Inside The French Heritage Society’s ‘April in Paris’ Palm Beach Luncheon
French Heritage Society hosted their “April in Paris” Palm Beach Luncheon on Monday, April 26, 2021 at The Colony Hotel. As their first in-person event of 2021, the atmosphere was particularly festive as guests enjoyed a catered meal and toasted a brighter future from The Colony’s poolside oasis.

Further flair was provided by Luncheon Chairmen CeCe and Lee Black, Audrey Gruss, Liz McDermott Barnes, FHS Board Chairman Elizabeth Stribling and New York Chapter Co-Chairman Guy Robinson. The event was in the presence of Consul General of France in Miami Laurent Gallissot with Camille Langlois. The Steering Committee included Lee Black, Paul Lowerre, and Guy Robinson. Suzanne Stoll was the Palm Beach Representative.
