Recently members of the French Community were welcomed to the residence of the newly arrived French Consul of France.

The outgoing French Consul is back in Paris on various missions after having completed his turn here in Florida and Puerto Rico. 

Monsieur Laurent Gallissot, French Consul in Miami along with his partner Monsieur Camille Langlois greeted guests at the front door with smiles and handshakes.  Everyone enjoyed Champagne and hors d’oeuvres while engaging in courteous conversations.  A one minute moment of silence was shared by the crowd in memory of the late French President Jacques Chirac.  Afterwards Monsieur Gallissot officially introduced himself to guests in perfect English then joined to ‘meet and greet’ his guests in the garden patio area.
