Here are two nice events from Scarsdale High School:
YES Spring Flower Sale
The Scarsdale Youth Employment Services office (YES) is a community organization that matches bright, talented, ambitious Scarsdale teenagers with prospective employers. They depend on donations from the community to sustain their school office and convenient online system. They have an exciting new fundraiser for the Spring of 2012.
YES has collaborated with Living Color Fundraiser to provide you with the best quality plants and flowers for your garden at great prices. Please order all your flowers, vegetables, seeds and herbs to plant in your garden this Spring and support the good work done at YES. Hanging baskets and color bowls will also be available as Mother's Day Gifts. Orders will be accepted through April 5th and delivered the first week of May.

Here is a letter from French Teacher Laura Bell, inviting all former French students to the event:
Chers étudiants et anciens membres du Cercle Français,
Salut tout le monde!
This school year marks the 90th anniversary of the Scarsdale High School French Club, making it one of the longest-running clubs in the history of SHS. You have all been a part of this special history as students of French and especially as members of le Cercle Français. Perhaps you played a role in one of our great videos, ground-breaking technology for its time! Or did you write an article or a poem for our newspaper Papier Mâché? Do you remember flipping crêpes or donning funny costumes during our Mardi Gras relay races? Or how about preparing one of the recipes in our cookbook "Bon Appétit" or attending the traditional autumn festival dinner? Did you work on our series of calendars or participate in the International Fair as models of French haute couture or dancers of the can-can? How many crêpes au Nutella did you serve to hungry students?
Or did you simply enjoy the beauty of the French language and the culture of France?
For some of you, more than thirty years have sped by since we last saw each other; for others, only a few. On April 14, we will have the chance to reconnect, to share the memories. You will also have the opportunity to meet the current officers and members while enjoying a delicious dinner of, bien sûr, crêpes!
Please join us. It's been too long.
