The Beaujolais Nouveau serves as one of the main fundraising opportunities for the FACC to deliver on its mission to stimulate business, develop networks between Ohio and France, and support educational and cultural initiatives with the FACC Ohio Foundation 501(c)3.
The primary mission of the Education Committee is to encourage, promote, and otherwise support the growth and development of educational initiatives focused on French-language-based and internationally oriented education.
The Education Committee membership will be selected from individuals who have significant French-American cultural experiences and have a strong interest in education, including French teachers, French expatriates, and representatives of companies that are French or have significant interests and operations in France.
The Education Committee has active and prospective projects, including:
Since 2008, Cleveland has had a sister city relationship with Rouen. Since then, the FACC Ohio and City of Rouen have initiated multiple cultural exchanges, delegations, and economical development visits.
For the 10th anniversary in 2018, we are planning two key events:
- In Cleveland, a Bastille Day celebration on July 14, 2018
- In Rouen, the 100th anniversary of the armistice of November 11, 1918. It was a ceasefire agreed upon during World War I between the Allies and Germany
Our program is developing nicely, but we need volunteers and donations to make these projects possible. Please consider contacting Executive Director Cedric Le Rouge to learn more about volunteer opportunities and to participate.
