Dear NLC Friend,

 

Sinterklaas is unable to visit you this year.

But have no fear!

Sint is thinking of you and he knows you think of him too.

NLC is unable to celebrate the holidays with you in December.

With DUCA’s help, Sint is sending you something to remember.

A chocolate letter, to make you feel better!

With best wishes from your DUCA and NLC Friends.

 

Prettige Feestdagen/Happy Holidays!

Gelukkig en Gezond Nieuwjaar/Happy and Healthy New Year!

With thanks to our sponsors

A Letter from 

Anne Le Guellec,

Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands

T H A N K S G I V I N G G R E E T I N G

Dear friends at the Netherlands Luncheon Club, As we approach a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend, I am reaching out to you here to let you know that I am thinking of you. I hope this message finds you as well as can be, physically and mentally, as you have endured much during the past months. Ever since social distancing became essential to protect ourselves, our family and the community from the coronavirus, we are suffering from the loss of social contact in our daily lives. I find too how virtual encounters are not a satisfactory substitute for the in-person warmth of face-to-face camaraderie. I understand how much you have missed your gatherings, and I also have missed seeing you, and us celebrating our traditional events together. I want you to know that the team at the consulate is here for you. Please let us know how you are coping, or if you have a concern, or need help. My contact email address is: tor-cdp@minbuza.nl. The consular desk has re-opened recently, by appointment only. If you have a question about a consular service please don’t hesitate to send the consular department an email: tor-ca@minbuza.nl. As hard as it may be, I encourage you to stay patient and positive, as better days will come. We will get through these challenging times together! With my best wishes for your health, safety and well-being. Happy Thanksgiving!
