Lovely event on Saturday for the French Alliance under the trees and by the horse pastures, for the celebration of Bastille day at Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill.
On behalf of Carolina Petanque, I'd like to thank all of those who participated in the Petanque and Picnic event with Charlotte's Alliance Française.
The weather was perfect, attendance was high, and we had a great time! We appreciate Alliance Française's interest co-hosting this event and furnishing the delicious desserts from Renaissance Bakery.
Dear Members: See what we've got for you for the month of June ! Let's celebrate the beginning of the Summer together !
On Thursday, January 28th, almost one week after the snow and ice storm descended on Charlotte and the surrounding area, several members of the Alliance Francaise of Charlotte participated in a chocolate tasting at The Secret Chocolatier in Ballantyne.

A FLURRY OF ACTIVITIES IN APRIL
The gracious and extremely able organizers of events at the Charlotte Alliance Française had our social calendar filled with wonderful activities.
First, a Sunday Picnic at Latta Park where a few couples and their children gathered for a belated Easter Egg Hunt. The adults sat around picnic tables on a blissfully mild afternoon, where it was good to live in Charlotte. The kids filled a large basket with their loot of plastic eggs and were rewarded with lovely chocolate rabbits and eggs, while all of us were rewarded with wonderful, melt-in-your-mouth apple tarts, graciously offered by Sylvain of Renaissance Bakery.
A recent Sunday of last February Carolina Pétanque and Alliance Française members met at Nevin Park, North of Charlotte. The weather was beautiful especially for that time of the year and let us enjoy a great afternoon playing pétanque. Around twenty people were playing on the 5 contiguous courts. If you have children, there is a nice modern playground close to the courts. Everybody can easily learn to play Pétanque. It is a French game that gives you the opportunity to socialize with other members of both organizations. Don’t hesitate and come to the next meeting, just to watch and why not to throw your first “Boule”.
