One response to “About

  1. Bonjour! I am a former Executive Director of Nashville Sister Cities, which has a relationship with Caen. I attended the Foire de Caen in 2003, and stayed with the Bienvenue family at that time. I would be delighted to renew my SC membership here in Alexandria, and reconnect with friends on both sides of the pond. -Claiborne Gayden
