The Espanola Royal Canadian Legion Branch #39 and the Espanola Gardeners hope to see plenty of orange in flowerbeds throughout the town next Spring.
The two organizations have partnered together to promote the Liberation 75th Tulip Initiative to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Holland in 1945.
That year, the Dutch royal family sent 100,000 tulip bulbs to Ottawa in gratitude for Canadians having sheltered the future Queen Juliana and her family for the preceding three years during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands in the Second World War.
