The 2012 Halve Maen Award is granted to the past President and Founder of the Netherlands American Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Richard Sheinis and the outgoing President Mr. Bernard Vanderlande.
May 10, 2012 - PRLog -- The Halve Maen (Half Moon) was a Dutch East India Company ship which sailed into what is now New York harbor in September of 1609. Captained by Henry Hudson, the ship was looking for a western passage to China. As Hudson sailed up the river now bearing his name, he claimed the area for the Dutch and opened the land for settlers who followed. His voyage came some 10 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. The arrival of the Halve Maen gave the Dutch a significant role in establishing what would become a new nation based on personal freedom, tolerance and liberty.

In the spirit of Hudson’s great voyage, the 2012 Halve Maen Award is granted to the past President and Founder of the Netherlands American Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Richard Sheinis and the outgoing President Mr. Bernard Vanderlande for their role in founding and growing the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce of the South East. The achievements of the Chamber are the result of the continuous support of their members but also the combined effort of Richard Sheinis and Bernard Vanderlande.
