Bastille Day events

I was unable to attend the Alliance Francaise de Toledo Bastille Day, which I miss all  the more after viewing the photos, but I did make it to the Thursday, July 14 celebration of the Detroit Alliance at the Detroit Country Club in Grosse Pointe.  It was quite an elegant affair with a champaigne toast and renditions of both the U.S. and French national anthems.  Entertainment included music, a vocalist, and a mime.  I found the mime a bit scary, but enjoyed his attempts at singing.  The Wayne County executive gave a short speech, which his daughter, a French teacher, translated into French.  A couple from the French-American Chamber of Commerce indicated a desire to attend some of our Toledo Alliance activiities.
