‘An extraordinary person, an example for so many.’ This is how Fred Veenstra, Mayor of the municipality De Fryske Marren described Frits de Jong. Frits received his decoration from the Mayor: he was appointed Member in the Order of Oranje Nassau. ‘Usually I´m a man of many words but right now I´m totally lost for words’, was the reaction Frits gave when he received this surprise at the end of an exceptionally fine performance by the Fryske Quadrille.
