New Year Wishes from the Mairie du 7e

Each January, Rachida Dati, mayor of Paris' 7th arrondissement, invites locals to City Hall to share her well wishes for the new year. Held last night, the annual reception drew quite a crowd. Dati welcomed guests with a speech, including a moment of silence for the victims of Paris’ recent tragedies. In light of the current atmosphere in France, upholding the yearly tradition was an opportunity to show that we must, and will, continue moving forward.

As Dati concluded, guests mingled over champagne and canapés throughout the mairie’s exquisite halls. It was a lovely evening, enjoyed by all.
