From the President

Chers Amis
This month’s big event was the French dinner at Waves restaurant. Having the event on a Sunday evening meant that we had the restaurant to ourselves. This turned out to be fortuitous as we had greater numbers than expected and packed the restaurant out. However, what should have been an enjoyable, carefree, evening was overshadowed by the bush fires at Tathra which have stunned our community as a whole and impacted on some of us directly.
Thankfully, our members living in the area seem to have been spared the worst, but for those who have had the experience of having a near-miss bushfire experience we know how upsetting even the threat of loss can be.
Let’s all celebrate our good fortune by coming to our next French Movie Night on 24th April (details on the Events page) and Café 22 on Sunday 13th May at 2.30pm to enjoy a concert by the “Lumière” ensemble of French and European, Renaissance and Baroque music - full details will be in next month’s La Mouette.
On a sadder note I have just learned that a Past President of our club, Rex Speller, has passed away. Jan & Neil Porter have recalled some memories of Rex on page 3 of the March La Mouette.
Amicalement, Rob McCombie
