Koffie Kletz: An Empire Built on Windpower

Saturday Feb 9 10:00am
Windmill Island Gardens
1 Lincoln Avenue

You may know that the Dutch were a world power during the Golden Age in the 17th century. Did you know that windmills powered their empire and allowed it to flourish? Join us on February 9 to learn how a wide variety of industrial windmills enabled a small nation to become a world superpower for over a century. We’ll get much of the story from Part 2 of the award-winning Dutch documentary ‘The Story of Dutch Windmills’.

Koffie Kletz at Windmill Island Gardens is a series of casual Saturday morning gatherings where community members learn about topics relevant to Dutch culture, Holland culture and Windmill Island Gardens. Each Kletz will feature a presentation and discussion time over coffee. These events are free to Windmill Island Gardens Members with a suggested donation of $5 for non-members.

Please let us know you’re coming by signing up at Eventbrite or by calling 616-355-1030.

Free to members, suggested $5 donation from non-members
