                     It would be helpful if there was some wort of information package to advise
                     you about starting up a chapter, including budgets, event suggestions...

                     The visit to the farm was a really good idea; adults and children can have
                     fun there and know typical animals.

                     mails/folders and currently on vacation-sorry about the blanks!



                     As most of you know, we had a problem since few years getting the names
                     of newcomers from Schlumberger due to a French privacy law. Recently,
                     the personnel department have done their best to find a way to help us
                     resolving this major problem for SSA. Since last month, we are authorized
                     to get the names of newcomers. 69 families are supposed to arrive to Paris
                     during the summer period. I can consider this as a big achievment for the
                     whole board. In June, we had a tragical accident in SSA Paris as one of
                     our members: Soley Mangal died in an accident inside her house in the
                     west suburb of Paris.She left behind a husband and 3 kids.She was very
                     popular and loved for her big smile and wonderfully positive outlook on life.
                     All SSA members shared their love and thoughts with the Mangal family.
