The monthly magazine of the American Women's Club of The Hague



by Melissa Rider

by Greetje Engelsman

With 15 new women joining since

January, our Membership is now at

176 Members. As you may already

know, any English-speaking woman may join

the AWC. Currently, 24% of our Membership

is international. The demographic trend of

our newer Members tends to be younger,

working women. But non-working women

still make up 58% of the AWC, with working

woman comprising 22.7%. Our Honorary

Members who have been with the Club for

a minimum of 25 years compose 12.5% of

the Membership. Our smallest groups are our

Overseas and Student Members at 4.5% and

2.3%, respectively.

Welcome New Members!



Dutch Products Class

(Especially for new Members: a must!!)

AWC Member and long-term resident of

the Netherlands, Carol Slootweg, will explain

Dutch cooking and cleaning products.

She teaches cooking classes, so she is an

expert in using local products and converting

American recipes. She and Greetje

Engelsman have co-produced a book entitled

Dutch Products, which will be offered

for sale for € 10.

Join this class and you will never be confused

about cooking or cleaning products in

the Netherlands again!
