CSF: JANUARY NEWSLETTER 2016
6th January 2016 - 20th January 2016
Hello Everyone and a Happy New Year to you!
January is often a month of good intentions – New Year’s Resolutions and all that. On a broader scale we will all be hoping that 2016 brings some peaceful resolutions to the conflict going on in some parts of the world. We also look forward to the continued increase in the advances made in medical science. Ergo, a happy and healthy 2016!
Turning closer to home, here’s what you can expect in the immediate future.
First of all our Annual Christmas Market at St Jean Pla de Corts on 6th December was very successful. The Tombola took €240 which will be divided between La Ligue and CSF. Our cards and calendars also sold well. On the books and everything else we took €207. An amazing result and our thanks must go to all who supported and helped on the day.
There are just two Drop-Ins this month:
Wednesday 6 January – Céret – 10.30-12
Pablo’s Bar in the Place Pablo Picasso. Come and have a coffee and chat with CSF members.
Monday 18 January – Laroque – 10.30-12
At the Café des Artistes you can buy a coffee and exchange your paperbacks
Wednesday 20 January CSF Sud de France AGM L’Oliveraie – Carcassonne
