LADIES LUNCH CLUB D'ARMAGNAC -
We aim to act as a link between women of all nationalities, for social contact and the exchange of information, the organisation of various events including exhibitions, markets, creative workshops, and to share our regional knowledge of life in Gascony, France.
Our objective is to promote friendship between women of all nationalities living in Gascony, SW France, to share our interests and to offer help when needed. The Club started in 2008, with twenty English ladies living in Gascony, using a foreign language and experiencing a new life. Since then, several different groups have been added and our membership has grown into the hundreds, with new ladies moving to the area and ladies who have lived here a while, who have discovered us, who want to make new acquaintances and discover new areas of interest. Today we have eleven nationalities, and our speaking/working language is English. The LLC meets on the second Tuesday of each month, excluding July and August.Every member receives an email each month, giving the name of the restaurant, the chosen, menu and a booking form. In 2014, we became a non-profit making Association, known as Ladies Lunch Club de l’Armagnac. Our annual subscription fee of 10 € is payable in January each year. Each member of the Club may participate in some or all of our various groups
In the hope that the sun just might reappear, this month we have decided on a "Hog Roast". (The caterer is : bulldog bacon & bangers)
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, it is a whole Roast Pork "au Lait", which will be served with a variety of salads.
There will of course be a fish option for vegetarians.
Also this month, to give everyone the opportunity to meet and talk to new people, we would like to try a new seating plan:
On arrival, when paying your lunch money, you will be given a table number. If however you are bringing a guest you will, of course, be able to sit together..
17€ (wine and coffee included)
Red Onion Tart
Whole Roast Pork au lait with apple sauce, stuffing and crackling
Selection of salads and dressings
Please make your reservation on the booking form (attached to the email for members) and submit by noon on Friday 9th May.
If you are bringing a guest please use the same form to book them in.
Again to speed up the collection of lunch money, would you please have this ready in an envelope with your name on, or alternatively you can pay by cheque on the name of the caterer (our treasurer at the desk will give you the proper name of the caterer).
