SUMMER IN SÈTE
North America Day in Sète was the social event of our season - thanks to our wonderful hosts, Jacqueline and Ole, and many volunteers. Anyone with a gram of North American blood (or Jack Daniels) in their veins rallied around the Maple Leaf and Star Spangled Banner but the turnout of 50 guests was truly international. To a backdrop of live American music, a poolside apéro was followed by an all-American barbeque and quiz. The curtain finally came down after five aspiring young actors treated us to their own interpretation of Little Red Riding Hood.
Bastille Day - did you know that more than 20 countries celebrate their independence or national day in July? Much as we like a party we could only fit three on our calendar and so we naturally chose Bastille Day as the third. Accordingly, members celebrated 14 July on the roof terrace of Sète's Imperial Hotel with cocktails and tapas in our own private corner - and with by far the best view of the fireworks display. Vive la République!
Topping the Charts of the Festival St Louis program was Roger Bolt's fabulous group, Bad Girls Groove. It was quite an honour for a British group to be invited to perform in a traditionally French festival and appreciative crowds rocked the night away to their funky sounds in the town square. Word got around and equally enthusiastic welcomes awaited them at three standing room only concerts in the popular Café St Clair. Before leaving town, the BGGs invited AGLR members to meet them over cocktails in Hotel de Paris. Looking for fun and feeling groovy?
