After a few years of Pandemic, we are pleased to welcome the Fauntleroy Fall Festival back to our neighborhood. We are excited to offer this long-standing event back to our community. While the pandemic has had some collateral damage on our historical Festival partners, we are still going to help our neighborhood kids paint pumpkins, build bird houses, and make salmon hats. This event has been a stalwart in the community for over 20 years proudly offering free attendance and a number of free activities for kids. Many of our local neighborhood eateries will be present offering delicious Fall-themed food for a fee.
For families and neighbors, please plan to attend the festival. For local organizations and businesses, please consider contributing to the festival to support our commitment to community.
Fall is coming sooner than we think. And with it comes all sorts of activities and fun things to do. The Fauntleroy Community Association is sponsoring “The Great Pumpkin Search” on Saturday, October 8, 2022 from 2 to 5 pm. The Association will have a booth set up in the square across from Endolyne Joe’s. The actual search will take place on the streets that spoke out from that square. There will be little pumpkins, easy to find for the little ones and larger pumpkins for the grown-ups who come. As a bonus, there will be special pumpkins to find in various locations. This is a first come, first serve event so don’t wait too long. This will be a fun way to spend the afternoon. Also just as we needed volunteers for the Spring Egg Hunt, we need to ask you again if you would like to come and help hide the pumpkins. If interested, please contact Candace Blue, 209-401-8406, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please join us on Tuesday June 7th at Endolyne Joe’s for our annual Fall Festival fundraiser! Joe’s will be donating a portion of their sales from the day to the festival, and we will have baskets for a raffle available starting at 5pm. Names will be drawn at 8pm, and you do not need to be present to win!
We are looking forward to bringing the festival back to all of its glory for 2022!
See you Tuesday at Joe’s!
Join us at the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse on Tuesday May 3 from 6-8 pm when the FCA Food Fest and Annual Meeting returns after a two-year pause. Enjoy free tastings from local eateries and learn about the efforts of Fauntleroy volunteers and local organizations. The FCA Annual Meeting at 7 pm will be brief and will include the election of board members.
We’ll be observing current King County recommendations for masking and distancing including meeting in a larger room to allow for plenty of flow between tables.
Bring your friends and family to experience the best of Fauntleroy!
This is a late moment reminder to send comments from Fauntleroy to Sound Transit for its DEIS public comment period. Though Fauntleroy may be distant from the construction zones between West Marginal and Alaska Junction, these issues are relevant to FCA.
DEIS comments are due to Sound Transit by 5:00 p.m. Thursday, April 28. You can email your comments to WSBLEDEIScomments@soundtransit.org, post them online through https://wsblink.participate.online/, or call them in to voicemail at 1-800-471-0879.
Many issues may be important to Fauntleroy residents. For example, if you are employed in the Harbor Island-West Marginal area, or in North Delridge (from the Skylark to the Frye Business Center), those areas are slated for business displacement or teardown. It’s similar for other businesses through Avalon to the Junction, and the newly-built Spruce or Maris apartment buildings are slated for teardown, along with Trader Joe’s and L.A. Fitness, to make way for the three, two block-long light rail stations that Sound Transit proposes.Read More...
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!
The FCA Annual Meeting and Foodfest is back! On Tuesday May 3rd the FCA will hold its Annual Meeting and Foodfest in the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse from 6 to 8 PM. We will once again host various nonprofit organizations and local eateries for a bite of their choosing. FCA’s annual election of board members will be held during a brief business meeting around 7 PM. The event is free for all FCA members. New residents are encouraged to come join the FCA and see the many things available in this amazing community. Current members are encouraged to turn out and welcome in the spring after a long winter. We will be following King County’s curent recommendations regarding masks and Vaccinations.
Remember FCA’s great fall pumpkin hunt in 2020?
Or last spring’s egg hunt? If you enjoyed participating or were sorry you missed them, another hunt is coming the week of April 11! Watch for details in the mail about FCA’s spring egg hunt, then pick a sunny-side-up day that week to to poach. This event is sure to go over easy with the whole family. Candace Blue could use help whipping the hunt into high peaks. If you might be able to give a hand, contact her about what needs doing and when at 209-401-8406 or email@example.com.
