Virtual Coffee Chat – Tuesdays 9:30-11:30

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and our desire to reduce its spread as much as possible, we're moving Coffee Chat into the virtual world. The bad news is that we don't get to see each other in real life, but the good news is people who are normally unable to attend Coffee Chat due to things like having a day job and other responsibilities might be able to join us here, since they might be working from home and on their computers anyway.

Digital Happy Hour – April 3

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and our desire to reduce its spread as much as possible, we're moving Happy Hour into the virtual world. Just because the bars are closed does not mean we have to cancel Happy Hour! The bad news is that we don't get to see each other in real life, but the good news is people who are normally unable to attend Happy Hour might be able to join us here! So let’s toast with our favorite homemade drink!

Online Book Club – April 18

Quarantine or no quarantine, book club will go on! For April, we will be reading and discussing any of the books that we have yet to read. With the quarantine, we want you to take advantage of those books we have around the house that we meant to get to but just haven't had time. (If you need suggestions, don't hesitate to ask, as we also have some recommendations.) This way we can discover a range of new books together.

Join us for our final big event of the year before summer fully kicks in! We will celebrate America’s birthday with a potluck picnic.   We will have the pleasure of gathering at a lovely member's house near Villefranche-sur-Saone. ACL will be grilling burgers, sausages, hotdogs, and serving a variety beverages.   To showcase the culinary talents of our members at our buffet, we ask for each household to please bring a LARGE side dish or dessert to share (12+ servings). If your last name begins with A-L, please bring a savory dish. If your last name begins with M-Z, please bring a dessert. If you wish to bring a favorite side dish or dessert in addition, we welcome any extra homemade food!

Non-members are welcome to come with members, with a contribution of 10€/adult, 5€/child (over 12 years old).
