Chers Amis,
After much reflection, the Alliance Française de Milwaukee Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the September 13th Cercle d’Or benefit due to concerns about Covid-19. We will be issuing full refunds in the coming days.

We appreciate your support of our mission and we look forward to welcoming you at next year’s event on September 12, 2021.

Merci infiniment,

Michael Crichton, President
Anne Leplae, Executive Director 


We are here for you! For the safety of our members, visitors, staff, and volunteers, and in compliance with Gov. Ever's recommendation regarding COVID-19, the Alliance Française de Milwaukee building will be closed to visitors indefinitely.

But not to worry, we are still here! We are holding our classes through Zoom! as other AFs have done successfully, rescheduling DELF exams, and redesigning events going forward.

Stay cozy and expect to hear from us very soon!

Should you need to contact us, email is the best way.

And, as always, we are deeply grateful for your support! Merci!
Amicalement,
L'équipe de l'Alliance Française de Milwaukee
