The Caen Lyceum Club was created in 1996 by Françoise Le COUTOUR who came to us from the Club at Fontainebleau, aided by 26 founding members. The inaugural ceremony was carried out in the presence of Jacqueline Suttin, National President of the French Federation. At that time Françoise had met Joanne SILVER, who came to study in Caen, and she encouraged her to set up a club in Philadelphia, in 2002.
In 2003, when Brigitte GRANDCLEMENT took over from Françoise, the Club consisted of 61 members. During her presidency it grew to 97.
In 2009, Chantal GIRAUD succeeded herand the Club brought together up to 105 members !
By 2015, it had 95 members when Béatrice FIX took charge.

At the beginning of 2021, under the presidency of Astrid L’Honneur, we are a club composed of 86 members  and one that is very dynamic. Each term a new programme is offered to the members of the Lyceum club; conferences on a variety of subjects (historical, artistic, scientific and economic) visits to exhibitions, to areas in our region of  cultural interest and visits to business sites. Our members can also join different activities (painting , drawing, philosophy, English conversation, classes bridge, a book group and a study group of La Fontaine’s Fables…) or they can join a group of walkers, a lunch group, and attend theatre  or cinema outings.  Each year in June there is a cocktail party and a dinner is organized in December which encourages  contacts between members developing new friendships. New members of the Lyceum club are invited to attend the National Seminar on the Creation of Multi-Clubs.

Our club participates in :

                       – International Literary exchanges between the French club and the book club in Rabat in Marocco via video conferences  

                       – International meetings : Tri-annual gatherings and the Cultural day meetings

                       – National meetings: General meetings of the French Federation of the LCI and  meetings between clubs.
