Avid readers abound in the AWCA with book clubs, in various shapes and sizes, appearing in all of our areas, including an evening Book Club in the Haarlem area and a morning Book Group in Amsterdam. These groups are for those who love reading and the scintillating discussion that a book can evoke.
The Excursions Chair gets us moving! She plans a monthly tour somewhere in the Netherlands, allowing both newcomers and long time members a chance to see corners of the country we may not know. Even if we know the spot, the trip is much more fun in a group. Some recent tours have included Palace Het Loo, Naarden Vesting, the Zuiderzee Museum, and Delft, but there are still so very many places to see.
Each area (Amsterdam, Haarlem and 't Gooi) has it’s own form of Moms and Tots gathering for parents and their children under age 10. For example, in Amsterdam, moms meet weekly for play, snacks and good conversation. This is a wonderful opportunity for the tots and moms to make new friends, exchange helpful information and hear fun stories about life in Amsterdam. The moms graciously take turns hosting, so the location changes weekly.
And What else?
