ABOUT NAS EVENTS

All the NAS events, except on rare occasions, take place within the Los Angeles area. The events are monthly, except for August when there is no event, and generally have a theme, see below, all typically including a happy hour with appetizers, followed by dinner. There is a charge, which varies, to members and guests for attending each of these events.
Annually, there are eight traditional NAS events: New Year, Anniversary Dinner Dance, Membership Meeting, King's Birthday (starting in 2014), Hike and Barbecue, Bike Ride and Lunch, Leidens Ontzet and Sinterklaas. Other events such as a luncheon followed by a visit to a museum or other point of interest, a wine tasting tour or a theme outdoor party may be scheduled for the off months.

The New Year Reception takes place in early January within a week after the actual beginning of the year and takes place at the Beverly Hills Country Club. A delicious assortment of catered hors d'ouerve, cheeses, sandwiches and desserts are always provided along with a NAS hosted bar. The evening is concluded with a champagne toast to the New Year.

February of every year brings the Anniversary Dinner Dance, which celebrates the anniversary of the founding and incorporation of the Netherlands American Society. This is a more formal event (cocktail attire suggested) and takes place at an upscale restaurant or hotel banquet room. A delicious meal is provided along with good music for the dancing pleasure of everyone.
