Ribbon Day


'And it pleased Her Royal Highness the Queen to knight in the Order of Orange......'

And if it is your name which follows than today you have been ordered to the city hall to receive by the mayor a ribbon of the Order of the Knights of Orange for your excellent acts of duty and voluntary work in society. Today is the day before Queens day, so many people receive a ribbon (has been on the radio all day) and tonight it's queens night.

This is a nice tradition and I think a great honour to be awarded with some of these beautiful ribbons by the Queen.
I guess your Queen is a beloved person.
Hey Marcel... is the Queen beautiful?Can you give me some hint about a link to see her pictures?Thanks dear friend!

Best Regards
Léia :-)
