Lest we forget the sacrifice…

IMG_3602Those of us who are the children of Dutch post war immigrants grew up not only under the shadow of World War Two but also with a profound sense of appreciation for the sacrifices Canadians made to liberate The Netherlands.  On May 5 Liberation Day will be celebrated again.  This year marks the 70th anniversary! Seventy years ago Dutch citizens pulled all their Dutch and orange flags out of hiding and flew them with overwhelming joy from their roof tops as the Canadian troops paraded through the streets.  We are honoured to have these orange t-shirts available to remember that special day. Come by the Pantry for yours.
