The spring festival Bloemencorso Bollenstreek is canceled this year due to the corona pandemic. That is why the organization is going to distribute tulips to the residents of the municipalities between Haarlem and Noordwijk.
In this way, the organization wants to put residents in the limelight. In recent weeks they could be nominated by family, friends and acquaintances.
In Haarlem, 75 bunches of tulips will be handed out by volunteers on Sunday. “I nominated my neighbor Lenie because she takes such good care of her husband who has Alzheimer’s. She does that with a lot of wisdom, pleasure and she is always cheerful”, says volunteer Wim Kok.
“The flowers go to people who have worked very hard for something or have a special bond with the parade. But also to people who are ill or, for example, to catering entrepreneurs who have had a very hard time”, says Jorieke Exler, one of the coordinators. of the action.
