The annual celebration of Bastille Day on July 14, 2013 was, as always, "fantastique". The Presidents of the Alliance Francaise of Greenwich, Gail Covney and Renee Ketcham, led a beautiful ceremony celebrating French Independence. Guests included Yann Yochum, head of the press and political office for the French Consulate in New York, and Jean Lachaud, President of the American Society of Le Souvenir Francais, Inc.
