CSF NEWSLETTER: NOVEMBER 2018
15th October 2018 - 25th October 2018
Those of you with a dog or a baby don’t have the luxury of waiting for a warm, sunny afternoon before you venture out. Dogs need a walk. Babies need to sleep. I’ve done the hour and half route-march with a pram but I’ll never be pulled along by a dog – not while I’m married to this husband anyway. Rain or shine, hang around indoors at this time of year and you miss the colours of autumn.
We had a very successful Autumn Ball on October 13th. We cleared just under €1500 before a donation of €200 to La Ligue as their share of the Tombola proceeds. A great result. Our thanks to everyone who came and supported us so generously and also to all our helpers who worked hard on the night to make this such a super evening.
CLICK HERE to download Touchlines, the CSF quarterly Newsletter. It is packed with information about CSF associations across France. You might be surprised to see what our friends get up to in other parts of the country!
As you probably know, The Connexion is a monthly newspaper and news website for the English-speaking expatriate community in France. If you have a look at this website you’ll see that they produce a calendar each year and give each of three charities, which includes CSF, €1 or thereabouts for every calendar bought. Just click on the calendar and order online. You’ll be helping us and perhaps adding an idea or two to your Christmas present list.
At the Drop Ins this month tickets for the Autumn Ball will be on sale
At Lizzie’s kitchen this month we have Ginny Martin showing us how to make Christmas wreaths. We will all have a chance to have a go ourselves and Ginny will bring the materials but if you have anything colourful in the garden like berries or hips, please bring them along. Talk to Maggie (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need to know anything.
