French language club
elects new officers
L’Aventure Française, the
Clackamas French language
club, announced the election of
new club officers for the 1998-
1999 school term, said Club
President Ralouka Yabroudi in
a statement released last week.
All students attending the
first club meeting chose the
following students: Malek
LaFollet, Club Representative;
Stefanie Smith, Treasurer; J.
Scott Branscum, Promotions
Officer; Timothy Mellin, Vice
Yabroudi, President.
“The club’s purpose is to
promote an interest and under­
standing of French language
and Francophone culture
through a variety of activities
throughout the Pacific North­
west region,” said Yabroudi.
It is not necessary to be a
French language expert to be
an active participant in the
club, said Yabroudi; the only
requirement is to regularly at­
tend classes at Clackamas and
have an interest in French lan­
guage and culture.
“The club plans to get its
members involved in activities
such as theater, films, concerts,
lectures, performances and
outings with other
French speaking mem­
bers of the metro com­
munity. These activi­
ties will serve to help
students find practical,
yet enjoyable ways to
grow in their under­
standing of the French
language and culture,”
she said.
The next meeting of
L’Aventure Française is
Dec. 4, in Barlow 203
at 1:00 p.m. to discuss
fund raising and Christ­
mas activities.
Those interested in
finding out more about
club activities can con­

ter, Room 203 of
