From the President

Chers Amis
I would like to thank all of our members and their guests who attended our first French film night of the year, ‘L’Ecole Buissionniere’. This was a touching story of a young boy whose life was transformed when he left an orphanage in the city to live in the countryside. We had a capacity attendance and the film was enjoyed by all. If you missed it you can borrow the DVD from our Library, details about access are on page 2 of the May edition of La Mouette. Our next event is the concert of baroque music featuring the recorder group Lumiere which will be held at Coffee 22 Café in Pambula on 13 May. I hope to see you all there. Please put a note in your diaries about our Bastille Day celebrations this year to be held on Sunday, 14th July at Oaklands Events Centre. The Bastille Day celebrations are our flagship event each year and we always try to make it a memorable occasion. However, this year will be very special for our Alliance as we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of its establishment in Merimbula. We will mark the occasion with a number of performances to delight and entertain you including a headline act by Eliane Morel, a recording artist who will sing some classic French songs like ‘I Love Paris in the Springtime’. For further details please see Mike Warren’s item on page 2 of the May edition of La Mouette. 
Amities Robert McCombie
