Dear Members and Friends of the Holland Club of New Orleans.

This is just a short newsletter to keep you all informed about the Holland Club for the new club year.

On the 11th of September 2011 the Club held the traditional start meeting for the 2011- 2012 club year at Max and Cily’s residence. (Thanks Max and Cily for opening your house again and providing delicious snacks and beverages.
