Stratford NewsUncategorized Stratford awarded 70th Anniversary Dutch-Canadian Friendship Tulip Garden SHARE ON: Justin Sweeney, contributor, Monday, Oct. 26th, 2015 File image Stratford is getting a new garden, but it’s not just any garden. It’s a 70th Anniversary Dutch-Canadian Friendship Tulip Garden. Only 140 are being given out across Canada. The gardens are a way to celebrate the first gift of 100,000 Dutch tulip bulbs sent to Canadians in 1945. They were a symbol of appreciation for the role Canadian soldiers played in the liberation of the Netherlands. The garden will be planted next Saturday, November 7th, at 2:00pm at the Dutch Memorial Garden at the intersection of Huron, William and Mornington streets. All are welcome to attend.
