Welcome to the Holland Club Houston

Featured

The Holland Club is a social organization whose purpose is to promote fellowship among its members, and to further interest in the Netherlands and the Dutch Customs and traditions.
The Holland Club was founded in 1960 and celebrated 50 years in 2010. Our yearly events include: a Wine and Cheese gathering; Las Vegas Night; Oranjebal celebrating our Queen’s Day; pool and beach parties; our annual Indonesian dinner, the Rijsttafel; and Christmas and Sinterklaas parties.
Some of our members get together regularly for a pleasant Dutch-style ‘koffie uurtje’ or to play Bridge and Klaverjas. We also have a group who practice Dutch folk dances in wooden shoes, ‘De Texas Klompendansers.’ They perform at folk festivals throughout Texas.

Verklaring van Zijne Majesteit de Koning n.a.v. het neerstorten van een vliegtuig boven Oekraïens grondgebied

 

Ik ben diep getroffen door het vreselijke nieuws over het neerstorten van vlucht MH17 boven Oekraïens grondgebied.

Net als de rest van Nederland volgen mijn echtgenote en ik het nieuws op de voet en hopen wij dat snel meer duidelijk wordt.

Wij leven intens mee met familie, vrienden, collega’s en bekenden van de slachtoffers en met hen die nog in onzekerheid zijn of hun geliefden aan boord van het toestel waren.
