On 7 September, our annual picnic brought together 300 people on a fine late summer’s day at the Chassagnes middle school in Oullins. We would like to thank François Steiblen for allowing us to enjoy this beautiful location for our gathering. It was an opportunity for families from far afield to meet up. Children had fun with the games, teenagers helped with face-painting and playing with the little ones and young adults served drinks. Anne Montel and Emilie Deregnaucourt gave updates on association activities. They all look forward to meeting again next year!
