Sunday’s the Fauntleroy Fall Festival – and that was one major topic of Tuesday night’s Fauntleroy Community Association meeting. Kim Petram was there with a reminder about a contest you’ll need to plan for in advance: Everyone’s welcome to enter the cake-decorating contest! Any kind of cake, Kim says, any shape, just bake it, decorate it, bring it down and maybe you’ll win a prize. They’re planning categories for competitors from kids to pros. The festival runs 2-5:30 pm at Fauntleroy Church/YMCA/Schoolhouse, but you can bring your cake entry over as early as noon. Entering or not, you’ll want to be there for the cake walk! Full details on this flyer. More festival details ahead, and other FCA business:
The weekend forecast still looks a bit iffy, but even if there’s rain, Kim says they’ll have canopies for outdoor activities, so the usual favorites including pumpkin-painting will go on. This is the 9th year of the festival; see the full schedule of activities (including locations and times) here.
Also at the FCA meeting: Community members brought crime concerns, particularly break-ins, including last summer’s daytime burglaries/burglary attempts. FCA president Bruce Butterfield discussed Block Watch formation and plans to meet with Southwest Precinct crime-prevention coordinator Mark Solomon.
CoolMom’s Terri Glaberson was at the FCA meeting to talk about “Think Outside the Car,” a new emission-reducing campaign for which CoolMom has won a city grant. Part of it involves a no-idling campaign – a topic near and dear to Fauntleroy hearts, with the ferry dock nearby and long lines of waiting vehicles at certain times of day. You can read all about TOTC by going here.
Fauntleroy Community Association usually meets the 2nd Tuesday of the month, 7 pm, at the schoolhouse (9131 California SW); find lots of info here – and, see you at the festival this Sunday!
