutch 'kneuterigheid'. I'm delighted to have found the Portland Dutch Society and hope to come for a borrel soon. Since Portland is still 2,5 hours away I was wondering if there are more people living on -or close to- the coast (Lincoln County) who would like to meet. I love to be outdoors; hiking, biking, surfing, stand up paddling. Wanna join…Continue

Beste Hotels/motels/B&B om de avond voor de sinterklaas viering to overnachten.

Started by Tanja Nov 8, 2017. 0 Replies

Ik zou graag met onze twee jongste kinderen (bijna 3 en net 4) graag naar de sinterklaasviering komen, maar wij komen uit WA en het is 2 1/2-3 uur rijden. Ik wil niet op dezelfde dag heen en terug rijden. Vandaar mijn vraag wat de beste, niet al te prijzige locaties om te overnachten zijn, dicht bij de locatie van de viering.(Ik weet dat erop 19 november een sinterklaas aankomst/viering in Seattle is, maar daar kunnen we jammer genoeg die dag niet heen.)Ik hoop dat iemand mij hierbij kan helpen.Continue

Is anyone familiar with the current the rules and regulations on obtaining dual citizenship?  Or has anyone recently gone through this?

Thank you - Eveline
