January 4, 4-7 PM
RING IN THE NEW YEAR with the Portland Dutch Society.
We are very happy that the family Meskers has agreed again to host the New Year's reception at their beautiful greenhouse. 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".
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.
As mentioned, 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 4th starting at 4:00 pm.
Please keep an eye on email, we have had to postpone this event in the past due to inclement weather!

This year the Polynesian Festival will take place on the weekend of August 18-19 at the same location as last year: The Uwajimaya Asian Market, located on Beav-Hillsdale Hwy in Beaverton, Performances/activities are scheduled to be from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday as well as on Sunday. This event is free and open to the public.
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.
