Celebrating the 4th of July in Provence


All Americans in Provence--along with anyone else who wants to celebrate American Independence Day--are invited to three 4th of July celebrations, one on July 4, one on the 5th and one on July 6th. 

On Friday evening, July 4th, the American Club of the Riviera has arranged a reception and dinner at the wonderful Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat. For all the details, click here

The Marseille Chapter of Democrats Abroad will hold an Independence Day Yard Sale and Potluck BBQ on Saturday July 5. The Yard Sale starts at 3 pm and the BBQ at 7 pm​. The location is 54 rue des Flots Bleus, 13007 Marseille. (Donations for the yard sale are happily accepted but must be received by June 30. For those of you in Aix, there will be a pick up date in late June. For info on donating, contact: Paulette Theodore at paulettetheo@hotmail.com 06 84 65 79 30.) To RSVP for the potluck, contact: pamela.king@free.fr 06 27 28 28 60.

On Sunday July 6, the Avignon Chapter of Democrats Abroad will hold its potluck BBQ celebration at a private home in Isle sur la Sorgue, from noon to 4 pm. This beautiful setting has a large lawn area that borders the Sorgue River and people will definitely be swimming. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to share with at least five others, a bottle of wine and something for the barbeque. Camping chairs and picnic supplies are also appreciated. Please RSVP before July 1 to Dennis Shibut and let him know what dish you'll bring to share. His email:  d.shibut@free.fr

  2. Hi Julie,
    Much thanks to you for promoting our Independence Day BBQ for Democrats Abroad Avingon in your Provence Post. As a result we inducted eight new members into our Avignon Chapter. That's a record for us in one event, which impressed the national chair, Connie Borde, in Paris. Bravo! :-))
    Cheers,
    Dennis Shibut, Chair
    Democrats Abroad Avignon
