Dear members, dear all
As you all know, Carole Granade has left for France and I have been appointed new Director of the FAACSF. I will do my best to focus on and develop the FACCSF missions : fostering the relationships between the French and American business communities, helping the newcomers to the Bay Area and answering your business and networking needs as well as possible. I would be very happy to hear about your experience with the Chamber, your expectations and wishes, in order to make sure we work in line with the French business community.
I hope to have the pleasure to meet and work closely with you very soon. In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact us, and participate to the events that are coming up.
THEY NEED YOUR SUPPORT!!
The Association « The French Will Never Forget » (TFWNF) was created in 2003 in reaction to the anti French sentiments which prevailed in a large portion of the American population, following the diverging analysis of France on the situation in Iraq and her ensuing refusal to commit troops to operation “Desert Storm”. A standard cliché regularly returning in several American media, and hammered by various pundits and
political figures was that France did not remember what the United States had done for her during the First and the Second World War , and was just ungrateful. Read more about the Association “The French Will Never Forget”
The 2011 Memorial Project : The key idea is to erect, on September 11 2011, a scaled reproduction of both World Trade Center Towers, in front of the Palais de Chaillot esplanade. These will be built by erecting scaffolding which will be covered on each of the four sides by a white tarpaulin. Each of the towers will measure approximately 30 meters in height (or the equivalent of a 10-story building) and will be 4 meters wide. The technical aspects of the project have been validated by the firm OGER INTERNATIONAL, and the LAYHER Company will be tasked with the actual construction of these scaffolding. These two companies are world-renowned in their respective field. Click here for a detailled explaination of the operation.

The Basque Cultural Center was at its best Saturday evening the 9th of July for the “Bal Populaire” célébration of ” Bastille Day". About 180 people, mostly French, were in attendance for the dinner and dance to the music of Ron Borelli.
The President of the “Comité Officiel” reminded everyone of the spirit of the 1789 revolution: “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité “. The Consul General’s address followed, then a presentation from the representative of the Mayor of San Francisco, after which dinner was served. The menu was as follows:
-Potage a la Parisienne (leek and potato soup)
-Coquilles St. Jacques a la Basquaise (scallops - this is absolutely delicious; if you go for dinner, it is a must)
-Filet mignon ou poulet rôti (most chose the filet, others the chicken and we had 3 vegetarians). -The meat was cook to order, the assortment of fresh vegetables was excellent and so were the “frites"!
-Salade et fromages.
-Baba au Rhum de la Martinique.For wines we enjoyed the following:
-Macon Lugny les Genevrieres” 2009 which comes from a special designated vineyard. The very high quality ressembles more a Chassagne Montrachet than the average white burgundy. It went very well with the scallops.
-Pinot Noir “Louis Latour” 2008. This select burgundy went very well with the beef. Not too heavy but enough tannin to please the palate.
Then we had café arrosé, with either Cognac or Anisette.During the dinner, the accordion player went around the tables, serenading attendees. The opening of the ball started with a traditional waltz, followed by the tango, Paso dobles, rock and roll and more. A large group of young people between 30 and 40 closed the place.
It was a beautiful evening with love and harmony.
Happy Bastille Day to all!!!Basque Cultural Center
