A Roundup of AGLR News
To Be Or Not To Be? April 23 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, which we think calls for a celebration. Remember - All the World's a Stage and so if there are any would-be Hamlets or Ophelias out there, please step into the spotlight with ideas to help us 'make merry'.
The AGLR bridge group continues to play every Tuesday, usually in Sète's Grand Hotel. Frank Cunnane turned up trumps by giving each player a copy of his booklet on mastering this difficult game. Happy Hours (cocktails) take place the first and fourth Tuesday of each month at Hotel de Paris in Sète, while Ole Pedersen takes us around the countryside with a new and interesting hike each week. Weekly Thursday coffee mornings at Brasseria Victor Hugo always draw a crowd. Francoise, our monthly luncheon coordinator is currently abroad. In her absence, suggestions for a venue (and a coordinator) are most welcome. "Cooking fun" with Benedicte will be announced shortly.
