AFCDC is a not-for-profit organization, chartered in North Carolina, whose purpose is to promote an appreciation of French history and culture through the study of, and support for, the Château de Compiägne, France. The Chateau is one of the most famous and culturally important landmarks in France. AFCDC was founded by the same person (Michelle LeChatelier) who initiated the establishment of Compiägne as a Raleigh Sister City. The Sister Cities Association’s mission is “promoting peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation—one individual, one community at a time.”
The AFCDC has been providing support for the Château for several years and has taken ownership of restoring the Ladies-in-Waiting room at the Château de Compiägne.
