Annual Membership Goûter
At the start of each year, the membership gathers to review activities, hear about new events planned and elect board members with wine and snacks in the French style.
Nason-Goodman Scholarship Fund
Le comité awards scholarships to qualified St. Louis college students studying in Lyon. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2019-20 academic year. Deadline April 29, 2019.
From the French tradition of oral presentation, le comité holds lectures on subject matter fostering founding member and immigrant Jacques Chicoineau's legacy of sharing the French way of life.
La Fête de la Saint Louis
The St. Louis - Lyon Sister Cities Committee joins the Alliance Française de St. Louis and La Société Française de St. Louis each year on the Feast of Saint Louis to commemorate our City's founding.
La Fête des Vendanges
Our committee’s primary fundraiser, La Fête des Vendanges Dinner is where you'll find the Lyon-loving crowd celebrating the wine harvest. Proceeds from this event fund our programs and scholarships. Reservations are now being taken for this November 17, 2018 event featuring fraternity, food and the fruits of fermentation at the Racquet Club.
High School Exchange Program
After nearly two decades, le comité resumes its support of high school student exchanges between St. Louis and Lyon. Students from Notre Dame de Bellegarde, Neuville sur Saône journeyed to St. Louis March 29-April 9 to visit their partners at Kirkwood High School.
It's not who comes home with the most money that wins, it's who comes home with the most experiences. Francophiles just want to have fun and we plan for it. Below is a list of what le comité has organized for 2018. To learn more, send us a note.
In addition to our annual programs, St. Louis-Lyon Sister Cities participates in a number of events and projects. In 2016, the World Trade Center St. Louis led a delegation of innovators to Lyon to network with counterparts in Lyon.
