We have had our 2011 both of The Federation Klaverjas competitions. First to be held was the Federation Cup Klaverjas Competition, which was organised by the Wellington Klaverjas Club. Manawatu (Palmerston North) Club was the overall winner and the second place-getter was Christchurch and received the Windmill trophy - congratulations to both teams. The Ring in Klaverjas Competition was held on the weekend of 16/17 July but I have no results final results as yet. This week I witnessed the presentation of their Dutch citizen ship to a dozen people. The oldest one to be in his nineties; once a Dutchman, always a Dutchman. More people seem to get closer to their Dutch heritage again. It is easier to be in contact with the Netherlands with cheap telephone calls, text (smsjes ) messages, BVN TV, s and when you hop on the plane, you can be in the Netherlands the following day. Kees Dorresteijn Van de N.Z. Netherlands Society Wanganui Beste Leden en Lezers. Even een berichtje vanuit Wanganui. Ook wel genoemt de River City en inderdaad de rivier loopt midden door de stad en mond uit in de Tasman Zee. Er is heel wat in dit water waar de Wanga mensen zich vermaken met wandelen, fietsen. Ook word er vis menige gevangen, zoals cod, kaiwhai, haring en als we het echt treffen een scholletje, wij zelf eten meestal 1x per week zelf gevangen vis. We hebben een zeil club, roeien word ook veel gedaan. Met een moter aan de boot kan men een heel eind de rivier op. De Waimarie is een plezier stoomboot, die regelmatig de rivier op en neer vaart. Zo zouden we wel door kunnen gaan over onze rivier die de Wanga s zoveel plezier geven. k Zou zeggen als de kans er is voor jullie rij niet zomaar Wanganui voorbij. Het is de moeite van t stoppen waard. Zoals de logo het hier zegt. lt s worth the journey. En er is nog steeds een Hollandse club. We zijn klein, maar vinden het fijn, om af en toe als Dutchies bij elkaar te zijn. Op de laatste bladzij van de Schakel vind je ons contact nummer. Bij de een of de ander is er altijd wel een kopje koffie klaar. Zaterdag 13 of 20 Augustig 12 uur s middags lunch met elkaar bij Angora. Corrie zal een ieder hier over bellen. Ook moet er het een en ander over de Schakel worden geregeld. Woensdag 26 October om 10 uur is er een Koffie morgen in de Marist Hall Peat Street, tegen over Cullinane College. A.u.b. iets mee brengen voor bij de koffie $2.-pp voor de huur van de zaal. Blijf je voor lunch neem dan je broodje mee. Zoals gewoonlijk is er biljarten, klaverjassen, Rummicup of gewoon een praatje. k Wens jullie ieder een gezellige winter verder(ja toch, lekker bij de kachel, een pan Hutspot, Erwtesoep of Siepelsju (hasjee) zeggen wij in Friesland. Zelf ga ik naar warmere oorden (hoop ik)., om ons eerste achterkleinkind te bewonderen en te verwennen. Tot de volgende keer. Hartelijke groeten ook namens bestuur en leden aan alle Hollandse Kiwis.

