For the first time in ten years, more than six hundred Royal Awards were presented in Brabant during the ribbon ceremony. This relates to a total of 637 bars. There is no county where more tapes will be installed on Friday. Last year Brabant had 484 outstanding people.

Tilburg municipality is an anomaly, just as it was in 2023, with the number of beneficiaries this time being 38 people. The large number in the municipalities of Land van Kuijk, Mashurst, Meerijstad and Moerdijk, among others, is also striking.

Yvonne Jaspers
The most famous Brabander to be honored is Yvonne Jaspers. Born and raised in Boxtel, he became a Knight of the Order of Orange-Nassau. This was supposed to happen in her hometown of Lunen aan de Vecht, but the Farmer Face Wants woman and the Ronald McDonald Children's Fund ambassador were on vacation in Aruba. Her reaction was “honored and surprised” when she arrived at 6am (local time) Congratulations were received by phone. The program maker will receive medals later.

Highest award
The highest award in our province goes to Cees van Kempen from Nieuw-Vossemeer. He became a Knight of the Dutch Order of the Lion. A fitting tribute to this nature director who made his debut with the series “The Return of the Kingfisher, the Blackbird, and the Beaver.”

The advertising rooms (74) of Bergen op Zoom have also been awarded the title of “knight”. He was praised, among other things, for his writing and organizational qualities.

Here three people in one street received royal honors:

the reviewer
More Knights: Two men who made themselves important as rulers. They are Leandert den Brassem from Budel (56 years old), a water polo celebrity for decades, and Daniel Jansen from Reusel. The latter celebrated his fiftieth birthday on Wednesday, and has been active as a referee in amateur football for many years.

Janssen is a member of SV Brabant-Zuidoost. Two other members of this society were appointed members of the Order of Orange-Nassau: Tjeu Steijvers (83, Maarheeze) and Paul Janssen (82, Dommelen).

The city of Someren was also struck three times earlier on Friday. Three people were surprised on the same street: sisters Minne Verger-van den Teilar, Ine Leenders-van den Teilar and Emil Tönders. They have made themselves useful to society in various ways, just like all the other hundreds of Brabanders.

This could be in a club context: from the Volnetje Fishing Association in Lage Zwaluwe and the Petanque Littie or Littienie Association in Helmond to the De Grenszuukers Carnival Association in Baarle-Nassau. Or for mountaineering and mountain sports that have won great recognition from Rutger Elneke Schurmann from Etten-Lor and Roger Wassenberg from Valery.

Commitment to fellow human beings
There are also busy, committed people who are sick or disabled, or people who have not had much to spend for years. A few of them have been volunteers for sixty years. Many people in the (local) media were also surprised.

Hamdi Ozcan (born 1962) received a ribbon because, among other things, as head of the Al-Isra Mosque, he ensured that there was a good relationship between the Turkish and Dutch communities in Dongen.

Perhaps the earliest recognizable Brabander is Bert van Laarhoven (The Best, 91). Bart Swinkels, also from Pest, is the youngest 'happy' person at 39 years old. Moreover, many couples were honoured. The municipality of Gelze en Ragen was the only one with only women, four in total. A resident of Aws refuses the award: “I do not want to be ungrateful, but this attention does not suit me.”
