From the President

Chers Amis
What a great lunch we had at Waves Restaurant as our last French Food event of the year. Mike Warren has a full report later in this newsletter but I’d like to say a big thanks to Mike for his work in organising the day and formulating a very tricky multi-choice quiz which had us all scratching our heads. The main thing I got out of it was that, in future, I shouldn’t bother going to trip advisor in order to select a restaurant in Lyon. It lists 3,075 of them. 
You will be pleased to know that a modest portion of your subscriptions to our Alliance is being used to encourage the study of French in our local region. We have purchased some books to be awarded as prizes to outstanding students of French in the local schools which are members of our Alliance. These will be handed over to the schools (South Coast Anglican College, Eden Marine High School and Mumbulla School) in the next couple of days. 
There is only one more Alliance Francaise event for 2018 which, of course, is the annual Coupe D’Antibes and Christmas party which will be held at Mandeni Park on Sunday, 2 December. There will be a glass of bubbly and some Kir Royale on arrival for those attending so mark the day in your calendars. It’s always a great day so come along and join the fun. Full details are in the November edition of La Mouette or on the "Events" page of this website.
Amities, Rob McCombie
