REMINDER: Christmas/Kerst Koffie/Singalong on Thursday, December 12th

Dag Allemaal,

We are looking forward to our first Dutch International Society Christmas/Kerst Koffie/Singalong this Thursday, December 12th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM! Beautiful old songs and carols just can’t be replaced. As mentioned previously, words for the songs will be available in English and in Dutch. We are privileged to use the new grand piano in the sanctuary at Redeemer Orthodox Presbyterian Church located at 8605 E. Fulton (M-21) in Ada, Michigan 49301. Accomplished musician Cynthia Haas will be at the piano.

We are looking forward to a gezellige avond (cozy evening). Coffee will be served in the church Gathering Room at 6:30 and, at 7:00, we will move into the sanctuary for our singalong and sharing.

Reflecting the results of the survey that many of you were kind enough to complete and return to us, the following categories will be incorporated into the evening:

Attend A Dutch Language Event – 48% interested.
Dutch Psalmen/Gezangen – 28% interested.
Koffee Kletz – 48% interested.
Dutch Folk Songs/Music – 40% interested.
Dutch Traditions – 65% interested.

We hope you will share your traditions and stories. If you would like to bring some sweet treats to share, that would be appreciated as well.

For more information on the DIS Christmas/Kerst Koffie/Singalong please contact Maria DeLugt Kocsis at or call (616) 437-4663.

We hope to see you there!

Tot Ziens,
The DIS Board of Trustees
