The Northern California Chapter hosts a variety of cultural & social events to share insider knowledge of a facet of French culture.  In addition to supporting a  restoration project, located in France or the United States, (see the recent list below), the chapter participates in the local community.  The N. CA  Chapter is honored to be a Cultural Sponsor at the San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show.

To introduce high school students to the importance of preserving culture for future generations, seven years ago a Student Essay Contest was created for tenth grade students at the Lycée International Franco-Américain   San Francisco.

FHS is excited to present this year’s Chairman’s Circle trip to the Côtes du Rhône. Our six-night trip will begin in the dramatic ancient city of Avignon, which is renowned for its majestic Palais des Papes, a UNESCO World Heritage site. We will explore the splendid Provencal landscapes and monuments in the surrounding area, including the gorgeous 12th-centuy Romanesque Abbaye de Sénanques, and Gordes, renowned as one of the most beautiful villages of France. We will be hosted in style at individual homes for private receptions in Avignon and Gordes.
