Juin 2017

Cher/e  Community Member,

L’hiver est là mais ne déprimez pas ! Le retour de notre ciné-club (14 juin), les cours de Laurence ou le club de lecture (28 juin) sont des remèdes tout indiqués contre la monotonie ambiante. Et si cela ne suffit pas, venez boire un verre et célébrer la fête de la musique avec nous le 21 juin prochain !

Winter is here but don't worry! The return of our Ciné-club (14th June), Laurence's new classes, and the Club de Lecture (28th June) are the needed remedies to the winter blues. And if that's not enough, come and have a drink and celebrate the Fête de la Musique with us on 21st June!
