An announcement from Margret Dutton, Chair, ALL Advisory Council:
For the past several years, ALL has been a program of the Oregon State University Alumni Association.
There will be a change as of July 1, 2014 when ALL will become a separate organization
and will then apply for its own 501 C3 non-profit status.
We have had discussions with OSU's Division of University Relations and Marketing
and will establish a relationship with them as a sponsoring partner of ALL,
thereby maintaining a solid connection with the University.
Ongoing support from the Alumni Association will continue also.
Although this is a change, we want to assure our members that it will not have any practical effect
on our operations. We have always been a self-funded, peer-led organization
and will continue to offer the excellent schedule of ALL classes.

A Touch of Dutch Culture
Presenter and Dutch Native, Sander Hoekstra sent further information after his class on Thursday, April 17.
- Population ~ 70,000
- Many of the horses reside outside of the Netherlands.
- There are a lot of breeders in and outside The Netherlands.
Dutch site (in English): http://english.kfps.nl/
US breeders: http://www.friesianhorsesociety.com
Sander notes that he will have to ask people in the Netherlands about the influence of Spain on Dutch culture.
He cannot find anything when he googles this, so it must have been small. However, the influence of Napoleon was big, e.g. he introduced the metric system and laws.
Sander also recommended the PORTLAND DUTCH KONINGSDAG 2014 which is Sunday, April 27 from 3:30-6:30 pm in Portland, Oregon.
The link to that information is http://www.portlanddutch.com/
