Hartelijk Welcom!

Welcome to the website for the Dutch Group of San Diego (Dutch San Diego). This group began in 2004 when I created a meetup group to meet other folks of Dutch Heritage and hopefully to learn some Dutch.

As a first generation American born of a Dutch mother, I wanted to connect with that part of my heritage more and hopefully learn the language. I enjoyed travelling in Europe and meeting relatives in the country.

I am not conversational in the language yet, practice and life continue to distract me, but I am making progress a little at a time and now we have an involved Dutch community in San Diego.

The Meetup Group – Dutch San Diego –  is still the core of the communication of events, but I thought it would be good to expand out a bit and obtain the webpage and post some information this way as well for those who are not Meetup Members.
