La Trompette
Alliance Française de Grosse Pointe
Lovely crêpe celebration at Cornwall Bakery
Chef Freeman and his team wowed the wall-to-wall crowd for our

mingling with the crowd in an intimate setting.

Alliance Française
The last 10 week term of our French
classes begins March 21 for the
beginner classes on Mondays and
March 29 for Intermediate and
Advanced classes on Tuesdays.
Spotlight on Beginner Conversation
(French immersion): in the current
class, each student has adopted a
francophone African country and
they speak every week on
different things they have learned
about it. So, Irene Lentine (above)
brought in a spectacular carved
ivory tusk from la République
Démocratique du Congo for
everyone to touch and marvel
over. It was generously loaned to
her by Christiane Stein whose
parents lived in what was then
called the Belgian Congo. Check
out our website for more
information and registration forms.
Cercle Littéraire
Sometimes, we must change the order of the books
we read. We’ve switched to l’Etranger by Albert
Camus for our March 12th read because it is
background info for the April 23 book: Meursault
Contre-Enquête by Kamel Daoud. May 21 our
selection is Le Malade Imaginaire par Molière.
Discussions take place on a Saturday
at 10am and are usually over by
11:30. Discussions are led in
French. We welcomed newcomer
James Combs last month! For more
information, please contact Sarah
Ollison at
Marche du Nain Rouge
Unfortunately, we had to cancel the bus and t-shirts orders for the Nain Rouge March 20th
because not enough people signed up. The event
will still be taking place downtown however.
Those who paid were refunded their monies.
Celebrate la Francophonie in March!
The whole month of March our
nation celebrates everything
French….our ethnic roots, food,
beverages, clothing, objets d’art,
les films, les livres, la musique, la
langue et patati et patata.
Tell us how, in some way, YOU
celebrated Francophonie this month
and if you include a photo, that would be even better!
We would love to share how we live and love and
laugh with Francophonie in our Trompette. Send to with Francophonie in
the subject line. Merci beaucoup!
Interested in an AF Board Position?
Step up! Step up! We are actively looking for people
to fill positions on the Alliance Française de Grosse
Pointe Board in May. Your board plans the activities
for the year and we brainstorm about future ideas.
And we are a congenial group ;}. If interested, please
send us a resumé to
and tell us why you would like to volunteer to be on
the board. We meet once a month and have need of
organizers, computer skills, party planners and, of
course, those with a passion for French!
