French Club

Emma Benton, Staff Writer

Le Cercle Français (French Club) is a group of students interested in French language and culture.  Each of our meetings includes speaking activities in French and information about the culture and people of the French-speaking worlds; plus music, videos, foods and games.  We are meeting twice every month (on Mondays now – our fall schedule was a little less structured), and also sponsoring a French event each month.  In October, we celebrated Halloween with a “Fête des Fantômes” – an event with French music, treats and Halloween-themed French games.  We celebrated a “Fête d’Hiver” in December, with the traditions of yule log cakes, holiday games and songs.  January’s event is a French movie night, and February’s will be a Mardi-Gras themed event.
