Thank you for making this vision possible!
The Dutch-Canadians Remember as One organizing committee is a non-profit entity made up of of well known business leaders in Huron County, who started meeting in 2015. Our vison was to make better known Canada's important role in the liberation of Holland, by staging a world-class event in Goderich, Ontario, and use that as a springboard to launch a unique interctive website that will bring our history alive for future generations. Goderich is an appropriate location for this event, since it hosts Liberation Memorial Park. Huron County lost 20 of its finest in the battle to liberate Holland.
Our plan is to host Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, who will attend a reception with veterans, and the families of our 'Huron County 20"; host a Liberation of Holland concert performed by the world-class military band of the Royal Regiment of Canada, accompanied by pipers of the 48th Highlanders; stage a large parade that will include various military units and vintage WWII army vehicles who will then proceed to Memorial Liberation Park for the unveiling of a plaque ceremony attended by Princess Margriet. To fund this, we are relying on the surrounding community to provide individual contributions large and small. It all counts.
We want to acknowledge with thanks the following businesses, municipalities and community groups who have made a financial contribution and have provided the Dutch-Canadians Remember As One committee with much encouragement.
