Fourth Wednesday Cafe et Conversation

Bavardons un peu!

C'est la semaine de la Francophonie!

The term Francophone started being used in the 1960s when Léopold Sédar Senghor, first president of Sénégal, and one of the founders of the Négritude movement used it consistently. He was the one who in 1962, pointed out the cultural aspect of the francophonie in an important article: « Le français langue de culture » or French, a cultural language.


The International Francophonie Day is organized by the Organisation internationale de la francophonie (OIF), whose mission is the promotion of the French language as an international language and of worldwide cultural and linguistic diversity in the era of economic globalization. This event started in 1998 as an occasion for the 70 states and governments of the OIF to celebrate their similarity - French - as well as their diversity. There are about 220 millions of French speaking in the world.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
