Nos profondes condoléances

C'est avec beaucoup de douleur que nous avons appris le décès de notre cher ami et camarade de cours, Bob Mitchell

Notre communauté ne sera jamais la même sans Monsieur le Maire qui nous charmait tous  pendant plus de 10 ans avec son humour et son esprit brillant. Nous présentons   nos sincères condoléances à       Lucy et toute la famille Mitchell.
Merci infiniment Jan !

Avec chagrin, nous vous annonçons le départ en retraite de notre fidèle comptable, Jan Gonder. 

Since 2002, Jan has managed accounts for the Alliance Française with an eagle eye. Thanks to her, our organization is in good financial shape.

We greatly appreciate her dedication to our organization and everything that she has done for us during the last 16 years. We greatly appreciate her being such a long-standing member of our organization. More than a colleague, Jan is a true friend and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.
