LEST WE FORGET
In the fall of 1945, Princess Juliana of the Netherlands presented the leaders in Ottawa, Canada with 100,000 tulip bulbs in appreciation for the safe haven that Holland's exiled royal family received during World War II, and in recognition of the role Canadian troops played in liberating the Netherlands.
This is especially meaningful for me because my Grandma Anna lived in the Netherlands in World War II where she met my Grandpa Michael, one of the Canadian troops!
