Spring is the air! Everywhere you look, terraces are full, flowers are blooming and the sun is shining. TIC’s agenda has also been full with lots of fun activities like football matches, borrels (happy hour) and cultural theatre performances. As everyone sheds their winter coats and looks forward to the warmer weather, your TIC board is busy planning lots of things for you to enjoy. We have some outdoor activities coming up that will get you out into the sunshine and enjoying spring. Activities like touring a cheese farm, biking to the Schrobbeler factory and a borrel at the outdoor event Hap Stap. So let’s shed the winter blues together and enjoy getting outside!
The board is working hard to provide you with diverse activities in the hope that everyone can find something on the agenda to enjoy. If you would like to volunteer your services, we are currently looking to fill the position of Treasurer. Contact any board member for more information. We would love to have you!