3 Templeton Flaxmill Heritage Museum In 1985 prior to the Templeton Family reunion to be held in Riverton, Southland I was taken to visit many of the family historical sites. One site was a farm shed at Otaitai Bush which was once part of the Templeton flaxmill, a good part of the original machinery was still in place such as the stripper [which strips the vegetation from the blades of flax] at the back of the building, but motors and the scutcher were missing. [The scutcher dresses the fibre from the stripped flax removing all the unwanted material which is called tow]. Following the reunion in 1986 much discussion about restoration of the mill took place within the family spear-headed by The Hon. Hugh Templeton. This Flaxmill was originally sited at the mouth of the Waimatuku River and operated by the five Bennett Brothers till about 1909, [Richard Bennett being my Grandfather hence my interest in this mill.] In 1911 William Templeton brought the Otaitai Bush property complete with the flaxmill which was moved to the present site. Over the years this mill was a profitable business operated by three generations of the Templeton family till a decline in flax based products which had been replaced by synthetic material forced the mill to close in 1972, the family then through hard work converted the swamps and sand hills into very profitable farms. The Templeton Family Heritage Trust was established in 2000 and much hard work began, motors to be sourced and the building brought up to Council building code standard suitable for the public. One piece of vital equipment needed to have a full working museum was the scutcher. Desmond Templeton was fortunate to locate one at Otanemomo, near Balclutha that his father once operated, once this scutcher was in place the flaxmill was again fully operational. On Sunday 14th November, 2004, Clutha/Southland M.P. The Hon. Bill English officially opened the Templeton Flaxmill Heritage Museum which is recognised by the Historic Places Trust and is the only working flaxmill still on its original site. This is a family operated business with Desmond Templeton at the head assisted by his wife Janice, sons Ewan and Vaughan and other family members. April 2011 saw the family gather again to celebrate 100 years on the land at Otaitai Bush; I had the privilege of being invited to join this amazing family and watch the flaxmill operating again. The final product fibre and tow from the processed flax is sourced for experimental and scientific purposes as to possible future uses as well as being in demand for art and craft work. The species of flax found in the South is Phormium Tenax. The Maori name for flax is Harakeke. The Flaxmill Museum is on the Southern Heritage Trail, many school groups and visitors pass through the doors where they are given a comprehensive history of flax and a demonstration of how a flaxmill works.

4 Promotional Trip Through The South Island Everything is going very well with the Dutch Connection Ons Museum en Cultureel Centrum. We re making good progress with the new Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom Trust (TANS), which we joined in If you d like to receive the next TANS Newsletter which has stories about the Nederlanders in New Zealand send an to You ll get an update of where we re at. We ll also you our initial Exhibition Designs, which were finished just a few weeks ago. Everybody thinks they re stunning! To tell Dutch people in the South Island more about the Dutch Connection, we decided on a road trip to visit the main cities there. Until now we had only been to Christchurch a few times, to talk to the members of the Club there. Lots of Nederlanders elsewhere were not aware of what we re establishing in Foxton. We were well received in Nelson, Blenheim, a shaky Christchurch (at 3am with a 4.1 quake), Dunedin, Balclutha, Invercargill. Right now, we re in Invercargill. We re enjoying a balmy 2 degrees, but at least it is dry! We kicked off our tour in Nelson on 15 July, together with our Ambassador, Arie van der Wiel. We started at the Abel Tasman statue where the Nelson Mail took some photos for a newspaper article. After that there was a Nelson Provincial Museum lunch to talk about activities for 2012 (370 years since Tasman s discovery). At 2 o clock the presentation started, and everybody was impressed with what was displayed and explained. The meeting ended with a meal of mutton bird and crayfish, kindly brought by a Ngati Tumatakokiri representative (the tribe that met Tasman in 1642), Doug Huria. One of the VIPs who attended was Deputy Mayor Ali Boswijk, who is married to the son of Eelco Boswijk senior who set up Nelson s local coffee institution (and a hive of Dutch Activities for many years ) Chez Eelco. Other VIPs included Addo Mulder who organised the Tasman statue, and Robert Jenkin who set up the Tasman diorama for the Takaka Museum. After Nelson we left for Christchurch, where we had a bigger crowd of some 40 people. The Ambassador had joined us again, so that he could show his support for both the Museum Project and for the people of Christchurch who are going through difficult times. One of the highlights of the Christchurch trip was receiving a Hindeloopen clock for the Huiskamer in our Museum from Truus Ouwekerk She will also organise a Koffiemaand session in November, together with Tiny de Winter. One of the things we wanted to achieve with the South Island Tour, is to sign people up to organise Dutch Coffee Get-Togethers in November, and talk about the Dutch Connection and do some fundraising for us. We achieved that goal splendidly in all the cities we visited. De Schakel Augustus/September

5 The Dutch Connection - Promotional Trip Through The South Island - vervolg The South Island will come alive in a typical Dutch way in November. You can read more about Koffiemaand in the next Schakel. In Dunedin we had a session with Olga Kitchenman s coffee group, and in Balclutha with Peter Homan s Klaverjasclub. On both occasions we received items for our Museum Collection, including a hutkoffer that travelled with Gree Dekkers on the Waterman, and correspondence with Nederland from Balclutha through familie van Rooijen who also gave us a matteklopper! It looks like we ll get the materials for a Dutch barbershop from Invercargill, where a Kapper set up shop to introduce the latest European hairstyles in the 1950s. We still have one more presentation to make in Blenheim, in café Raupo, which is owned by Marcel Roos. It is a very stylish building that serves an excellent coffee, so we re looking forward to that. The purpose of this trip was not to collect money or items but rather to promote the Museum. But the best thing was that we ve made a lot of good friends who will remain involved with the Museum. We re making our Dutch Connections come alive! The next stage for our Promotional Tour will be the North Island. Keep an eye out for us. We ve got lots of exciting For now Thanks to all those wonderful Dutch people in the South who showed us what Southern Dutch hospitality is all about! Kees Zegwaard and Arjan van der Boon (From the South Island, in a camper van that gets icy on the inside at night. As our breath freezes on the windows Cold But fun. And very rewarding!)

