Next Meeting

Wednesday, November 3 at 10:00 AM

Due to the need to limit physical proximity as the Coronavirus Pandemic takes its course, Probus Ottawa - Rideau Valley has suspended its physical monthly meetings until further notice. We are still active though and are doing our best to find ways to keep in touch with you. With that in mind we will continue to hold our monthly presentations using Zoom Conferencing.

This month's presentation will feature

Thera Westerhoud
Wageningen 45


Harry Te Raa
Co-ordinator of Commemoration and Volunteers
Wageninen 45

This presentation, from the Netherlands, will be provided by Wageningen 45 (The
National Committee Commemorations Capitulations 1945). This is a Dutch organization, which
offers a platform for peace and freedom obtained in the Netherlands in 1945. It draws attention
to worldwide issues of Peace, Freedom and Security from Wageningen, the Netherlands, the
City of Liberation. It also honours the contribution of Canadian service members who fought for
the liberation of the Netherlands during WW II.
The Director of Wageningen 45 Thera Westerhoud and Harry Te Raa, the Coordinator of
Commemoration and Volunteers, will be talking to us about their organization and how it
honours WW II Canadian service personnel who fought for the liberation of the Netherlands.
