French Alumni Community Gets Together for the Great French Tradition of the Galette des Rois

On the 16th of January the French Alumni Community got together to celebrate the Great French tradition of the Galette des Rois. The celebration and networking was organized by the French Alumni Organization (FAA) and hosted by our friends at Silicon Valley Bank in San Francisco. AFAM board member and former US representative Aurore Prevot made delicious almond and apple galettes. There were a lot of French Alumni willing to get together and among them a few gadzarts were enjoying delicious galettes, wine and themselves.
