EDISON, NJ - International Family Fun Night, the annual celebration of the many cultures of The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison, provided an evening of food, entertainment and fun for the whole family. Guests enjoyed an international buffet while watching dances from different parts of the world. Many adults and some students also donned international attire to enhance the spirit of the event.

Students, primarily from the Lower and Middle School, participated in cultural dances. Among the highlights were Indian dances, African dances and Irish dancing. There were also crafts and henna for the kids to enjoy.

The event was run by co-chairs Bindu Dalal of Scotch Plains and Jen Schildge of Westfield and proceeds were directed to the senior class, specifically to help fund the costs of the prom. Seniors, their advisors and deans helped serve food to the guests.
