Dear members and visitors,
The new year is already well underway, up till now we have already had 4 periods with quite some Nicolas Appert activities that were both informative and fun. On 25 February a board change took place and we were glad to welcome three new boardmembers : Jens Riggeling, Floor Schreuders en Marise Hop. The general meeting, held because of our board change, was attended by a great number of members. This high number of attendees and their great input during this meeting were highly appreciated by us. After our new members had been officially installed it was time for a drink. It was great that so many members but also other student associations joined us this evening.
We, Board of Nicolas Appert, hope that we can make 2014 another good year with many entertaining activities.
One of our first activities has already taken place. On 27 February we had our department drink which was because of this time of year of course entirely dedicated to ‘carnaval’. During this entire evening De Kookcie, together with Tapcie, served us tasty snacks and drinks.
On 4 March a group of food technologists visited Loders Croklaan Wormerveer. On the same day we had the T3 party, an annual party which is organized by a great number of other study associations in Wageningen. Furthermore, and this is certainly not unimportant, on 14, 15 and 16 March our annual Nicolas Appert weekend took place, this year a large group of food technologists stayed at a cosy camping farm in Drenthe. During this weekend they played crazy games, partied a lot and did various activities, however most important it was a great opportunity for our members to get to know each other a lot better.
Also for the upcoming period we have various attractive activities on the agenda, some of the highlights will be a fancy dinner, the annual beerolympics and a field trip to Yakult, all of which very interesting and fun.
On behalf of our board, I wish you good luck with the upcoming study period and I hope you will join us in all our activities to enrich your time in Wageningen both socially and professionally.
Hope to see you soon!
President of Nicolas Appert
