FEBRUARY 2015 NEWSLETTER
- Our Famous Literary Quiz on 23rd January was a great success. We had an excellent turnout and a good time was had by all. Many thanks to the organisers and to the American Womens Group for their generous donation. You will find photos on our Facebook page and on our blog (for the latter you need to go to foal34.free.fr and click on « blog ». We have decided to try and get more traffic on these two media and hope to come up with some new ideas shortly.
- Upcoming event : a date to put in your diaries Friday 10th April, usual venue Espace Martin Luther King. Doors open at 6.30 pm so that you have time to pick up a glass of something before the event which starts at 7 pm. Remember the success of our event « Love Letters » in 2013.This time Foal will present a special reading of the comedy-cum-romance play Two Across by the American playwright Jerry Mayer which is in the same vein. Katharine Claringbull directing and Caroline Di Miceli and Adam Gauci taking the two roles. The reading lasts an hour which will leave plenty of time for a drink and a chat afterwards.
- New Books are now in the library, we placed a significant order to inaugurate our change of (temporary) premises. What is happening at City Hall ? As I believe you know, an audit of premises allocated to associations was commissioned. It was due to be handed in at the end of October 2014. The date has been moved back to end of March ! It will obviously take time to get some associations to vacate premises which they should not be using and then re-allocate them. However, Foal is in good position on the waiting list and the situation is being monitored closely.
- PARTY This year Foal will be celebrating its fifth anniversary. We have had plenty of vicissitudes during that time (and you have supported us through thick and thin, for which heartfelt thanks), but we are still going strong and this anniversary deserves a party ! The midday event will be held on June 20th. One of our board members has kindly suggested we hold the party in her large garden which contains a swimming pool if you need to cool off. Foal members only and their spouses will bring along food and Foal will provide the drinks and we hope, music. More details about this nearer the time but please put the date in your diaries. We have decided to hold a short Annual General Meeting beforehand to give you an overview of the past year.
