Special Events

Every year, the Association des Amis runs several events to enable members from different clubs and activities to meet and make new friends.

 

We all have our own tastes and interests, so we try to propose a range of different activities. We usually meet for a big annual meal at a restaurant, a barbecue or a hog roast, picnics, book-swaps, quizzes, exhibitions by our Photo Club and our Art Club, and now and again, small concerts by our choir.

 

Obviously last year was exceptional because of the health situation, and we had to cancel most of our special events. In July 2021, we managed one book-swap and two meals at a Callac café/restaurant, the « Café de la Place ».   

 

We obviously want these friendly get-togethers to continue, and will try to go mainly for outdoor activities, but we are also on the look-out for new opportunities. Under consideration are:

  • outings that cut across the interests of several clubs, such as the Photo Club, Gardening Club, Art Club, Gourmand Club and Walking Club... , for example

    • an outing to Abbaye du Relecq (Finistère)

    • an outing (one day or two days) to La Gacilly (Ille-et-Vilaine)

    • an outing to Pont-Aven (Finistère)

  • a bring-and-share meal (in the style of "fêtes des voisins" where everyone brings a dish to share)

  • a wine-tasting evening (the one we had in 2017 was a great success)

  • a bingo session (or maybe several if the first one goes well)

 

We welcome other suggestions for social events by members of the Association des Amis, and where possible, we will try to put them on.