6 50 years in New Zealand by Kees Dorresteijn - part 3 The night of my first football practice, was a great experience for me to learn about one of New Zealand s most important sports activities. When we arrived at the Featherston football clubhouse, I was introduced to the two coaches. One was the local doctor and the other coach was a dentist. For a warm-up we went for a run around the football field. The first thing that struck me was the height of the goal posts, and when I got closer I noticed a heap of straw tied around the bottom of the goal posts. The biggest surprise came when I saw the football, that s when I went over to the bloke who had taken me to football and asked him what they had done to the ball, because I said, that I never seen such a funny shaped ball. This was all of course before the days of television. He looked at me and said, that I had told him, that I had played football in Holland. I said that we played with a round ball, not an egg shaped ball like this one. Then he clicked and laughed, and said, that I had played soccer and that was a girl s game, that s where they cuddle and kiss each other when they score a goal. Then is when I found I had to learn how rugby foot ball was played and where my place would be in the team. I was to be a lock and they showed me my place in a scrum and when I was told how a scrum was formed, first the three in the front row and then the two locks. I was to put my arm around the other lock and then the scrum would bend down and the two locks put their heads between the bums of the players in front and with my other hand, I was to get hold of the player in front where ever I could get hold of him. It made me think at first if I had got myself in the wrong team of players. A couple of days later I went to the local shop to get all my football gear, boots, shorts and jersey, with the right team colours. Some weeks later, a friendly, pre-season friendly match was organised. A team from Upper Hutt police training school was going to play against our team. I was to watch the first half and play in the second half. I said to the coaches, after I had watched the first half that I was not going to take part in the second half. It looked to me more like a battle field than a game of football. One of the players had knocked out one of his front teeth and several had bloody faces and grazed legs from the hard surface, because we had not had any rain for a long time and the ground was as hard as concrete. The coaches said that I would be all right once I warmed up and if anything happened to me they would fix me up between them seeing one of them was a doctor and the other one a dentist. So I did go on to play in the second half and I touched the ball once. I had seen in the first half, that the game was a bit like passing the parcel, except everyone wanted the ball and it looked like both teams were on top of the player that had the ball. More about the football later. Around this time it was also that I decided to take a trip into Wellington. It was on a Thursday and I wanted to do some shopping and exploring. I took the train from Featherston to Wellington and my first port of call was going to be at the Netherlands Embassy, but to my surprise I found a notice on the door that said Closed: Hemelvaartsdag (Ascension day). This is something that is not celebrated in New Zealand like in the Netherlands, neither is Pinksteren (Pentecost). This is an advantage for the staff working at the Embassy to get a few extra days off during the year. After I spent some time in the city, I was ready for a nice cup of coffee, but I could not find a single place where one could buy a cup of coffee. So before I got back to the railway station I thought I would call in at the Waterloo Hotel and try my luck for a cuppa. The Waterloo Hotel was in those days one of the biggest buildings in Wellington. When I asked if I could buy a cup of coffee, the lady said to me You mean you want a pot of tea, Sir. I said that this was not what I meant, but it looks like, that is what I will have to settle for. I got on a tray a nice big pot of tea, enough tea for two cups, cup and saucer, milk jug, sugar bowl and even a biscuit. All in all it was a good alternative. By playing football, I soon made some friends and one day I was asked by the person that had picked me up for my first training session, to come with some other fellows of the football team to go to Wellington to see a couple of American singers. If I remember well, they were Jim Mc Daniels and Bobbie Vee. Bobbie Vee sang Rubber Ball. Six of us piled in an old Chevrolet, which had bald tyres, with some of them the canvas showing. I was sitting in the back seat and on the floor were about half a dozen flagons filled with water, because to get over the Rimutaka hill, we had to stop several times to top up the radiator which was leaking water. Sometimes it looked like we were in a steam engine when the cap of the radiator was removed. On the way back we had to stop at a service station, not to get petrol but to fill up the flagons with water again. De Schakel Augustus/September

