COVID19 update - IMPORTANT

by Rachel Villeger

Dear members,

As we all know, the local COVID19 cluster is growing bigger every day, so it is our duty to keep all the members of our Francophile community safe. When you come to AFW to attend our classes and events, you might not meet all of our members and students, however our community has active members and students as young as 6 months old and then of all ages, including many senior citizens, most of whom attend all our activities on a weekly basis.

Because of this and because of the seriousness of the current local outbreak, we have no choice but to close the Alliance Française of Westchester from March 14th, 5.30pm until March 30th, 9am.
