The same happy faces: Netherlands & Belgium celebrate AWD.

Saturday the 7th of September was the day that members in the Netherlands celebrated their Awareness Day like we did in Toronto earlier this year. The weather a little cooler, no dragon dances and no helicopter but the same happy faces in these green shirts. Some 130 members from the Netherlands and Belgium left our TTCS Centre in Helmond in a colourful parade to the city centre to do lots of sets, to have fun and to make people aware of the arts we practice. At noon we returned to our Centre to celebrate the 1st Anniversary of the Grand Opening of our Centre. We served a very delicious lunch and among the participants were neighbours of the Centre, friends, family and two politicians of the City of Helmond. There also was a demo, a testimonial, live music (Portuguese fado) and again so many happy faces. What a beautiful day but also what a beautiful way.
