ohhh la la! Check out the French candies at this relatively new Magazine street confections shop, La Rivière Confiserie! They opened in December 2015 and ship items to you (and their shop) directly from France! We may have to step up our krewe candies beyond Atomic FIreballs and Ring Pops! ... See MoreSee Less

"BECAUSE MY VOICES TOLD ME, (IN ENGLISH), THAT IT'S ABOUT TIME I LEARNED FRENCH!" --Amy, Krewe captain
The Joan of Arc Project is arranging for a special class through Alliance Francaise that is just for krewe members. This is a generous offer by Alliance Francaise to give a special rate and assign a teacher who can tailor the course to not only include 101 French but to include some very specific Joan of Arc phrases that we can use in the parade. The goal is to: learn very basic French, and learn approx. one dozen phrases to repeat and use in the parade, with perfect French pronunciation! :)
It's also a great social gathering for those of us Francophiles who love French but have yet to speak it! This is just the beginning, we hope, of a long love affair with learning French...let's do this together! Vive Jeanne d'Arc!
We need a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 10 for the class, so space is very limited. The cost is $255 for an 8 week session, which also includes a free annual membership to Alliance Francaise!!! That's just $32 a class!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, YOU MUST EMAIL JOANOFARCPARADE@GMAIL.COM by May 27th so that we can finalize everything.
Because Saturdays are full already at the Alliance Francaise house at Jackson Street, we are going to have hold the class off-site with an AF teacher. I will be looking at various options that are centrally located with easy parking.
The plan is a 2 hour class, 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturdays from August 6 to September 24th. ***WE WILL CANCEL THE SEPTEMBER 17TH CLASS BECAUSE OF THE SALON DE JEANNE D'ARC AND HAVE A MAKEUP CLASS.***
Please let me know if this is of interest, by emailing email@example.com with FRENCH CLASS in the header. ... See MoreSee Less

Joan Of Arc ProjectCaptain's Note: Already some wonderfully fluent French speaking krewe members are writing to me that they too can offer classes. That's MAGNIFIQUE!! By all means, let's get this party started...or, these PARTIES started! We want to encourage as much French speaking at our parade and events as possible. Saturdays happen to be best for me, and I want to honor and strengthen our partnership with Alliance Francaise. But this does not mean that's our only option--of course not!! We have done smaller "power French" workshops and can set up many more and other of these. This is just me, finally, biting the bullet and getting a formal class going as it's been on my krewe bucket list for so long.6 days ago · 1
