Events for April

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.

Petanque february 21th

Written by Céline Thiria no comments

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”.

A CHANCE AT GETTING RICH

 

The Charlotte Alliance Française organized last Sunday a super nice get together around the theme of “Crèpes”:  those very thin pancakes which bear only a very vague resemblance to American pancakes.
