Can it be more Dutch? Klompen en Sinterklaas


De Nederlandse school, The Dutch Language Program in Ottawa, is op zoek naar houten klompen voor kinderen in de leeftijd van 4-14 jaar. We kunnen ze goed gebruiken als de kinderen van de school een optreden doen en daarbij verkleed gaan in Nederlandse klederdracht. Als u klompen wilt doneren, gaarne contact opnemen met Marleen Bruinsma, mhg.bruinsma@ yahoo. com. Tel. 613-899-2574
The Dutch Language Program in Ottawa is looking for wooden clogs for children in the age range of 4-14 years old. We will use them when the children give performances and are dressed up in Dutch traditional clothing. If you would like to donate wooden clogs, please contact Marleen Bruinsma at: mhg.bruinsma@ yahoo. com Tel. 613-899-2574

As per November 10, there is no grace period anymore for visitors to Canada. They have to organise their ETA in advance and the airlines won't make exceptions for Dutch folks on wooden shoes visiting their grandkids in Canada anymore. 

So if you have visitors coming to admire the Great White North, make sure they have their ETA organised. Read more on the government of Canada website here.
ETA now!