7 50 years in New Zealand - part 3 - continued The car did not have any working indicators or a brake-light; the driver just put his arm out of the window and gave the traffic signals, which was quite legal. Those days, there were many old cars with lots of defects on the road. To get a new car, was very difficult, with long waiting lists, even if you had the cash to pay for it. When you were lucky enough to get to the top of the list for a new car, you had to have a trade-in. That gave the car dealer extra revenue. New cars had a set price and sometimes second hand cars with low mileage and in good condition were sold for more then the price of a new car of the same make. Another way to obtain a new car was if one had overseas funds. One needed about half of the price of the car you wanted to purchase in overseas funds. When I first arrived in New Zealand I was approached by a car salesman if I had overseas funds. At that time I could not quite follow what he was on about and I did not want to drive around in a new car while lots of people were on a waiting list for years to get a new car. I decided to buy a second hand car when I had saved up enough money. It was a mark two Ford Consul, it had done 57,000 miles and it had just one owner. All these particulars were always very important when buying a second hand car. I enjoyed my time playing football, although I must say I was not much of a rugby player, but the friendship was excellent and on the weekends, if there was no football, I went with some of the team mates, speed boating, fishing or catching flounders in Lake Wairarapa with a drag net, etc. I remember going to the pictures the first time, it was called the flicks then, the name of the film was Suzy Wong. It was a naughty film, but it was heavily censored and it had big write ups in the papers, because New Zealand was not ready yet for seeing too much flesh or bedroom scenes. A lot later a lady from Australia (Germaine Greer) used the word bullshit in public and she got fined eighty dollars. Although in the pubs and in the work place, plenty of swearing was heard, so long there were no females around. Before the film started the Queen would appear on the screen and God Save the Queen was played and everybody would stand to attention. Lots of advertising before the main film and there was also a half-time break so that you could buy an ice cream or have a quick smoke. Back to some more football experience. As the competition started, so did the rain and the football field in Featherston soon became a mud pool - at the end of the game it was sometimes hard to see who the players were in your own team. It reduced the injuries, except for some players with mud in their eyes. When we played at home and the game was finished, we were quick to get to our changing room and have a shower. There were only four big shower roses and then with two teams at the same time, that could be a bit cramped at times. It was no use to wait that some of their team mates had finished, because after about ten minutes the hot water would run out. At the end of the first football season, our team had a return game with the team that had visited Featherston at the beginning of the season (my first game). A bus full of players and supporters went to Upper Hutt. I can t remember much about the game, but the social after the game was interesting. First there was a post mortem about the game, by the two captains and some other speeches and jokes by the coaches. There was a big spread of food on the table, like buttered bread, saveloy sausages, with plenty of tomato sauce, pickled onions in malted vinegar, cakes and plenty of beer. I was not used to many of the above ingredients except for a few cakes. After one glass of beer, I found it more interesting to watch some of the blokes how they could down so many glasses of beer. The result was of course on our way home the bus driver had to stop the bus a couple of times to let several blokes off the bus to relieve the pressure. They would be standing in a row on the side of the road while other traffic would sound a friendly toot. We had our end of season social with the handing out of the trophies and the speeches regarding the quality football some had presented, the great tries that were produced. My name was not mentioned, because I had not done anything worth mentioning. I still received a cup for the most improved player, from knowing nothing about rugby foot ball to get to know a little bit. After the milking season on the farm, we agreed that I would be better off to go back to work in the building industry and I went back to Carterton, the same place were I started after my arrival in New Zealand. On the Friday evenings I would still go to the farm for our usual meetings with the family of the five brothers. Friday evenings had been a get together for the brothers over the twelve months I had been in NZ and I more or less became part of the family. The farming family had also enlarged their own family by another son since my arrival. To be continued De Schakel Augustus/September

