BIENVENUE A L'ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE DE NAPA VALLEY

Dear Members:

On behalf of the AFNV Board I would like to wish you the best year possible in 2022.

During 2021 we have tried to share French language and culture with you to the best of our ability, and in spite of difficult times.

On that note, and with much regret, we were forced to cancel our "Fete de la Galette" scheduled for last Sunday, January 9 at the Napa Valley Yacht Club. However, we can look forward to meeting in person, at a better time in the future.

In the meantime, I would like to let you know that we will be showing a documentary entitled "Secrets de l'Elysée" via Zoom on Sunday, January 23 at 7:00pm.
The documentary will be entirely in French. It will describe the French president's residence known as the Palais de l'Elysée.
A discussion of the documentary film will follow.

In addition, I would like to let you know that a French film "Delicious"/"Delicieux" will be showing at the Cameo Cinema in Saint Helena January 28, 29 and 30. For more information visit their website:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Alliance Française de Napa Valley is observing all the CDC's recommendations. Since March 2020, we have cancelled all our in person events and classes. We are currently offering all our classes online via Zoom. We are also viewing French movies in a virtual theatre and having group conversations via Zoom.

The Napa Valley chapter was formed in 1987. Our goal is to share the spirit and culture of French-speaking countries through language courses, social activities and community outreach. People of all ages come to the Alliance to improve their language skills, to participate in French cultural activities and connect with people speaking the French language. You do not need to speak French to enjoy French culture here in Napa. We invite you to join us.
The Alliance Francaise's mission in the United States is to encourage and develop knowledge of the French language, French and Francophone cultures, and to foster cultural, intellectual and artistic exchanges between the USA and France and the French-speaking countries. Each Alliance Française is governed locally and is operated as an independent, non-profit, non-political, non-discriminatory organization.
