McLennan Head Of Dutch Society
The Canada Netherlands Society elected John McLennan president, at a recent meeting and election of officers in the club rooms at the Reliance Hall.
Abram Van Buren was named honorary president, while Austin Lane was re-elected honorary secretary. John Goodman is vice-president; Mrs. Stanley Haynes, treasurer; C. W. Myatt, secretary; J. Russel and F. Dixon, directors.
THE SOCIETY is planning a tour of the Southern Alberta beet fields later in the spring, when the Dutch Consul General and the Netherlands Abassaor are expected to visit Calgary. The official visit is for the purpose of reviewing job prospects for Dutch immigrants who are expected in Alberta in 1949. Some immigrants are expected in Alberta in 1949.
Some immigrants are expected to arrive in Alberta sometime in April, although the large part of immigrants to arrive from Holland this year will remain in Eastern Canada.
