PLANTING TOMORROW: 70th Anniversary Dutch-Canadian Friendship Tulip Garden

Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of The Netherlands and the Dutch Gift of Tulips

2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of The Netherlands and the end of the Second World War. It also marks the 70th Anniversary of the first gift of 100,000 Dutch tulips bulbs to Canadians as a symbol of appreciation for the role Canadian soldiers played in the liberation of the Netherlands and the hospitality Canada provided to the Dutch Royal Family in Ottawa during the War.

The Peterborough Horticultural Society has gratefully been awarded one of the 140 gardens distributed across Canada.

The planting ceremony will occur on Saturday, October 31 2015 at Fleming Park (Brock & Aylmer) in downtown Peterborough.

Mayor Darryl Bennet, veterans, school children, members of the Horticultural Society and the public will be present.
