From the President

Chers Amis
I would like to send a big thank you to all who came along to see our French film La Famille Bélier.  The film lived up to the excellent reports we read about it and everyone enjoyed it immensely.  Refreshments were served to members and their guests on arrival and this provided a good opportunity to chat and meet new members.
Early in the month we had our second meeting of the French conversation group at the Tura Library.  Wolfgang provided an impromptu talk on renovations being carried out on an historic building in France.  The work being carried out includes all of the traditional trades including stone masonary, blacksmithing and carpentry and is done by volunteers using tools and work methods employed by the artisans who constructed the original building.  A big thanks to Wolfgang for a fascinating talk.  Next Friday morning Mareta will be giving us a talk about the history of early European settlement on the NSW South Coast.
Our next big event will be dinner at Ritzy’s at the end of May but unfortunately I will miss this as I will be en vacances in France.  More details about the dinner are provided below.  I wish you all well as winter sets in on the South Coast as I head off to Spring in France!

Amities, Robert McCombie
