Return to In Person Business Meetings!

date posted: 07 Apr 2022

The Fauntleroy Community Association is returning to in-person business meetings. On April 12th the FCA board will meet in the Emerald Room at the Hall at Fauntleroy (South end of the School House building) instead of our usual meeting place in the boardroom. Out of caution we have selected a larger space in which to meet. Alternatively we will still be operating our meeting in a hybrid fashion, allowing folks to connect via Zoom. Details for registering for the Zoom meeting can be found at fauntleroy.net/meetings

It’s almost time! For what, you say? The FCA Annual Spring Egg Hunt, of course. Between April 12 and April 16, volunteers will be hiding eggs throughout the greater Fauntleroy area. This is a no-candy event. The boundaries are 35th Ave SW, SW Morgan St and Puget Sound. So keep your eyes open for eggs that may appear on any day. When you see one, grab the kiddies and go hunting!

After finding an egg, we would love it if you would post a picture on Facebook, Twitter, or on Instagram. Don’t forget to tag your photo with #FCAegghunt. Also you can recycle the eggs at either the Old School House or at 8801 Fauntleroy Way SW. Have an eggsellent time!

Fall Festival Needs Fresh Volunteer Energy, Ideas

date posted: 01 Nov 2021

In September 2001, the United States went through one of its most challenging times. When I woke up that morning to the news that an airplane had flown into a building in New York, I hit “Snooze.”

By the time my clock radio came on again, another plane had flown into another building. I rushed downstairs to watch on TV as one of the biggest tragedies in American history unfolded. Kids at school, our teachers, our parents - everyone knew our lives had changed.

FAUNTLEROY FALL FESTIVAL WILL TAKE PLACE ON SUNDAY, OCT. 24, 2-5PM (OR FOR AS LONG AS SUPPLIES LAST).
