I love to travel and some time ago discovered I also love to write, combine this with my husband's photography and we get to share it all with you. Please visit us at www.facebook.com/brucevandersluisimages
To the Club for all things Dutch
Alle Dutchies roepen! (calling all dutchies). If you are Dutch, of Dutch descent or just love everything Dutch, then come along to the Dutch Social and Welfare Club Family Day every third Sunday of the month.
Family Day opens the club rooms, located at 21 Greenfields Drive, Green Fields for an afternoon of fun, food and drink. Traditional Dutch snacks and meals are served throughout the afternoon from 12pm to 4pm, along with a huge selection of Dutch beer and spirits. There is live music, featuring a different band every month along with door prizes and chocolate wheel.
While you are there you can also purchase Dutch treats to take home. The store ('t winkeltje) is open during events and has a large variety of Dutch treats such as chocolate hail, vlokken, licorice, sliced meats, Dutch cheeses, biscuits, rusk bread, soups, vegetables, mayonnaise, curry sauce, croquettes, frikandellen and oh so much more! Outside of events, the shop is open Monday 9am to 1pm and Friday 10am to 2pm.
The Club also holds events such as Dutch Festival, Orange Ball, Sinterklaas Kinderfeest, Sinterklaas Ball and Karnaval Ball throughout the year along with regular catchups throughout the week for Club members.

I love going to the Dutch club for krokets, but if you cant wait until the third Sunday of the month, try the Dutch café on OG road behind the egg shop. They do great krokets and frites(chips) for a good price.
