Come to the Big Dutch Day Out. See 'Your Name' unveiled!
We're launching the country's first ever Dutch Week, next to windmill De Molen, on 24 April, in Foxton. A spectacular 40 m Art Mural will be presented to the public by the Hon. Priyanca Radhakrishnan, Minister of Ethnic Communities, Ambassador Mira Woldberg, and MP Marja Lubeck. And that will be the official start of Dutch Week.
Your name can feature on the panels next to the Painting - by Amsterdam artist Jan van der Ploeg - as they are unveiled by the VIPs. All it takes is a donation of $250 to the Oranjehof museum.
Join in before 18 April. And your family or business name will be up there, as the first ever Dutch Week takes shape – next to Jan's art painting on the side of our building (on the grey panels).
On a Memorial Wall, that graces a beautiful building.

Celebrate All Things Dutch
24 April is Foxton's big Big Dutch Day Out. You can do some 'ice' skating, let the kids fly kites, and play traditional Games. And eat yummy treats - like kroketten, stroopwafels en frikandel!
It's all part of Dutch Week - from 24 April to 1 May. There's also the opening of the brilliantly colourful Leon van den Eijkel retrospective exhibition - 'A Colourful Nation'. And there are Dutch immigrant stories to discover in the Oranjehof Dutch Connection Centre.
