Activities » Soiree

Monthly Program & Potluck: Members are invited to a once-monthly Saturday evening soiree hosted by an Alliance Française member in their home. An RSVP is required as space may be limited. The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. and ends by 10 p.m. or earlier. Members and guests bring a food item and drink to share and there are tables available for both French and English language conversations during dinner. After dinner a short program is presented by a knowledgeable member or other resource person, followed by questions and discussion. Social time continues until 10 p.m. following the program.

Facebook Page: Our chapter’s dedicated Facebook Page Coordinator posts daily in French, and occasionally in English, to share bits of French history and culture. You might find anything from a musical interlude by Saint- Saëns to a piece on film stars Marion Cotillard or Brigitte Bardot to the cuisine of Tunisia.