8 Henk den Hartog ( ) - Flower Man Extraordinaire Before immigrating to New Zealand for the Dutch horticultural companies Bothof in Utrecht. Upon arrival he New Zealand. After some odd jobs, German Embassy in Belmont, Lower of Wellington Hospital. in 1960, Henk den Hartog worked Van Staveren in Aalsmeer and could not find work in this field in Henk designed the garden of the Hutt and maintained the gardens He imported Pokon en Chrisal from the Netherlands, because there was no such product for sale in New Zealand at that time. In the early 70 s he was invited by Turners & Growers to work for them as Manager of the Flower Division. (Harvey and later son Jack Turner were the great inspiration sources to develop the Chinese gooseberry to the world famous, successful Kiwifruit.) By determination and pertness Henk has increased the sale of cut flowers in New Zealand to such an extend that by the end of the 70 s cut flowers were also being sold on street corners, by greengrocers and grocery shops, and the sales had grown from 3 million to 20 million. Henk den Hartog played a rol in the Southern Flora, in the origin of the Northern Flower Growers Association and organisation of National Flower Growers conferences. Henk was the winner of the 1999 Floriculturist of the Year Award, because he was instumental in establishing the voluntary flower promotion levy scheme for the New Zealand market. Through Henk s determination and nagging for a Dutch auction clock to stimulate fair auctioning of flowers in New Zealand, only after his retirement Turners and Growers installed a Dutch Clock, which has been officially put in use by the then ambassador de Bijll Nachenius. During this ceremony the old Turner tipped Henk on the shoulder with the words: Henk, you ve got it now, at last. We should have done this years ago. Turner died in 2005 and the flower division at present is called Floramax, with André van der Kwaak the national director. Henk still is closely associated with André and Floramax. Henk de Hartog was one of the founders of the Flower Council of New Zealand. For over 17 years Henk was active in the management of the New Zealand Nursery Association and he still has an advisory roll in the Flower Promotion New Zealand organisation. Henk is de father of the New Zealand bulb growing industry. In his early years in New Zealand he imported bulbs from Holland, which s quality suffered from the transport and primitive cooling methods. To prevent more quality loss he was advised by Dutch bulb organisations to grow his own bulbs in New Zealand with Dutch material. To his wife s horror, he imported a container of planting material, a bulb-planting-machine, with which he started growing bulbs near Gore (South Island). Subsequently this prompted more Dutchmen in New Zealand to carry on this initiative and still the Netherlands is the big inspirator for innovation in the bulb growing industry and other horticultural activities in New Zealand. Nowadays New Zealand bulbs are being exported all over the world, also into the Netherlands to allow this country to present fresh flowerbulbs throughout the year. To keep in touch with the latest modernizations in this field, Henk den Hartog, who did not have a computer at home, visited yearly the HortiFair in Amsterdam to come home with innovative ideas for the New Zealand horticultural development; also after his retirement. Personally, many times he took groups of New Zealanders in this branch to the Netherlands on so called learning trips, like his Horti-trips to the Floriade 1992 and For years he has tried to inspire and encourage the New Zealand government and industrial horticultural organisations to participate in this world show. At present New Zealand produces yearly about 70 million flowers and related articles, a for this country acceptable amount, which however sharply contrasts with the Netherlands, growing 9 billion and exporting yearly 8 billion of these products as top producers of technologically excellent products of constant high quality. Henk believed New Zealand still can learn much from the Low Countries at the other side of the globe. For his dedication to the flowers related trade between the Netherlands and New Zealand and all of the above, on his 80th birthday, 10 July 2011, the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands decorated Henk with the medal and ribbon of the Knight of the Orde of Oranje Nassau, a Dutch Royal decoration, signed by HM Queen Beatrix. Henk had been ill for some time and sadly passed away on Friday, 29th of July. De Schakel Augustus/September
