Le Club Français is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting an environment for the French language to prosper for all people in the St. John Valley, an area deeply connected to its Franco-American and Acadian heritage.

They seek to influence attitudes towards use of French language in the region by raising awareness and demonstrating its cultural, linguistic, and economic value. Through education, recognition, encouragement, and community service, they support those who value French as a viable and beneficial form of expression in the St. John Valley.

Le Club Français holds monthly meetings in French. It serves as an important repository for preserving French culture and language related to the St. John Valley. Books for adults and children are available on loan.
