On Saturday, November 18th. The annual volunteer evening of the neighborhood association was held. There was a big turnout again and it was a pleasant evening. This time, the sports hall had been converted into a gaming paradise. All volunteers were divided into teams that competed with each other with the many old Dutch or modern games.
The “Member of Merit of 2023” was also announced on this evening. The person chosen by the board this year, like the list of illustrious predecessors, has done a lot of work and meant a lot to the district. And still do. It is someone who is always ready to help with activities. Very active in the family spectacle, the barrel talkers and the children’s carnival.
Member of Merit 2023 has become: Marcel van der Donk.
Marcel has received the challenge cup with an inscription.
We also said goodbye to board member Herman Coenjaarts who is moving to Limburg. Herman has been editor of Blixemflitsen for many years and has been a member of the board since 2019. In recent years, he has also been very active in the Blixembosch senior working group.
In addition, the board has appointed Carina Oosting as an honorary member of the neighborhood association this year. Ab and Carina Oosting have been active in the neighborhood association for years and are now moving. They say goodbye in the working group where they were active (Ab in the Liveability Team and Carina in the editorial board of Blixemflitsen). We especially wanted to put Carina in the spotlight at the volunteer evening because of her great merits for the neighborhood association. She was already involved in the foundation in 1991, organized many activities and was also a member of the board. In recent years, she has been editor-in-chief of Blixemflitsen.
Carina has received a beautiful certificate, a bunch of flowers and a gift from the editors in the form of a piece of jewellery in the style of Blixemflitsen.
