Alexis O’Brien, vice president and senior, explains the situation of interest in French Club. She said one thing to improve for next year is organization in terms of who is participating in which events.

French Club officers have recently been planning a cooking class with Chef Sentissi, a Moroccan chef, according to sponsor Lisa Carroll. However, due to a lack of interest, French Club will likely have to cancel the cooking class.

“We haven’t really talked about doing much for the cooking class lately. We tried to do this last year but it didn’t work out. We asked a Moroccan chef nearby to come in and teach us how to make a Moroccan dish, because [Morocco] is a Francophone country, and this was just supposed to be a fun cultural thing,” Alexis O’Brien, vice president and senior, said. “But we didn’t have enough people sign up, and it wouldn’t really be worth the chef’s time to come in and teach four people.”

O’Brien said the lack of participants prevented French Club from holding this event last year, and the same issue continues to plague French Club as it struggles to gather enough interest.

O’Brien said, “Sometimes [when] we have late after-school activities people don’t show up as much because it’s really inconvenient for them.

“We’re probably going to try to get a tally of how many people are interested in the cooking class through sign-up monkey or during next meeting.”
