Here we are in June already and more and more we find ourselves staying indoors and rugging up to protect ourselves from winter’s cold fingers. Many of our members will soon be packing bags for their annual pilgrimage northwards for the European summer and Le Tour de France. But for those who are staying we have lots of upcoming events like the wine tasting at Mike and Lilias’ place and our extra special celebration of Bastille Day this year in which we are celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of the founding of our Alliance.
Details of these events are provided later in this newsletter. Book early so you don’t miss out.
I would also like to formally welcome the Eden Marine High School as a new member of our Alliance. This school now joins the South Coast Anglican College and the Mumbulla school as members of the Alliance Francaise de la Cote de Saphir. My own first contact with the Alliance Francaise was through the school I attended as a boy in Sydney and I am confident that this early connection with the Alliance played a part in my long-standing love of French language and French culture.
