Invitation for Saturday, April 25

Koningsdag — the Dutch king’s birthday

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear International students,

We hope you enjoyed the movie last time, and also the different kinds of stamppot. Yesterday we had our first meeting to prepare for the coming event on April 25. That day we will have a preview on Koningsdag, a nationally celebrated day with all kinds of festivities.


The Dutch King’s birthday is on April 27. We will give a short talk to explain the background of this celebration and we’ll sing some songs and do some crazy games suitable to the occasion. And of course shuffleboard! To increase the fun, we would welcome you to wear something orange.

The evenings begin at 18:00. After guests have been welcomed there will be a simple meal of soup and bread, followed by tea and coffee and cake. This meal is free. Coffee and tea are also free.


The evening is free (If you should wish to make a contribution there is a box present for that purpose)

Please sign up for this meeting by Friday, April 24th through the form below[insert_php]or on Facebook[/insert_php] so we know how much food to prepare! We have 50 seats available.

We hope you can join us and bring your friends

IMPORTANT: If you have signed up but for some reason are not able to come will you please let us know as soon as you can so that we know how much food will be needed!
We hope to see you again, and your friends are very welcome!
