Invitation for Saturday, May 31 at Het Pand!A Special Party — our first meeting at Madoerastraat 16 (link)
International Cafe @ Facebook (link)
To all international students,
We hope you had a great King’s Day celebration and are ready to join us again at International Cafe for an evening of fun, food and conversation! We have a brand new building to use for our meetings and want to celebrate our first evening there! We look forward to welcoming you there with your friends.
This time is extra special — we would like to invite you to bring some food from your own culture to share with everyone. If everyone brings enough for several people we should have a wonderful buffet of international samples to taste! We suggest that you prepare the food at home, and then it can be warmed up (if necessary) in the wonderful new kitchen at Het Pand. Please inform JoAnn about what you are going to bring and for how many people you will prepare your tasty dish. You can contact her using 0594-851746 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or just use the form below!!
We will provide coffee and tea and homemade cake for dessert and an extra surprise because it is a special day.
So this will be our first meeting at our new building, called Het Pand, at Madoerastraat 16 in Groningen. In the menu at the top of this website, we will provide a link with a photo, a map and directions to Het Pand.
On May 31 there will be time to get to know the new building Het Pand and hear a bit about how it got built and about its function as a center for people living in the Korreweg neighborhood.
As usual there will be plenty of time for games and conversation.
Many of you have requested excursions, and we are pleased to announce that we will visit a Dutch farm on June 28th. This is a yearly event which we organize for those still in Groningen for the summer. More information will follow in a separate invitation.
Please let us know by Wednesday May 28 what food you hope to bring along so that we can make further plans for the meal.
We hope that most of you will bring food, but if for some reason you can’t — please come anyway, and be sure to sign up by Friday, May 30 Use the form below or join the event through facebook.
We hope you can join us and invite your friends as well.
IMPORTANT: If you have signed up for any of our events but for some reason are not able to come will you please let us know as soon as you can This helps us a lot with our planning.
Welcome to all!
Paul Nieboer, Hans and JoAnn van Seventer, Hinke van Abbema and Martin Geertsma
