The last Book Club meeting of the year was held on June 18th at the Fantin Latour Restaurant in Grenoble. A big thanks to Michèle Wanneau for leading the Book Club this year!
The group decided that the top three books read this year were:
1 – The Help by Kathryn Stockett
2 – The Paris Wife by Paula Mc Lain
3 – The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford
This year’s Easter Egg/Treasure Hunt was a great success. It was held on Sunday, April 1st, at the Centre Théologique in Meylan. Kira Froude, our VP of Children’s Programs, did an excellent job planning and leading this event.
The party started off with the children making Easter Bunny bags, so that they would have something in which to carry all of their candy and treasure. Afterwards, the children scurried all over the grassy park area in search of their hidden treasure. Everyone seemed happy with their finds. And, in case they didn’t have enough sweets to eat, we celebrated with a goûter/snack of yummy homemade treats brought by the parents. The party ended with the children planting assorted vegetable seeds in small pots. It was a dirty job, but Kira and baby Ann were up to the challenge.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this event. We look forward to another fun Easter party again next year!
