Dear Alliance Française Member,


August is here, thankfully so.  This month has great potential for some more lazy days, in addition to interesting and even bizarre holidays.   Celebrating National Ice Cream Sandwich Day (Aug 2nd), and Watermelon Day (Aug. 3rd) should b...

Dear Alliance Française Member,

Summer is here in all its glory, and it is finally getting hot enough that we can start to complain about how hot it is. Time for sunscreen, daiquiris, and swim suits! And face masks, the breathable kind, preferably. Unfortunately the wav...

Hello AF Members!
 

Happy Day After Thanksgiving! While some of us didn't grow up with this tradition, we all can appreciate this holiday that celebrates family and friends and offers a moment to reflect upon all the good things in life. Here is what we have planned for...

Hello Dear AF Members!
 

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." wrote Albert Camus. He never even got a glimpse of North Carolina glorious fall colors.  Neither did he ever get an extra hour of sleep early November.  We do!  That's how lucky we are. So...
