NLDoet at Stadsboerderij the Molenweide

Also this year, Rotaract Den Haag – Scheveningen took again part in the nationwide NLDoet activities. This year we helped Stadsboerderij the Molenweide. The work consisted of carpentry as well as improvements to the environment. We made new planters, which will be planted with hanging strawberries. In addition, some planters were replanted with flowers, and painted with blackboard paint. Then there was some digging to be done; the outside quarters of the rabbits had to be raised with sand. Here already some muscle power was needed, but when it was done some more was needed to provide the entrance to the field for goats and sheep with new dry sand, otherwise they would sink away in the mud. Because it was almost Easter, there were finally some Easter branches made which will be adorned by the children during the week before Easter and brought to the eldery.

We have also been able to enjoy a good lunch (with pancakes and milk from theĀ  Molenweide!). To top it off we were able to pet the newborn lambs at the end of the day. A few days before we came, two black lambs were born, and the night before we were two white lambs. Spring has really arrived!

Rotaract Scheveningen celebrates 35th anniversary

Rotaract Club Scheveningen celebrated her 7th lustrum on the 25th of October! A close group of alumni, friends of other clubs and current members came together to reflect on the activities of our club and its future.

We then visited the Humanity House, an interactive museum about the journey a refugee has to make. It was an impressive visit which helps you to understand the fear, frustration and stress a refugee experiences. Well worth a visit!
