Dear Alliance Française Members and Friends,
We hope that everyone is doing well and had the best holidays possible. Happy New Year 2021! Bonne Année à vous tous! Although we have struggled through the Covid-19 virus and confinement, we can look forward to a happier and healthier 2021. Thank you for your continued support and interest in the Alliance Française d’El Paso. Un grand Merci to everyone who joined us for the virtual Apéritif/Toasting in the New Year via ZOOM on January 2, 2021. It was a pleasure to see you again!
Our Board of Officers has been organizing some activities for the first quarter of the new year, such as the Beginner and Intermediate French classes starting on January 25; the virtual party for La Chandeleur / Candlemas to include the flipping of French crêpes on February 2; the streaming of a French movie to our members also in February; and a book club, whose first novel will be about World War II in France; we will discuss it on March 27, at the end of Le Mois de la Francophonie/ Francophone Month. We look forward to your participation at our events and then, in person when we can return to normal.
