Only 2 more sleeps!

Can you believe it? Only more sleeps before Sinterklaas is in Cloverdale. Let's practice this important song... Sinterklaas is jarig..!

Dutch karaoke with English translation in this post.

It's Saint Nicholas birthday!
I'll prepare my shoe.
Hope that he will find it,
and reward me too!
I'll place in it some carrots,
and some hay I'm told.
Cause his loyal mare,
is worth it's weight in gold!

Can you believe it? Only 5 more sleeps!

Lets practice another song! Sinterklaasje kom maar binnen..! Dutch karaoke with English translation in this post.

Good Saint Nich'las is in langley once again!
With his horse and Pete from sunny Spain.
And even if he can't stay long,
we hope he'll stop to hear our song!
Dear Saint Nich'las, the door is open wide
for you and Pete to step inside!
And we're singing, voices ringing
and our hearts rejoice!
'Cause the Saint loves all, good girls and boys!
And we're singing, voices ringing
and our hearts rejoice!
'Cause the Saint loves all, good girls and boys!

See Sinterklaasje kom maar binnen.. in karaoke

Looking for volunteers! / Op zoek naar vrijwilligers!

Looking for Volunteers!

We are a group of dedicated Dutch volunteers who will welcome Sinterklaas on November 24th, 2018. The committee will have its first meeting on September 12th to start the planning.

We are looking for volunteers for the Sinterklaas committee. You can join the committee meetings and/or assist on one of the sub committees. We need assistance with the games committee and the Sint and Pieten crew.

The games committee would like to train one or two people this year, so they can take over the games next year.

There are a few positions with the Sint en Pieten crew. The crew will need artistic guidance for planning the performance.   They also need wardrobe support and assistance in makeup.  There is someone who will take the lead on this committee, so there will be guidance and help provided.
The time commitment is about one evening per week for this wonderful family event. We have lots of fun organizing this event, so we hope you will join us, creating memories for kids and adults alike.
 If you are interested in assisting in these exciting activities, please send an Email to Please tell us any previous volunteering experience, and why you are interested in joining the Sinterklaas committee.

Op zoek naar vrijwilligers!

Wij zijn een groep Nederlandse vrijwilligers die Sinterklaas verwelkomen op 24 november, 2018. Het committee begint op 12 september met de eerste meeting om ons jaarlijks Sinterklaasfeest te plannen.
Wij zoeken naar vrijwilligers voor de Sinterklaas committee. Je kunt onze committee meeting bijwonen en/of met één van de sub committees helpen. We hebben hulp nodig met de spelletjes committee en de Sint en Pieten crew.

Het spelletjes committee wil 1 of 2 meer mensen dit jaar trainen, om de planning en uitvoering van de spelletjes volgend jaar over the nemen.

De Sint en Pieten crew heeft ook een paar mensen nodig om te assisteren met de artistieke uitvoering, het organiseren van de kleding, en de make-up. Er is iemand die deze committee leidt, dus er is hulp en begeleiding.

Je bent ongeveer één avond per week bezig met deze activiteit van september tot eind november. Wij hebben veel plezier met het organiseren van dit feest. We hopen dat je meedoet, zodat we herinneringen kunnen creeren voor jong en oud.  Als je geïnteresseerd bent om met deze activiteiten te assisteren, stuur ons een email naar Beschrijf in je email wat voor vrijwilligerswerk je voorheen gedaan hebt, en waarom je ons wilt helpen met deze Sinterklaas committee.
