EDISON — International Family Fun Night, an annual treat for the Wardlaw-Hartridge community, attracted another large crowd for an evening of good food and entertainment. The school celebrated its diversity with cuisine and entertainment from many different parts of the world.
“International Family Fun Night has always been my sincere pleasure to coordinate,” said Wardlaw-Hartridge Parents’ Association president Bonnie Nolan of Colonia, the chief organizer of the annual event. “Finding and negotiating with the professional performers is certainly exciting, but what’s even more fun is watching the expressions on the faces of the kids who are so entranced, and that is what it’s all about. Of course, sampling the unbelievable food contributions is a perk and seeing how proud the student performers are to demonstrate the dances and games of their cultures make running IFFN a thoroughly enjoyable experience.”
Wardlaw-Hartridge families contributed all of the food in the buffet line, which included a vast array of Indian and Asian delicacies. The senior class helped set up the buffet and served food to the patrons throughout the evening. For a bargain price of $10, guests were treated to an all-you-can-eat international buffet.
The swimming pool also was open for the children to enjoy.
Physical Education Department Chair Lee Nicholls provided the lifeguards from the lifeguard certification course he taught earlier this year. Many youngsters used the pool throughout the evening.
The Scholastic Book Fair held extended hours Friday and remained open throughout International Family Fun Night. Many youngsters came back with their parents and purchased a few more books.
