Ponies Coming to FASNY Spring Fair: June 5

Ponies, ping pong balls, and patisserie will come together on June 5 from 11:30 to 3:30 at the Spring Fair of the French-American School of New York (FASNY).

FASNY, celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, will host its Kermesse, or Spring Fair, at the Lower School campus at 111 Larchmont Avenue in the Village of Larchmont.

This is one of the few school fairs in the area to offer pony rides, a fixture in many French parks. There will be other activities, such as face painting and a duck pond. This year, FASNY is introducing new games for older children, like the tricky tennis ball toss. Fairgoers will also enjoy the new henna “tattoos” which are applied by drawing a design onto the skin using organic henna paste.

The fair also will feature environmentally-friendly activities. The Green Club, comprised of FASNY Upper School students, will host a stand to sell items made from recycled goods. Also present will be Westchester County’s Veggie Van, a mobile classroom inside a van retrofitted to run on used vegetable oil. The Veggie Van educates visitors on alternative fuels, recycling and renewable energy.

FASNY Spring Fair’s international buffet, with its loyal and local following, is returning and will be fully stocked with savory and sweet dishes prepared by FASNY families and staff, who come from over 50 countries. In the past, the smorgasbord has featured such delicacies as French quiche, Moroccan couscous, and Sri Lankan Colombo chicken. All of this is complemented by delectable cakes, cookies, and other desserts. The Upper School’s Cultures du Monde club will also showcase international gourmet specialties. For those with less daring palettes, there will be pizza, along with Fair favorites of popcorn and cotton candy.

The celebration will take place rain or shine.

  • complement

    Hello, I assume this is a press release written by an international team, yet “complemented” in that context (last paragraph) still spells like I did in this context. Charity begins at home, especially for an academic institution. Spelling mistakes are not welcome, especially when so trivial.

    Hi Judy and Editor who made a correction – thank you for bringing this up but in this context, according to the American Heritage Dictionary of the American Language and the Advanced Oxford English Dictionary, “complement” or “complemented”. in this context is correct. The definition of complement is: Something that completes, makes up a whole or brings to perfection. Is there something else in the spelling that I am missing? The word “complimented” would be incorrect in this context according to its definition.

    I am a bilingual parent at the French American School and I am also a writer. While I choose my words carefully, I am not a good speller. But here, I strongly believe the word “complemented” and its spelling are indeed correct. But I am always open for correction.

    Sincerely, Katie Weisman DESVALLEES

      the original release used “complimented”

      we changed that to “complemented”

      This can get a bit confusing!

    A compliment to the Larchmont Gazette, while sharing the words of Joseph Stowell, ‘Being part of an agenda beyond ourselves liberates us to complement each other rather than compete with each other.’

    I stand chagrined. Saw the original press release and indeed there was the typo – even after being read by several admins. Zut alors, as we say in French! K
