About Us

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 1.59.23 PMThe Netherlands Luncheon Club, based in Toronto Canada, currently has a membership of some 270 people. As the pioneers of the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s retire, the club is looking for ways to attract new members. The great challenge for the club is to adapt itself to, and flourish in the new century. New immigrants from Holland and desecendants from immigrants are just two sources from which to maintain and expand membership. Being able to speak Dutch is not a prerequisite, as English is the official language of the Netherlands Luncheon Club and its speakers. Basically, anyone who is in some way, business or social, connected to the Netherlands, is welcome to apply.
