The Legation Boules Club has one very special Honorary Member - Bert Piboin.
Bert is special because he comes to pétanque events - yet never picks up a boule!
Well, Bert is a francophile. He likes all things French. The food, the wine, the French countryside... he can't get enough.
Bert is also a loyal member of the Alliance Française of Austin. That means he supports the Alliance, just like the LBC, every second and fourth Sunday of the month by always showing up with a great offering of wine and other French delicacies wherever we are playing pétanque.
It's amazing how generous he is!
So last Sunday, in appreciation for all that he does for us, the LBC managed to present Bert with a hefty gift certificate redeemable at his favorite store in the whole wide world - the Austin Wine Merchants.
We in the LBC are very fortunate to have Bert in our community.
Thank You Bert!
