|Of course it is possible to enjoy your hobby on your own. But may be - or better certainly - more pleasant and instructive to join a society and share your love and experience with others. Many members of our society have become friends, may be for life! And I suppose, that you as a reader of this are not Dutch or of Dutch descent, but everyone is welcome in our society. We even had a member, who was working at the USA Ambassy in the Hague. Also Germans are members of our group. And as a 'foreigner' it might be interesting to read about us. Welcome!!
The 'Dutch Rhododendron Society', NRV
15 years ago, in spring of 1991, about 15 lovers of Rhododendrons decided
to found an own Rhododendron Society. I was already a member of the ARS, the “American Rhododendron Society”, and they asked me if it would be possible to
set up a Chapter of the ARS in Holland. With a number of rhodo lovers we made an
attempt to do so and since 1991 we are the "Dutch Chapter of the ARS'.
Meanwhile, 2005 we have about 125 members, most from the Netherlands, but also
a lot from Belgium and even some from Germany!
We have also some members from Germany and many from Belgium. So, actually we are a Dutch-Flemish society. so, members from Germany and Belgium are welcome!
We have 2 kinds of members, the A-members - they are member of our
Society, but also a member of the ARS. They receive our Dutch quarterly
Bulletin, the “RHODOMANIA” and also the ARS
quarterly magazine the “JOURNAL” with a lot of articles and pictures,
in English of course!
The B-members are only a member of our own Dutch society and receive our bulletin the 'RHODOMANIA'
more information about the dues, meetings etc. consult our secretary or the
website of our society:
It is still partly 'under construction'.
