We Painted the Country Orange  

Festivities, activities, laughter and eventsStelten_2_BDDO_23_April22_-_HERO1 

It all started at the Big Dutch Day Out, in Foxton, 
daar bij die mooie Molen...

And we finished with Orange Bike Rides, all over the country - in 12 cities and towns.

We had great old-fashioned fun - op stelten en blikken. We ate plenty of poffertjes 
En er werd Nederlands gesproken (en gehakkeld... daar zijn we ook trots op!).

Great effort everybody... Let's do it all over again next year.

Even Bigger and Better! Met Meer Oranje!
