GNE-Tw Silver Jubilee 2011 - selected photos
GNE Twente's Silver Jubilee, 10-09-11
A National Day to mark the 25th anniversary of GNE Twente. This event was attended by some 100 members representing all 8 GNE branches around the Netherlands. The programme included an opening reception at Hotel De Wilmersberg (De Lutte) with lovely views over the Twentse countryside, followed by an illustrated lecture by Quentin Buvelot on the painter Jacob van Ruisdael. After a buffet lunch members travelled by coach to Bad Bentheim, Germany, for a guided tour of the famous castle featured in many of Ruisdael's pantings. Back at De Wilmersberg, we enjoyed a closing 'borrel met hapjes' before saying our farewells. For some 35 members the evening was not quite over - they went on to De Twentse Taveerne for an very jolly open-air buffet supper.
