Salon d'Autrefois! We continue to celebrate our Centennial!
Our "Salon d'Autrefois" is inspired by the salons of Europe in the 17-19th centuries and by our own AFO founding members — i.e. the Giffords, the Doorlys, the Offuts — when they hosted a variety of cultural and social events in their Gold Coast homes from 1917 through the 1940’s.
Just as our founding members held "salons" in their homes, we will gather at the beautiful Old Market penthouse of member Mary Jochim (Directions will be sent when you reserve) to enjoy a lovely program, conversation, and camaraderie in a warm atmosphere over French desserts, tea, and sparkling wines.
Some of our performing artists will include:
Susie Baer Collins et ses amis acteurs — Théâtre français
Juliette Parnell — Poésie symboliste
Anne Marie Kenny — Chansons et mélodies d’amour
Robert Runyon — Le Petit Prince: quelques belles citations
(If you would like to perform, please let us know.)
