    The library is amazing, and it was wonderful to get an overview of the art — so much more to go back and check out! Thanks to everyone who made it to the tour; you were a wonderful group. :)

    A quick reminder to please update your RSVP if you can't make it to this event because there is a long waiting list of folks who want to go. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing many of you in a few weeks.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
