For all of the Francophiles of Mt. Vernon, French Club is a place to express that love, and it is one of the many clubs that MVHS has to offer.
On August 28, elections for French Club Council were held in Mr. Freeman’s classroom.
Of the members present, running for council were Caty McGovern, Ian Carson, Dani Abraham, Peyton Scott, Savannah Donaldson and Erica Lohman.
However, only three of them would be council members.
As of August 28, the French Club Council consists of Dani Abraham, 11, Peyton Scott, 12, and Erica Lohman, 11. The unofficial historian is Ian Carson, 12.
The council last year was Peyton Scott, Kade Padgett, 12, and Sabrina Woods, 12.
French Club meets monthly throughout the year, and the council meets weekly to discuss matters, like plans for the next club meeting, club fees, and long-term plans that require lots of planning. This club gives members a chance to eat delicious French cuisine, play games like Boule, and watch French movies with English subtitles. They even have water balloon fights.
The students involved with French Club find themselves enjoying this extra-curricular activity.
“We don’t put labels on things. We are a council and are all equal in power. I usually plan meetings and keep things in order and interesting,” said Peyton Scott, council member. “We are a club that loves the French culture while also sticking to our American roots.”
The French Club is still taking members, so if any of these activities sound interesting, talk to a member.
